Hi all!

I had an email request from Linda for a Matchbox cut file to be made into Advent Calendars so that’s what I have for you today, I even had a bash at making an Advent Calendar myself…hmm not sure that I pulled it off ;) I’ve also added a template version of the Matchbox if you don’t have an electronic cutting machine or wish to cut one out with scissors or a craft knife.

I made a couple of larger Matchboxes and I really like being able to have the box in one colour and the sleeve in a completely different colour or pattern, its not an effect you can easily achieve with other styles of box so I’ll be putting this cut file to plenty of use. I cut my boxes out of some white core card, if you don’t like being able to see the white peeking through the dash lines you can use some solid core card.

Hiyah!

Today I bring you a Cut File with a set of Christmas Crackers, you get a  choice of 3 different edges, a straight edge, a zig-zag edge and a scalloped edge. I also have the straight edge and zig-zag edge versions for you as templates, simply print onto the reverse side of your chosen paper and cut along the solid lines with your scissors or craft knife and fold along the dashed lines. You could fill them with wrapped chocolates or you could personalise each Cracker with a name on the outside and a stocking filler inside, anything goes really…as long as it fits inside ;)

I chose the scalloped edge version for my Cracker today, the paper I picked was very thin so I also cut a card layer to make the finished Cracker much more sturdy. I folded all of the score lines (dashed lines) then rolled up the Cracker and overlapped one of the sections and stuck into place with double sided tape, this leaves you with a Hexagonal (6 sided) Cracker. I cut a couple of Snowflakes from here and here, I covered one with glitter then layered with 3D foam pads and added some gems and popped onto the middle of the Cracker. While I had the glitter out I added a strip of double sided tape to the ends of the Cracker just inside the scallops and covered with the clear glitter. I closed the ends up with some seam binding and tied into a bow then added some more gems because you can’t have too much glitter or sparkle at Christmas.

Hi There!

I have a jigsaw with more pieces as promised, this time with 16 pieces for slightly older children and as with the 9 piece Jigsaw in my last post you have a cut file version with a printable template version if you fancy hand cutting it. I made another magnetic Jigsaw for my example but they would also be great made of card.

I printed my photograph onto my magnetic sheet then cut a practice jigsaw and laid my image face down in the same spot for perfect placement. I cut my jigsaw 3 times on double cut to ensure that the sheet had cut all of the way through as the magnetic sheets I have are thicker than card stock. I finished a couple of points with a craft knife that hadn’t cut right through and popped it straight onto my fridge :)
