For my project today I actually used an existing file and just added some hand cut shapes to the front. To show you how you can take a file and use it in so many different ways. This box is the Cupcake Tall Box from SVG Cutting Files I did awhile ago, get it here. I did the base and the background piece from the cut file then I just hand cut some rectangles and used a punch for the border piece and stars and you have a completely different look. I posted the original box below so you can see it.

So sorry I haven't been posting for awhile...but I am in the middle of a move. It is both exhausting and exciting at the same time! We are building a new house and so that has consumed me, literally! Every detail that had to be picked out but it is so nice. We have to be out of our house this saturday but...my new house is not done...so we will be in limbo for about another week, hopefully! So no crafting for a bit more since it is all in boxes.
So these first photos are my old empty craft room I will miss it...I had a little pond and waterfall just outside my windows and so I could open my window and hear it. I will miss that but....wait until you see my new craft room and the views are AMAZING!!!
This is part of the new craft room, as you can see not finished yet but close.
This is where my computer will be and on the other side of the room looks the same, windows and desk area but it will be for my sewing machines. I know they are not very good photos after I get in I will take better ones.

This is a new box from SVG Cutting Files that will be in the store on friday, you can get it here. I just love the swirly frosting and how easy this box was to make. This would be perfect as a party favor to fill with some treats.

I know I say this every month but holy cow time goes by so fast!! It is time for a new monthly challenge at SVG Cutting Files and the theme this month is an Easter Treat. I made two different but kind of the same treat containers. The first is a little bag with the bunny cutout and the second is the box with the bunny cutout. The box has the bunny cutout on all 4 sides. I tied the ribbon on them to look like bunny ears, I thought it was cute.
So make sure to join us for the challenge over at SVG Cutting Files.
You can get the bag here

Okay I cannot take credit for this super cute idea, this was made with my friend Sue (check out her blog here). She is so clever and fun. The envelope opens and it has x and o beads in there to play tic tac toe. LOVE!!!
