Gift Sets and Box and Flower Templates

Hello Friends!!! Lookie! More gift sets. They were purpose driven creations! I have grand plans for them but I don't want to tell you what it is because well, I'm still waiting for a response from someone. I'm hoping it'll work out!

All of the boxes were cut using my Cricut Expression using my Sure Cuts A Lot 2 program. It's a jpeg image rather than svg. I can't upload svg files on Blogger. That is why the SCAL2 program is so fabulous. It cuts jpeg images!!!

I folded the top cover to create as a border around the box but you can create the box with a top cover rather than folding it. If you have a SCAL2 program, use the "trace" feature. I adjusted the width to 11.5" (be sure to click on "keep proportion" when adjusting the size). I also provided the template for those who want to hand cut the template. Be sure to save the file on to your computer by right clicking your mouse and "save image as". Once saved on your computer, resize using your editing program. Do not print the image directly from the Internet. You may need to adjust the size.




Sure Cuts A Lot 2 Template



Hand cute template

For those who are hand cutting the image. Adjust the image size using your photo editing program. . .change the width to 11.5" . . .be sure to keep the proportion so that the length will adjust accordingly. You can print the image on to a 14 x 8.5" paper and trace it to your designer paper or cut a designer paper to 12 x 8.5" but all the lines will print on your designer paper. If you are using card stock. . .adjust the "width" to 10.75". . .or to any size you want so that'll fit on a 8.5 x 11" card stock.
I also cut the butterflies with my Cricut expression. I used the SU sets Dream A Little and A Happy Heart.



I had cut the flowers with my Cricut Expression using SCAL2 as well. I adjusted the sizes in 3 different sizes. Below is the image if you want to try it out.

All I did was layer the flowers and attached them together with a brad. I cut the leaf myself.
Anyway. . .try out the box and the flower. It was really fun to create these gift sets!!

Well, I won't list the recipes. . .my post is already too long!! Hope y'all have a beautiful Wednesday!
