Little C's - The Greeting Farm Release, Stamp Giveaway and Templates!

Hi Friends! Before I begin. . .just a warning this post will be long because there are lots of things going on! LOL! I'll go straight to business. . .first of all Jen the owner of Pieces of Me is having a prize giveaway to celebrate the Greeting Farm stamp release at Little C's. Stop by and check out what is going on at her site.

All the Greeting Farm images on my projects are sold at Little C's. sure to grab them while they are still available. For the first box, I used a template that I posted a few weeks ago. Click Here for the template.

I colored all the images using my Copic Markers so I'll just say it once. . .:)

Please read. . .do not print the templates directly from the Internet. I'm not sure how large it'll print! Save the template by clicking on the photo, right click and "save image". Resize the template using your photo editor before printing or SCAL2 program if using a Cricut Machine.

With this star box, I used the templates below.

Sure Cuts A Lot 2 Templates

Sorry I have no hand cut template for this project. When I have a chance, I'll see if I can create one.

Quickie instructions:

  • When cutting the template using SCAL2, upload using the autotrace feature.
  • Adjust the size of the box as desired and to fit the star appropriately, measure the width and height of the box when you've assembled it before cutting the star. Adjust the "width" and "height" of the star on SCAL2 based on your box measurement so that it'll fit nicely in front of the box.
  • Measure the depth of the box (side of the box) and cut a strip of designer paper at 12" and the depth of the box to create the handle

I didn't create a hand cut template because the shape is too complicated to cut by hand.

SCAL2 Template

Hand Cut Template

For those cutting with the SCAL2 template, follow the scoreline of the hand cut template. It's approximately 1/4" from the edge of the center panel and score on all outer panels.

Create a card based on the size of your envelope.

If any parts of this post or instructions don't make any sense to you, please feel free to email me. LOL!

Hope y'all have a beautiful weekend!
