Some of our customers want to have exploding boxes in rather large sizes. The difficulty then is to fill in the motif inside the box, so that the finished work looks very good. Such a box in large size was recently wished with a bicycle. At the same time it was necessary to size up the motive. I decided to install a park bench in addition into the box for this purpose. So I have developed a corresponding cutting machine file, which is now available in our online-shop. Furthermore, I have designed the side walls with landscapes, which were also produced with cutting machine.
But take a look just now how my finished box looks like:I hope you enjoyed my today’s blog post and I would be glad if you leave me a comment on how you like my work!
Thanks for stopping by and have a nice weekend!
I’m very happy that today I participate in the current Colour Combo BlogHop.
The task was to create a paper project with the Stampin’Up! colors Night of Navy, Balmy Blue and Petal Pink.
Since I am invited to a birthday party coming Saturday, I took this opportunity to design a special gift bag with these colors.
The result of my crafting activity you can see on following photo:The idea for this packaging I had when I worked out one of my recent workshops. If you want to create such a bag yourself then you need a Stampin’Up! giftbag punchbaord.
I have prepared a sheet with dimensions and crafting instructions (you can find this sheet here in my online-shop for free).
In addition I made a crafting video in which you can see my work step by step.
Following tools/products of Stampin’Up! I used for crafting this bag:
Giftbag Punchoard (135862), Botanical Bliss Bundle (148333, in German it is No. 148336) and of course paper, inkpads and ribbon in the regarding colors.
I hope you like my birthday giftbag and wish you a lot of joy, if you make this bag yourself!
Now I’m curious to see what Lisa Kmiec from the US will share with us.

Do you know someone who plays the piano? If so, then it would be a great idea to surprise him or her with a homemade piano made of paper!
We have developed a cutting machine file that can be used to cut the piano parts in the video below.
Such a piano can be of course cut in other colors. I made a black one for the following exploding box:But I also like the red version very much!I hope you enjoy working with my piano cutting files. I hope you visit my blog again soon – bye for now!
Have you ever been on the Oktoberfest in Munich? If so, then you will have noticed that the Bavarian Dirndl is a very popular clothing in this event.
I think that the Dirndl is also a nice decoration element when scrapbooking and making cards or other paper projects. That’s why I designed a cutting plotter file that you can use to make dirndl dresses out of paper.I also created a short video, where you can watch how I glue the paper pieces of the Dirndl together:
For the aprons of my Dirndls I used digital paper which I specially created for Bavarian themed paper crafting purposes.I hope you like my cutting machine Dirndls and/or my Bavarian Dirndl themed digital paper!
I wish you a great paper crafting week and look forward to see you next time in my blog!
Today we started to offer digital design paper for self-printing in our Online-Shop. Our first item in this category is a compilation of design paper with cupcakes and stripes. The colors of these papers are very soft pastel tones.
Please look at following photo what I created with them after printing:One note: You can print a design with cupcakes on the front of a sheet and a design with stripes on the back of same sheet – so it is possible to create very nice envelopes or boxes like to see in my above photo.
My today’s paper craft project is done in almost no time. It is a row of houses and I created them in 3 different color variations.
The parts for the houses rows got cut with a cutting machine. I used my Silhouette Cameo for that, but in addition I created also .svg-files of this project. So it is possible, that owners of other cutting machine brands, e.g. Brother ScanNCut, can work with this files. You find the cutting files here in our Online Shop.
Please take also a look at following video, where you can see how I glued the parts for the houses rows together:
And here are some photos of my houses rows:I hope you like my crafting idea!
Today we go “off to the skies” with our latest cutting machine files! With the help of these files we can create really great hot air balloons out of paper. Usable are these e.g. in exploding boxes – but they are also a very nice gift completely without a box. Alternatively, you can draw a thread at the top of the balloons, so you can hang the balloons as well.
This download files are now available here in our online shop. And it is also very new that this time not only .studio3 files are included, there are also the formats .svg and .pdf included. Thus, these files can also be used for all those cutting machine devices that support these file formats.
Incidentally, we will gradually expand our older cutting machine files to these additional file formats – I hope that the owners of other cutting machine brands will be happy about it! 🙂
Now let’s take a look at a photo with some of these hot air balloons:
The production of such a balloon can be seen in the following video:
In addition I want to give you a small note to the video: After multiple production of such balloons, I came to the conclusion that it is not absolutely necessary to wrap the thread around the outer ring (to see towards the end of the video). If the balloon is already well formed during manufacture, you can either completely do it without the thread or you can use the thread for hanging up the balloon.
And now I wish you a lot of pleasure in creating such hot air balloons with our download files!
I love guitars and sometimes I play guitar or bass guitar together with my family (my two sons and my husband play also musical instruments for a hobby).
I created some guitars out of paper and I’m very happy with this adorable result:The cutting file for guitar and stool is available here in our Online Shop.
I also created a video where I show how to glue the parts of the guitar together. Please excuse my bad accent when I’m speaking…
