I have been busy making up gift boxes and treat bag specifically for Valentines Day. You can find my collection of free gift boxes to download in the Titles, Tags, Design Elements and Gift Boxes section.
This week I
struggled created a very sweet little treat box/bag to share for Valentines Day. I meant to grab some cinnamon hearts to fill before a photographed so my little boxes look a little empty!. Oh well- I would just end up eating them anyway 🙂
Some days I make a cutting file and it cuts perfectly first time… then there are days like today ….. not too much went right and my OCD was careening out of control trying to make everything perfect! Make the Cut software kept crashing when I opened the file I created on my main computer. You can just use the SVG file with no problem. I did submit a support ticket and hope to hear back from Make the Cut soon. The issue seemed to be with the dash lines- when i changed line to dash file would crash program. I would be curious to know if any of you had issue with this file as well.
I can tell you that since I have been using Make the Cut to actually cut with my cutting machine machine my frustrations have really diminished. Generally I get perfect cuts on my scrapbook paper 90% of the time. I used to have battles with my KNK Studio software so I was pretty concerned when this problem popped up. I am sure its something that is an easy fix and will keep you posted. I have been using my KNK Groove-E for about 4 months now and LOVE it. At first I couldnt see the use of flatbeds but now couldn’t live without.
Also had my USUAL ATG Gun issues! I know that scrapbookers and card makers LOVE this scrapbook tool but I am still not convinced.I actually had to make my video 3 times- the ATG gun kept screwing up and my cameraman/daughter couldn’t stop laughing.
I have made this Valentines Day cutting in file in several formats, outlined below:
Free Heart Treat Box Cutting File for Valentine’s Day
Heart Treat Box in SVG GSD KNK and MTC formats
I used Lettering Delights Love is Sweet Paper Pack to print the paper you see used in the pic of treat bags. All you have to do it print the pattern with any photo imaging software or using Make the Cut! software. I did up a short video in how to print papers using Make the Cut, Printing Your Own Scrapbook Paper- Use Make the Cut to Print your Own Scrapbooking Paper. I love using these papers- they print nicely and the colours co-ordnate perfectly. I also like not having to go to scrapbook store and buy paper 🙂
For those of you want to see how to assemble I did do up a short video.
NOTE: OMG- I do not run a daycare although sound like I have zillion kids! Its just 8 year old son and his friend in background- next time will do when no one around- apologize for the background noise!!!
Look for more gift boxes and Valentines ideas coming soon.
