3D Paper Cheeseburger Treat Box | Father's Day Gift for Dad | SVGCuts

While I was working on my last entry for the Father's Day SVG Cut's Facebook Challenge, I had another idea that I thought would make a cute gift for my husband from the kids. He loves cheeseburgers so I thought I could make him a gift box using SVGCuts files

 Here's how it turned out... doesn't it look yummy!

Here is the cheeseburger recipe.... all cooked up with my Cameo, lol!

 I used the cupcake top and the top tier from the cake box to make my hamburger patty and the bottom of the bun. 

I made my cheese layers, using the top of the graduation cap.

From the MY DAY WITH DAD SVG KIT I made the banner.

The bacon strips are a freebie file on the SVGCuts blog, and the sesame seeds were made in the Silhouette Studio DE program. WOW! That's a lot of ingredients!!! Oh yes, to make it taste and look even better I used a green ribbon to make some lettuce and hot glued it to the top of the bun. I also inked some edges and embossed a few things, et voila... Dad's cheeseburger!

I love that it's functional too! It has enough room for some treats and maybe even some love notes from the kids!

You could also make this cheeseburger with two gift compartments by turning the bottom bun into a box as well!

I always love to show you the scale... pretty realistic, almost good enough to eat!

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



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

The panfish is also a freebie from the blog. Man, they have great freebies!

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!

And it all fits inside the gift box!

DIY Home Organization Station | Wall

While I was at Costco the other day I picked up a whiteboard for a Pinterest inspired project I had in mind... I had been wanting to make a home organization station/wall. Here is the project that inspired me to get organized. Click here to see how Tracy made this. 


WARNING! LOTS OF PICS TO COME!
So here is how I started my wall...

DIY Home Organization Station | Wall by ilovedoingallthingscrafty.com

The wall I am referring to and you will see at the end of the post is the wall next to my fridge in my kitchen. On that wall, I did have a very small, sad-looking eraser board. :(  I wished I had taken a picture of the wall before I took it down, oh well.

This whiteboard was way too small for my liking so I thought I would turn it into a corkboard. To do this I just used double-sided tape and attached cork board sheets to it. I did have to trim cork to make it fit all together.

I had to stack 2 layers of cork together, simply because the cork wasn't thick enough... Haha, I guess I shouldn't complain too much I bought it at the Dollar Store, lol!

I then covered the board with some leftover white cotton fabric that I had and secured it with hot glue. I could have left it all white but it just looked so boring so I thought I would paint a frame around it. I used some masking tape to outline the frame.

Using a foam brush and acrylic black paint I painted all around the board, ensuring to pull in the paint from the masking tape. This will prevent the paint from bleeding underneath the tape.

The finished corkboard!

Here is the magnetic whiteboard I picked up at Costco.

I had these desktop calenders that I turned in to a monthly reward chart for my kids. I used my Cameo to cut the words out of vinyl. I adhered these to my new magnetic whiteboard with double-sided tape.

So here is what it looked like before I added all papers to it that was on my fridge...

And here is my wall after I added all our important school/house stuff. Not bad... I'm sure it will get a lot messier soon enough! I wished I had done this earlier on in the school year!!!

Corkboard in use!

Kids' reward chart!


They can earn up to $1 a day, but they can also lose that money for breaking any rules. I minus 20 cents for each broken rule! So far they haven't gone into the negatives... yet!!! 

DIY Home Organization Station | Wall by ilovedoingallthingscrafty.com

I hot glued some clips to the bottom edge for things I have to deal with.

To make the pens stick to the board I cut up a small piece magnetic strip and hot glued it to each cap.

I also added a magnetic strip to the eraser.


The best part is that you can't even see the wall from the kitchen area and my fridge is paper free! 

Hope you like this post and were inspired by it just like I was with Tracy's post! 
Happy crafting!

Hawaiian Barbie Luau Fondant Birthday Cake

Hello everyone! 

Sorry I have been M.I.A. for the last week or so... crazy busy these days with work, house duties and after school activities! 

I am soooo excited to share with you all a cake I finished today. It is for my beautiful God Daughter Aleina's Luau Birthday party this weekend.

Since she loves Barbie, her mom asked me if I could make her a Luau Barbie Cake. Here are some pictures of the cake. I'm so happy with how it turned out! Thanks to Duff from Ace of Cakes, the Cake Boss and even Youtube for inspiring me to experiment with fondant. Everything I have learned about cakes has been through trial and error. I can safely say I've come a very long way from the first cake that I made when my daughter had her first birthday :)

Isn't it pretty?!?
The skirt part of the cake is a white cake and the round bottom layer is half chocolate and half white, all frosted with American buttercream and covered with fondant.
