Year End Teacher 3D Shaped Paper Gifts | SVGCuts

Hello Everyone! 

Have you missed me? I've been away on a few trips since my last post, for those that follow me on Instagram you all know where I have been ;) Check it out if you already haven't! (Click on the Instagram Button on the Side Bar)

Anyways, on to today's post... Year-end Teacher gifts! Can you believe it? Another year has just flown by... still feels like my kids just started school yesterday! Hopefully, summer won't feel like it flies by too!

To thank the teachers at the end of the year I always like to make them something to remember my kids by! Both my kids have loved having their teachers this year and they truly are fantastic people! This is the least I could do to thank them :)

For my daughter's Teacher here is a 3D Apple Box... at least this apple will last forever! Is it not just the cutest thing?! Thanks for a great year Mrs. O!

SVG Cuts files,treats,3D apple,#SVGCuts,Silhouette Cameo,containers,teacher gifts for Year End,3D Soccer Ball,Thank You Teacher Cards,

The files used for this apple comes from SVG Cuts Miss Baker's Classroom SVG Kit and Miss Karen's Back to School Bags SVG Kit.

Here is the open Apple. Perfect for some treats!


Here is the 3D Soccer Ball made for my son's Teacher! My son says he is a huge Soccer Fan! Plus it's perfect for the FIFA World Cup games going on right now! GO Team Portugal! Thanks for everything, Mr. V!!!


Here is the open Soccer Ball! Again, a great little treat box!

The files for this 3D Soccer Ball come from SVGCuts Fun and Games SVG Kit. Super easy and quick to put together too!

And lastly, a few Thank You Cards! This card comes from Back to the Books SVG Kit. If you are looking to make teacher gifts now or for when the kids start back to school again, make sure you stop by SVGCuts for tons of School project ideas. 

Hope these projects have inspired you for the next time you are needing a Teacher's Gift!

A Beary Happy Father's Day Box Card | SVGCuts

Hello Everyone!

With Father's Day around the corner, I wanted to share with you my latest SVG Cuts DT project...
A Beary Happy Father's Day Box Card! The perfect card for the Outdoorsy Dad!

For exact measurements and directions on how I made this box card click HERE!
Below is a list of all the SVG Cuts kits I used to create this card.

 Box Cards SVG Kit
Camp Firefly SVG Kit
Camp Smore SVG Kit
Forest County SVG Collection

The sentiment was created using the Print n Cut on the Silhouette Cameo.

Here is a side view of the card.
Boy, these are very modern Bears...check out their trailer, LOL!

I really love how these Box Cards create a scene.

And on the backside of the card, a little note for Dad. This card can't get any cooler!

Hope this has inspired you to create your own Father's Day Box Card. Make it as simple or as complex as the Dad in your life!

Thanks for stopping by!

Jon and Vanessa's Wedding Box Card | SVGCuts

This weekend we have a wedding to go to, so for the new couple, I just had to make a personalized Wedding Card. Happy to say I am very pleased with how it turned out, hope they will be too!

For those interested, here are the SVG Cut's Kits I used to make the card:

Card Base and label - Box Cards SVG Kit
Rings and Cake - Love Always SVG Kit 
NOTE: (Plain band was created (altered) by removing the diamond from the diamond ring. To do that use the node/point function and delete the nodes/points you do not want)

The sentiment was created on the Silhouette Cameo using the Print n Cut Function.

Hope you like my take on another Wedding Card using SVGCuts files, maybe even inspired to create a similar box card for an upcoming wedding you may be attending!

Thanks for stopping by!

3D Paper Rocket Ship Gift Box

The day I made this 3D Rocketship I began with the plan of creating a simple Birthday Card. Somewhere along the way the card turned into this Rocket Ship. Totally cool with me as I was happy with the results and hopefully the Birthday Boy was too!

The file for the Rocket Ship comes from Fleurette Blooms Outer Limits - Space 3D SVG Kit. I have been wanting to make this for a while, maybe that explains my change in direction!

Check out the little Alien at the window, SO cute! (Well for an Alien I anyways)

The Space Ship is perfect for storing little treats or a giftcards for the Birthday Boy. This would also make a cool decoration or centerpiece for a Boy's Birthday Party!

Thanks for stopping by, hope you liked my 3D Rocket Ship. If you make one of these don't forget to share it on Fleurette Bloom's FB page!

Happy Crafting Everyone :)

Paper Tropical Fish Aquarium | 3D Paper Decoration | SVGCuts

I am SO super excited to share with you my latest SVG Cuts project! Check out my paper Tropical Fish Aquarium, I think this has to be one my favorite SVG Cuts project so far. Isn't this just the coolest Fish Tank you have ever seen!?!

Filled with tropical paper fish that will never die if you forget to feed them, and even better yet you will never have to change the stinky water or ever clean it! How more perfect could it get?!?

For those of you interested in recreating the Aquarium here are the SVG Kits that you will need:

For the exact instructions and measurements, click HERE.

The COOLEST part is that the aquarium actually lights up! YES, it sure does!
Making this the wickedest (if that is even a word) night light for kids :) My only problem now is that I have to find time to make another one as I have two kids and only one aquarium, LOL!

Here are the battery-operated LEDs tucked secretly under the lid! Clever huh?!? 

Hope I have inspired you to create your own LOW/No maintenance aquarium. This project would make a great gift for the classroom, the office, or for your kid's room! 

Thanks for stopping by!

Nurse's Week Cake - Happy Birthday Florence Nightingale | DIY Cakes

Happy Nurse's Week to all my fellow Nurses!

Many of you may not know this, but when I'm not crafting I'm probably working at the Cross Cancer Institute. I have been an RN there for over 16 years, and have loved every minute of it. My patients and coworkers have made that possible, truly they are simply the best! 

I was honored to be asked by our Local CCI Union Reps to make a cake for this week's festivities. Here is the cake I came up with for the occasion! The theme for the event was Florence Nightingale's Birthday.  I'm so happy with how it all came together.

The red symbol on the front of the cake is our Union's logo - UNA (United Nurses of Alberta)

Nurse's Week Cake - Happy Birthday Florence Nightingale | DIY Cakes

Since this cake is in honor of Florence Nightingale's Birthday, I thought it would be cute to incorporate her throughout the cake.

Happy to see Ms. Nightingale takes her calcium, LOL!

Unfortunately, it looks like she may be a Cancer patient,  poor Flo!
At 194 years old, it was bound to happen!
(All the patients at our hospital receive a red card)

Nurse's Week Cake - Happy Birthday Florence Nightingale | DIY Cakes

This cake measures, approx 14" in height. 
The bottom layer is an 11" round almond flavored white cake the top a 10" round chocolate cake. 
The entire cake was frosted with vanilla buttercream icing, covered and decorated with fondant.

Here is some more close up pics of the details on the cake.
