3D Paper Log Cabin and Boat Treat Boxes | Father's Day SVGCuts Challenge Entry | Dad's Cabin

 For the last few weeks, I have been working on my Father's Day project for SVG Cut's Facebook Challenge. I finally finished it today. Yea!!!  Isn't it so, so, so cute! I just love how it all came together :) All the files were cut using my Cameo.

For the cabin, I used the  PEONY COTTAGE SVG KIT

First I embossed the shingles and used a pen to curl them up before I glued them down to the roof.

Dad peeking through the window comes from  KATE'S SILHOUETTES SVG COLLECTION
For the log look that I created for the cabin, I simply crumpled up some card stock and then scored and inked it. I then used my hot glue gun to adhere to the sides of the box.

The chimney I added comes from the SCHOOL DAYS SVG KIT

The dock was created with the files from the crate from the CARAMEL APPLE PIE SVG KIT. For the lantern, I used the CRISP DAYS OF FALL SVG KIT, and simply glued it onto a wooden dowel.

So since I didn't have a boat file, I made one up using the Silhouette Design Studio Edition software. I needed it to carry all of Dad's fishing gear! For his tackle box, I used the toolbox file from MY DAY WITH DAD SVG KIT

Dad's fishing vest, oars, fishing fly and waves are all freebies from the SVG Cuts blog... thanks, Mary!

The lifebuoy I created as well with basic shapes with the Silhouette SDE. The banner also comes from MY DAY WITH DAD SVG KIT

To make my fishing rod I used masking tape for the handle and wound the fishing line around the wire, then glued the fishing fly to the end. Easy!

Here is a picture to show you the scale. So tiny, but soooo cute! It is definitely is hard to make files this small!!!

I feel like a GIANT holding a tiny little boat in my hand, lol!
