Hi Everyone:

Anita here with an adorable box card from Lori's wonderful assortment of cards in her store.  It is called Box Card Toaster (SVG, Silhouette).  I'll bet you have at least one person in your life who you would be toast without.  I made two cards and sent them off to two special ladies.  I added a layer for peanut butter and jelly.  The card folds flat for mailing and is just so cute.

Box Card Tractor Tutorial

Anita here with a fun card tutorial to put together Lori's Box Card Tractor (SVG, Silhouette).  I made this for my grandson and used John Deere type colors as my inspiration.

Here are the pieces that I cut.  Because I wanted my tractor to be yellow and green I cut extra pieces of the inner part of the box card with the seat and the engine and also the end covering pieces.  I then trimmed them to fit and glued them on.

 I folded the grey tractor card base on the score lines and glued the tab in place.  I then put the tires together.

This photo shows how I put on the extra piece on the insert that goes in the middle of the card.

Here is a photo of the card lying flat all ready to be mailed off.  

Thanks for looking and have a great day.

Lori Whitlock Bunny Head Box Tutorial

 

Anita here with a tutorial to make Lori's Bunny Head Box.  You can find the files here (SVG, Silhouette).  I used some of Lori's Echo Park Paper collections for this box including Wish Upon a Star and Celebrate Spring.  I am going to make these to give to each person who comes for Easter dinner.  They will look so cute on my table and will be filled with yummy sweets.

Here is a photo of the pieces that you need to cut out for this box.

The next photo shows the face and ear pieces glued on as well as the direction the score lines need to be folded.

This photo shows the sides of the box glued together which was the first step in putting the box together.

After the sides are glued together the insert hexagon piece gets glued in to cover up the tabs that were visible when you glued the sides to the bottom of the box.

Lastly you can see how cute the box looks with a little Easter grass in it and some chocolate.

This went together quickly and easily.  Hope that you have a chance to try this one out.  Be sure to look at all of Lori's SVG files for your Spring celebration needs.  That's it for me today.

Hugs,

Happy Birthday Pop Up Presents Card Tutorial

 

Hello Everyone:

Anita here with a tutorial for assembling Lori's new Happy Birthday Pop Up Presents Card (SVG, Silhouette).  I used one of Lori's new Echo Park Paper lines called Birthday Girl.  This card is so fun and pretty easy to put together.

There are two print and cut parts to the this card, the base and the card front as you can see from above as well as all the other parts of the file.

The first thing that you are going to do is glue the inner part of the card to the outer card.  Center the inner card and glue down.

The second thing you are going to want to do is fold your present pieces like this with a mountain fold and the tabs on either end are folded in.

Next I laid out my present pieces and lined up the center score marks on the presents with the center score mark on my card.  I made sure that the presents fit together closely but did not overlap as they won't pop up if you don't.  I counted over two score marks to line up my first present. 

You can see the first present glued into the card here.

Here you can see two of the presents are glued into the card.  I worked on the card when it was open flat and made sure that everything was lined up as I glued each tab onto the card base.

Here is the front view of the two presents glued in so that you can see how close I put them to each other.

Here is my last photo with all three presents glued into the card and the ribbon paper pieces attached.  Add the balloons to the front of the card and inside the card and you are done.  

That's it for me today.

Hugs,
