Garland: Simply Valentine Style

Welcome to another 3D Challenge with Paper Craft Planet.  This week’s crafting, 3d199, is simple and sweet for Valentines.  It’s an old fashioned Garland.

You can cut out hearts by hand, with a paper punch or with a digital cutter.  I thread mine with kite string.

I’m not great with scissors, so I drew a quick svg for the digi cutter.  Here’s my SVG, you can download it here, or you can bring it out to cut it by hand.

It’s a quick, easy, craft that is a simple decoration to any home.

Simple & one of those crafts you do while watching tv in an evening.

Give it a go, and upload your project to Paper Craft Planet. Don’t forgot to tag your photo with 3d199, so everyone can see it.

The template I used is called “Home Tweet Home” it’s this adorable little bird cage that you could put goodies in or little love birds, like I did:

The DSP paper is from Stampin’ Up! as well as the little die cut birds.  The square scalloped bottom is using some nestabilities:

Here’s one more of the many templates you could win!

It’s called “Isn’t She Lovely Dress” & it would be adorable for any girl or bridal shower type special occasion:

And here’s one more of the many templates you could win!

It’s the Heart Box!

The beauty thing that I love about Digi Files is that you can size it to WHATEVER you want.  I sized mine to 50%, because I was low on pink paper & voilà:

I tied mine a bit different than the template.  The box style Adela designed is so sturdy, it could handle being “sewn” with Raffia:

You can put whatever goodies you want & tie it up securely.

Have fun ya’ll & hop, hop, hop for your chances to win!  Leave a comment in this entry, and more even more chances to win, at the other DT’s sites too!

Just one more sneak peek at one of Adela’s new templates.  I adore all of the templates from Creations by AR, but I LOVE this one!  Totally Tote-able —  Great for chocolates, cookies, any little gift you want to dress up.  Once again, easy to use, using either the pdf or a digital cutting file & look at the cute way it unfolds:

Just fun.

It comes with a scalloped edge & you can punch it with a circle punch or with a tear drop punch, like I did.

This one is going to my Emma-Sian.  :)

Hope you have as much fun with the templates as I did.

Marigoldy Wearable

Paper Craft Planet’s 3D Challenge this week, 3d69, is Wearable Art.  It uses Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel and layered Flowers.

My DD isn’t into the ribbon thing, she’s more grungy–raggedy-denim & that’s where I started with this project.

I repurposed this old watch that for whatever reason, I hadn’t thrown out.  (Anybody remember the Oprah watch-ribbon craze?  Well this was my cheapy watch that I had some fun with & then the battery died & I think it was more expensive to change the battery than to replace the cheapo watch).  lol

and just made the soft side toward the wrist & the bumpy side is where I adhered the flower.

And Bob’s Yur Uncle, a little shabby-chique brooch-bracelet for DD.

Here’s a link, for those who want the svg, of the “marigold-ish” type layered flower I drew.


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?

Cake Inspired

Time for a challenge from Embellish Magazine.  This challenge is to add a decorative border, using paper.

I thought the cake image from Queen of Tartes was pretty cool.  I did my best at drawing this in Illustrator & then saving it as an SVG & then using my cricut machine to cut.  As for the colours, I had some of this paper from Karen Avery called Orchids that hit the green, yellow, pink & peach targets fairly well.  The sentiment is from Vintage Postcard, Stampin’ Up!  Along with Cameo Coral & Green Galore Markers & some embroidery floss.

Honestly, the colours are there …

Here’s my card:

Here’s my illustrator drawing.  It’s saved as a jgp file here, for some reason, my blog won’t upload svg files & I don’t have time to figure out why.

Mug of Love


This is for Lori’s Paper Craft Planet 3D Challenge, 3d41, Enjoy a Cup of Cocoa.

For the cup, I used Clear & Simple Stamps Free Mug Template here.

For a ‘how to’ on the Chocolate Coated Spoon, check out Lori’s blog.  Such a clever girl!


The Paper is from K & Company Blue Awning.


Here’s the back of the mug.


The Luke Banner, I drew up in Illustrator & saved as an svg file, so I could cut it out in my old cricut machine, via Sure Cuts A Lot Software.


The SVG’s were cut in two layers:
