Once Upon a Time

Once Upon a Carriage


I’ve made two of the new adorable templates for you to see.

First is the High Top Baby Sneakers … the Sneakies!

I made the Sneakies with some Pink Velour paper & the kids have asked that their Build-a-Bears get a pair too!

Next was probably my favourite of all the beautiful templates.  So quick to make & so little girl presentable!

It’s the Carriage:

The carriage opens up to put a treat inside:

Can I say how much I LOVE Adela’s 3D templates … I ADORE THEM.

Thanks to Adela from Creations By AR for all this FUN!

Butterfly Gift Box: Wingin’ It!

This week’s 3D challenge at Paper Craft Planet, 3D128, is making a Butterfly Gift Box.
It’s a cute free design from Paper Craft Printable prepared by Paper Craft Art Creative hinging closed at the wings.

Open it up & voilà, resealable.

There’s an inside flap …

This little gift box could hold some treats or whatever.

Here’s a tiny photo of the template, but you can download the template here.

Hope you have fun playing along this week & if you do be sure to tag your creation with 3d128 so I can look for it & put it in the Album!

Ahoy! Treasure Chest Template

‘Tis a pirate treasure box we’re makin’ this morning for Paper Craft Planet’s Tuesday 3D Challenge Group!

I love surfing & seeing what all the clever people come up with & this treasure box is one of my finds! Tektonten offered a free template for this “Disney-style Treasure Chest”, which I thought would be perfect for the 3D 125 challenge.

You can certainly use the graphics they have or you can do as I did & print it out on white paper & colour the paper. I used Brilliance Galaxy Gold Dew Drop Ink, Tsukineko Terra Cotta Walnut Antiquing solution spray, as well as Cats Eyes ColorBox Merlot Ink. I used simple white paper that would fit in my 20 year old printer (don’t get me started, it still works).

The box itself is curved & very cute, IMO.

The template came with an inside box as well, which I decided to leave out.

Be sure to upload your creations & tag it with 3D125, so I can put it into the 3D125 Album for all to see.
Hope you have fun with it, I did!

Once again, to download the free file, check out Tektonten, but this is a tiny look at what you’ll be downloading.
