Exploding Boxes with Shopping Cart

Sometimes it is not easy to find an idea for a present. In such a case, you might give away a gift of money. But the question is how to package it? My idea was to create exploding boxes with a shopping cart.
For the shopping cart I developped once again a file for Cutting Machines (.studio3 and .svg – you find them here in my shop).
I’m sure you are curious about my finished work, so please have a look at following photos: I have also worked out a second color variation: Which color combination do you like more? I would be pleased if you tell me that in the comments.

Thanks for visiting my blog – I hope you will come back here soon!

Cutting files: Rocking Horses and Miniature Toys

For my customer orders I needed new exploding boxes for christening. Therefore, I had to work out a new motive for my cutting machine. I decided to create a rocking horse and in addition some miniature toys as further decoration.
Both cutting files are available in our online shop (here you find the rocking horse, and here you find the miniature toys).

For the rocking horse I created again a video where you can watch how to glue the parts together:
I also want to show you how the finished exploding boxes look like: Continue reading Cutting files: Rocking Horses and Miniature Toys

Grand Piano created with Cutting Machine

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!

Bavarian Dirndl – Cutting File and Digital Paper

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!

Rows of Houses made of Paper

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!

Hot Air Ballons made out of Paper

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!
