Monkey Themed Baby Shower 3D Letters and Banner

Happy weekend everyone! 

So today I am going to share a project with you that I made for my friend Kristina. Her sister recently had a baby boy and she is throwing her a "little monkey" themed baby shower.

The banner was created with basic shapes from the SCAL library and cut with the Silhouette Cameo. The bottom layer is an elongated triangle with a scalloped edge, topped off with another rounded corner triangle. I made the rosette by using my Martha Stewart scoring board. For each rosette, I used two 1.5" x 12" piece of paper the scored the paper every 0.25". Folded the paper like an accordion, then glue the ends to each other. To cover the center of the rosette I used just a simple white circle. The font that I chose for the letters was Arial Black. If you would like the SVG file for the banner, email me and I will gladly send it to you.

These paper 3D letters stand about 6.5" tall. They were filled with some dried beans to keep them from toppling over. The 3D letters are from SVG Cuts 3D letter kit and so is the hanging little monkey (freebie on their blog). I had so much fun making this and love how it turned out. I can't wait to make some more 3D letters!

Heart Shaped Favor Boxes

Hello and hope everybody had a great weekend. Here in Edmonton, we celebrated Family Day long weekend! A fun time to do things with family, and even get some crafting done :)

Last week I was asked to help the make treat boxes for the upcoming Scrapbook Tea Party at my children's school for all the Kindergarten students.  My daughter is in Kindergarten this year and is so looking forward to that afternoon. She can't wait to show us her scrapbook filled with all her artwork and projects... I think she got my creative gene :)

The file I used came from "Loves little surprises" theme set from ScrappingTable.com (Sorry this file no longer exists for download :( )


I cut them out, scored the lines with my Martha Stewart scoring board, and glued down the corner of the box. Here's is what they started off like...

Time to fill them up... I'll let the Scrapbook Committee deal with that ;)

And here is what they will look like once they are closed up. Done in white, I think this would make an awesome treat box for someone's wedding!
