Wood etched wooden spoons - Personalized with Silhouette Cameo

Happy Monday!



Although Mother's Day is long gone this a  great idea if you have not yet celebrated it or for birthdays, house warming, etc... I loved doing this project and had lots of fun.

Recipe

Vinyl
Woodburning pen
Silhouette Cameo
Wooden spoon

Instructions

Write the name you want to etch and cut it out of Vinyl being careful to leave some space all around as you will be using the negative part. Meaning, you will be weeding the parts you normally use and using the left over vinyl. This will create your vinyl stencil. If you are using strong good quality vinyl you are in luck....if not (and I used $1 adhesive sheets from the dollar store) just take care to pick up all the pieces and try to glue them onto the spoon. This will particularly tricky since the adhesive part will try to peal off from the wood but with some patience and a light touch, try to get your stencil positioned onto the handle of the spoon. Finally, fill in the stencil part with a sharpie or marker (sharpies work best). Peal the entire stencil off. You are now ready to trace using the woodburning pen.



Join me later this week as we do some scrapbook layout pages!

Graduation Cap Box

Hello Saturday!!

I am rejoining the land of the living youtubers (so cyber living?) and have a project to share with you and a video tutorial for the project.


Recipe


  • (3) black 8.5" x 11"
  • Ribbon
  • Colored cardstock for sentiment
  • Button
  • Stapler
  • Score tape

File

https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B56Xjs5VDKfkbTY2QzFnUm5PdXc/edit?usp=sharing

Instructions

I traced the bottom part of the box from a file I found online so I ended up taking that part out of the digi file, but everything else you need to make the box is there. Also, as long as you can find a pizza square box and have the inside shaped to about 5.1" x 5.1" you will be able to recreate the box. Remember the flap sides are about 1.5".

Teapot card - Quick share

Hi all!



I know it has been a LONG while. The past few months have been nutty! As the summer creeps around the corner (yes, I do mean creep, its crazy how quickly time is flying by) I will be back with more time to craft, share and be active. Thank you for your patience in the meantime!

Today I am sharing a project that did not make it to video. So, here is a good reason why to subscribe to my various mediums. I try to be equal-opportunity-social-mediastic (wow...Webster ain't got nothing on me!), but sometimes in the rush to get projects turned around I don't get to film it or blog about them. Also, I have and intend to remain highly active on Pinterest throughout the year. So, if you want to join in the fun head to pinterest.com/lepaperstudio and subscribe! I mostly post free svg files, paper crafting projects: cards, scrapbook pages, paper boxes/bags/embellishments, invitations, fonts and occasionally I post fashion looks and funny quotes (mostly PG).

Phew...I am on a rambling rant today...Ok, so onto the project:

Recipe


  • Love You a Latte Cartridge
  • Flower Shoppe Cartridge
  • Martha Stewart Vine punch
  • Gold cardstock from cutcardstock.com
  • Embossing Folder: Cuttlebug's Textile Textures

Instructions

I got the teapot from Cricut's Love  You a Latter Lite Cartridge (I LOVE THIS CARTRIDGE!) there are 4 different teapots! The flowers I cut from the Flower Shoppe cartridge, and I used the poinsettia flower approach (go to my Christmas cards/videos for a tutorial and links to the original tutorial). Because of the size of the teapot (roughly 3.5" wide by 2.75" tall) I had to make them super tiny.
