3d Paper Unicorn Bow

This bow is perfect for gift wrapping, cutting with felt for a hairbow, or even for the front of a card! The bow can be sized to fit your needs and is compatible with both the 8x12 and 12x12 mats! See my blog for a photo tutorial!  As sized, this bow is approximately 5" wide. 

Here is the tutorial:



1. Cut out your pieces.
2. Adhere the inside ears and the color of the horn in place (leave the bottom base unglued for now). Adhere each bow piece to the back, forming the bow loop.
3. Using a foam adhesive, adhere the center of the bow to the tails piece.
4. Grab your center piece, string through your bottom horn piece.
5. Wrap around the center of the bow then adhere in place.  Adhere horn piece down fully now.
6. Adhere the eyelashes in place.
7. Next, form your flowers.  Use a small skewer (or pencil tip) to curl the petals in then really squish the center, pinching it to hold it in place.  
8. Adhere the small center in the other small flower form.  Squeeze the pieces together to form a shape similar to this.
9. Adhere the flower form inside the largest flower piece. Again, squish together to get the desired shape.
10. Using a foam adhesive, adhere the flower to the center of the bow/horn as shown.
11-12. Repeat for the remaining flowers.

This bow is perfect for gift wrapping, cutting with felt for a hairbow, or even for the front of a card! The bow can be sized to fit your needs and is compatible with both the 8x12 and 12x12 mats! See my blog for a photo tutorial!  As sized, this bow is approximately 3-1/2" wide. 

This bow is perfect for gift wrapping, placing on vases, or even for the front of a card! The bow can be sized to fit your needs and is compatible with both the 8x12 and 12x12 mats! 
1. Cut out all your pieces.  With the fold over bow piece, run the edges over the side of your desk to help round out each of the four sections.  This just helps when folding it later.
2. Flip this cut over and adhere the inside mat then place adhesive on the four tabs and in the center.
3. Fold each of the tabs in, lining up the curves.  Use a strong adhesive!
4. Place a foam adhesive in the center of the bow and on the center of the tails.
5. Wrap the bow center around the bow and adhere in the back.
6. Adhere the bow to the tails!

Milk Carton Boxes

This Milk Carton Box is approximately 4-3/4" x 2-5/8" x 2-5/8" and comes with the one piece box base, the coordinating mats, and the hanging four-leaf clover.  The box is designed so you can easily open and close it after assembly.  The file is compatible with both the 8x12 and 12x12 mats.
Here is the tutorial:
1. Cut out your box base.  Fold on the score lines and add adhesive to the side tab and the three bottom tabs as shown by the white adhesive tape in the image.
2. Turn the box over and add adhesive to the remaining bottom tab and the first top tab on the left side of the score mark (again, shown with white adhesive tape in the image).
3. Adhere the mats in place. Note: This image is missing four small triangular mats.  They go in the first four missing spots (from the left).  The triangles at the end, by the side tab, do not have mats. You can cut extra for those if you like, but they do not show.
4. Next, adhere the side tab to the box side to form its shape.
5. Tuck in the two small tabs on the bottom of the box.
6. Fold down the bottom tab, make sure the adhesive is in the right spot.
7. Fold down the remaining bottom tab and adhere everything together well.
8. Next, fold in the box sides.
9. Adhere the top together in the back using the adhesive you added in step #2.
10. This is what the box looks like flared out.
11. And this is what the box looks like opened.

Fill as desired and then cut the 4 leaf clover out and tie on!

This shamrock bow is perfect for gift wrapping, placing on vases, or even for the front of a card! The bow can be used without the shamrock center too!  It can be sized to fit your needs and is compatible with both the 8x12 and 12x12 mats!

4 Drawer Storage Cube



This 4 drawer storage cube is approximately 3-3/4" x 3-3/4" x 2" with each drawer being approximately 1-3/4" x 1-3/4" x 1-3/4".  There are two drawers in the front and two drawers in the back.  The file comes with four base boxes, four drawer boxes, four slotted mats, two large squares for the top and bottom covers, and two side panels.  The file is layered so be sure to separate out the pieces before cutting.  The file is compatible with both the 8x12 and 12x12 mats and this project can be made larger or smaller depending on your needs!  These can be used horizontally or vertically and can be stacked when creating multiples!  
Here is the tutorial:
BEFORE YOU BEGIN, PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU UNGROUP THE CUT FILE AND SEPERATE OUT THE PIECES. The file comes with four base boxes, four drawer boxes, four slotted mats, two large squares for the top and bottom covers, and two side panels. 

1. Cut out the boxes (you will need four larger and four smaller (these have the ribbon slots).  Place adhesive on the two tabs on each box (shown with white adhesive tape in photo) and then adhere the drawer mat, lining up the slots.  Fold on the score lines.
2. Flip the pieces over and put adhesive on the two flaps shown on each piece.
3. Starting with the large (the base), adhere the box sides to the tabs to form the box shape.
4. Remove the adhesive and fold the two flaps in, this helps keep the box sturdy.
5. Next, grab the drawer piece.  Adhere the back two tabs to the box sides. Not the front side yet!
6. Push your ribbon through the slots carefully as you do not want to break the cardstock between the two. I used 2-1/2" x 5/8" for each drawer and then trimmed a little off after pulling through.  Once you have your ribbon in, form a loop about 1/2" in size for the pull.
7. Your box should look like this now.
8. Adhere the ribbon down (trim if needed) to the box.
9. Adhere the box sides to the tabs and then adhere the flap in as we did with the other piece.
10. Your boxes should look like this image now!
11-12. Insert your drawer into the box.

13. Repeat the above steps until you have four sets.
14. Next we will need to adhere the boxes together.  I do this in two sets.  Place adhesive on the side of one box.
15. Remove your drawers and adhere the two peices together, centering.
16. Repeat for the other two boxes.
17. Place adhesive on the back side of one of the sets.
18. Adhere the sets together so you have two boxes on one side and two on the opposite side.
19. Cut your large square covers and place adhesive on one side of each.
20. Adhere one to the bottom and one to the top.
21. Your project should look like this now.
22. Cut your side panels and place adhesive on the backs of one side of each.
23. Adhere the side panels in place.


You can cut multiples to create large storage units as well!  The sample below shows three sets stacked horizontal (top image) to provide 12 drawers and the bottom image shows 4 units stacked vertically to provide 16 drawers!

Tacos Are My Valentine

This card is 5" x 7" when assembled (A7) and comes with the card base, the card mat (with cut-out hearts and phrase), two mats to change phrase/font color, and the pieces to create the taco!  Be sure to save the inside letters from the card mat cuts to adhere to the center of the letters.  You can use the release compound path to get the hearts and phrase on their own as well!  


Here are some ideas for this file as well!
