Pool Table Gift Box

Pool Table Gift Box

wdsc_4718c-picasa

I haven’t had access to my photography studio (-ok, my son was home for winter break, and I couldn’t use his room/desk!), so it’s been a little while since I’ve been able to share projects.  He’s now back at school, and I moved back in to his room until he come’s home again.

Here’s a fun gift box I made from an svg file from SVGCuts.  It is part of a kit called “The Green Room” which includes projects for anyone who loves throwing darts, shooting pool, playing poker or bowling.  I cut the pieces with my Silhouette electronic die cutting machine and some card stock.  A video tutorial is available to help with the assembly.

The card stock I used is Core’dinations French Roast and Gina K Christmas Pine.  I used an adhesive pearl for the cue ball, although I would prefer it to be whiter so I may keep looking for something different.  The svg file contains circles for the balls, but they do not have detail on them so I found a google image for the rest of the balls and created a “print and cut” file.  Then I used a thin strip of the brown card stock to create height for the rack (as you would when quilling).

The cue stick had visible score lines when it was folded, so I inked the edges with some Gina K Dark Chocolate ink.

The box is a pretty nice size for small gifts and treats. (It is 4″ x 6″ on the bottom and 2″ deep, and it gets slightly wider toward the top).

Slot Machine Gift Box

Slot Machine Box wzDSC_4423.jpg

This fun gift box was made from a file called “Lucky 7’s Slot Machine” which could be purchased separately or as part of a set called “Vegas Road Trip SVG Bundle” by Dreaming Tree (3dsvg.com).  A video tutorial is provided which makes assembly a breeze.

The card stock I used is white, Bazzill Plumberry, and the front and back of card stock called Dartboard (item: 12-101) by Kite Tails designs..  The file includes a pdf of the images in the windows which could be printed on plain paper or card stock and hand-cut.  The “arm” is attached with a brad so it can be pulled like on a real slot machine.

Nativity Coasters

These coasters were made with Premier Decor 4×4 Ivory Travertine tiles I purchased at Home Depot.

The Holy Family image (lower left) is by Inkadinkado (stamp #99629), and the Mother and Child and greeting images (upper right) are from the “Christmas Joy” set by Gina K Designs.  Stazon Timber Brown ink was used on both designs to stamp the images and ink the edges.  Each set contains 4 tiles.

I cut squares of cork , ran them through my Xyron sticker machine, and adhered them to the bottoms of the tiles so they would not scratch the table when used.

The box with a clear panel in the lid was adapted from a file called “Square Flat Photo Box” from the “Classic Gift Boxes SVG Kit” by SVGCuts.  The pieces were cut from Recollections Kraft card stock and acetate with my Silhouette electronic die cutting machine.

Patriotic Snowman Ornament

Patriotic Snowman Ornamentpatriotic-snowman-ornament-zdsc-4018

Here is one more ornament for the “2016 RubberHedgehog Ornament Challenge” which is going on until November 30, 2016. (HERE is this year’s gallery, and HERE are the 2015 submissions and winners.) Pop on over and check it out!

Any stamps used on the ornaments for the challenge must be by RubberHedgehog, and the stamp I used for this project is “Medium Patriotic American Snowman Rubber Stamp, With Flag” (Item: J-1402).

The 3D star was adapted from a file from the “Happy 4th” svg kit from SVGCuts.  The original file is a star-shaped lantern with an open top.  I closed it up which required creating new side panels.

The card stock and paper I used for the star was open stock “Dark Grey (item #991646) and The Paper Studio “Crackled Stars” (665976) from Hobby Lobby, and the red was from the DCWV  Double-Sided Patterns pack (0S-034-00039).

The image was stamped on the plain wood-grained portion of The Paper Studio “Light Bulb Strands” (1284082) printed paper with Gina K Charcoal Brown ink and colored with Copic Markers (R59/E18, B95, B97, E40, E41, E42, E43, E44, E47, Yr27, and the colorless blender).

20 gauge “gun metal” wire by Bead Landing was used as the hanger.

Here is another ornament for the “2016 RubberHedgehog Ornament Challenge” which is going on until November 30, 2016. (HERE is this year’s gallery, and HERE are the 2015 submissions and winners.) Pop on over and check it out!

Any stamps used on the ornaments for the challenge must be by RubberHedgehog, and the stamp I used for this project is “Christmas Tree Cat” (item: K-10204).

I created a die cut for this image with my Silhouette electronic die cutting machine.  The image was stamped on the die cut (white card stock) with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic Markers (G28, R59, YR24, YR27, and E44) and a Sakura glitter pen.  The colored die cut image was then adhered to a piece of patterned paper from the “Signature Christmas” 6×6 designer paper pad by My Minds Eye.

The window, shutters and flower box were created with dies by Poppystamps, Inc.  (Small Madison Window, style no. 816; Small Madison Window Shutter, style no. 833; and Small Flower Box, style no. 823) and my Cuttlebug.  A piece of acetate was adhered behind the window and all these pieces were popped up with Scotch foam mounting tape.

The circle panels were cut with two dies from the We R Memory Keepers Nesting Circles die set, and the smaller one was embossed with the Spellbinders M-Bossabilities Bricks and Bark (EL-015) embossing folder (discontinued?).

The Poinsettia was cut with my Silhouette using a file from the “3D Wintergreens” SVG Kit by SVGCuts.

Card stock used was Recollections heavy weight ivory, Gina K Designs Christmas Pine, and a scrap of red I believe came from a value pack from AC Moore.  Gold “Celebrate It” wire edged ribbon (#18634) from Michaels was also used.
