Quick Favour Box

Paper Craft Planet’s 3D 134 Tuesday … finally … Sorry this is about 6 hours late.  I’ll be honest here I was updating google calendar with the kids rediculous activities schedule & I noticed about an hour ago that I had completely forgotten about the challenge … bad me.

To that … good news, THIS IS a quick craft!  Bwha ha.  Hopefully you enjoy it.

This is a very Clever craft from SJRenoir, which is one of my “go to” quick boxes.  There is a template, which I have converted to an SVG file so that I can use Sure Cuts a Lot in my Cricut machine.

I have an old cricut machine & occasionally have problems finding the small mats.  Here’s a secret.  You can cut a big mat & make 3 small mats …

Score …

Fold ..

Tie …

And Bob’s Yur Uncle ..

The template can be found at SJRenoir:


This week’s 3D Challenge from Paper Craft Planet, 3d75, “Purse”-onality, is so darn cute!  Adela provided us with a freebie template pattern to make it too!

I used some Martha Stewart paper, Embellishments: Creations by AR, Stamp: SU! Cercle D’Amitié, Ink: Certainly Celery, MM Brads.  It was so quick to throw together.

Be sure to check out the 3d75 Album for more fun interpretations.

Girly Box

Time for a challenge from The Cinema Saturday Creative Folks.  This week, #82 is the 2010 movie of Alice in Wonderland.  I really wanted to make a teapot for this one, but I can’t wrap my head around the template that I have in my brain.  I have a request into a friend who is a template making guru, so I’m hoping she can make it.  IN the mean time, I just made a VERY quick dress favour Box in illustrator & cut out on my small Cricut machine with the help of Sure Cuts a Lot Software.

Nothing fancy, but I think it would be cute for bridal showers or a little girls party.

For now, I just put in a bit of … what else … tea.

Here’s the template, if you want.  2 of my 3 kids think it looks more like a bear or mickey mouse ears, but they’re tough on me at times.  My middle son thought it definitely looked like a dress … Somebody’s getting a raise in their allowance :D


Pinwheels & spring time just go together, don’t they?  In the Spring we used to get new jump ropes, outdoor chalk, kites & pinwheels.  I guess my parents wanted me out of the house LOL.

This week over at Paper Craft Planet the 3D Project this week, 3d57,  is from Wendy, inspiring us to make Pinwheels.  I love that she used them as an embellishment on a card, so cute!  I couldn’t wait to try this, so I pulled out some K & Company Berry Sweet Patterned Paper.

I used an incredible outline template from Style me Pretty, well, to be honest, I drew it again so I could save it as an SVG file to have my Sure Cuts a lot Software cut a bunch in my Cricut Cutter machine.

EDITED:  Here is a link to the SVG I drew from Style Me Pretty’s beautiful template.  What can I say, svgs faster than scissors.

Did I mention how lazy I am with scissors?  It took me about 20 minutes to draw it, save it & cut it.  Probably faster if I had used scissors, but here’s what I had …

I made one with a brad, using my Crop-a-dile to punch the holes in the paper & in the popscicle stick.

The crop-a-dile does a really tidy punch, but with the brad, the pinwheel doesn’t spin.

So I made another, with a straight Pin, bent.

Make sure it has room to spin …

I used super sticky tape to hold the pin in place & make sure no fingers are hurt …

I covered the tape with patterned paper.

And then had two super cute pinwheels.  Wouldn’t they look great as a stir stick in a Cosmopolitan Drink for GNO?   Or party favors for a little girls party?

Five Sided Favours

I’m hosting Paper Craft Planet’s 3D Tuesday Challenge this week & I thought we’d play with a free template.  I’m hoping you’ll enjoy trying out 3D56, Five Sided Favours challenge.  It’s just small to put in chocolates, candies, or chamomile tea :D

So I used a free template from Timeless Treasure Trunk.  Which I printed out & then stuck onto Martha Stewart Patterned Paper & cut & scored.  Easy Peasy & very quick, I must say.  I doesn’t take up a lot of paper & all the cuts are STRAIGHT, woo-hoo, so you could make a bunch of these.

I made the template a bit more printer friendly, but it is the SAME gorgeous template from the clever folks at Timeless Treasure Trunk.  I found it was easier to size it up on the printer in this format:

And here it is again.  Great for Wedding/Bridal Shower Favours, small gifts, whatever, just cute, almost like a small hat box:

Be sure to upload your basket weaving to the Paper Craft Planet site.  Never tried uploading a photo to Paper Craft Planet?  Here’s a step-by-step tutorial for adding photos to the PCP Gallery.  Once their in the gallery & TAGGED with 3d56, I can find them & add them to the 3d56 album! Don’t forget to link it back here to this discussion so we can all see it!
