Graduation Cards!

Good morning!  Today I am sharing two new graduation cards!

First up is my new Graduation Announcement Card which can also double as a gift card holder! This card is designed to hold a wallet photo to act as an announcement or it can hold a standard gift card to give as a gift as shown in the photo.  The file comes with the A2 base to create a 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" card, the mat with the holder cuts, the Class of sentiment, a graduation hat which is optional, and three years (2014, 2015, and 2016).


And of course, every graduate will need Thank You cards!
This graduation thank you card goes together quickly making it perfect for mass production!
The file comes with the A2 base to create a 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" card, the Thank You swirl sentiment and an additional graduation hat to change the color if desired.

Print and Cut Hippo!

Good Morning!  Today I am going to walk you through the Print and Cut Hippo!
This cutie-patootie comes all colored up and has two layers that you can pop up to give her more life!  She can be sized to fit your needs and is perfect for so many projects! 

Once you have the file in your software, click on the "Page Tool Window", it is the fourth icon from the right on the top bar.  Select the paper size you will be printing on.  I changed mine to Letter to print on 8-1/2" x 11.  

Next click on the "Registration Window" icon (second from right) and click the "Show Reg Marks" box.  Position your cuts within the registration mark areas.

Click on the Send to Silhouette Icon (sixth icon from the left) then click the link to print.

Follow the instruction on the screen...

Align your paper on your mat matching how it is displayed on your computer (make sure the arrow is pointing up when placing your paper).  

Load your paper then click on the Detect Automatically link and your machine will scan for the registration marks.

Once it has found the markings…it will say: 
 Click Cut.
Remove your pieces from your mat.

Place foam on the back of the nose and skirt pieces.

Adhere the pieces on the main image.
Super easy, right!?
Now she is ready to be placed on your project!

3D Princess Mirror Box

This 3D Princess MirrorBox coordinates with my other princess items!  The finished project as it comes sized is approximately 10" x 5" x 1” and is compatible with both the 8x12 and 12x12 mats and can be sized to fit your needs!  The box is open at the top of the mirror making it perfect for party favors!


Here is the tutorial:
1.  Cut all the pieces and fold on all the score lines.  Adhere the tab to the one end of the other strip to form one long strip as shown.
2.  Begin adhering the strip off one side, lining up the edges as you go.
3.  Continue forming the strip to the mirror edge adhering the tabs.
4.  Your mirror should look similar to this now.
5.  Place adhesive along the edges of your second mirror piece (or on the tabs) and adhere it in place, starting with the handle.
6.  Finish adhering the tabs against the mirror.  I used a pencil inside the box to push the tabs against the mirror backing to secure.
7.  Place the detail pieces on each side of the mirror.  Make sure to line up the hearts before gluing in place :)  Place jewels and ribbon on as desired!

3D Princess Crown









What little princess wouldn't want her own crown?  This 3D Princess Crown is adjustable in size and is compatible with the 8x12 and 12x12 mats.  The file comes with the two crown base pieces, the detail crown cut, the front mat, and the princess sentiment cut.  These go together really quickly making them perfect for parties!  You could even put the guest names on the front panels instead of the princess.



Here is the tutorial:
1.  Cut out your pieces.  Layer the detail cut on the main crown piece.  Do not adhere the left side (near the slots) down just yet.
2.  Join in the second piece in one of the slots.  Finish adhering the detail piece in place.
3.  Join the other end of the crown to form the headband.
4.  Adhere the mat cut and princess sentiment in place.

...and of course if you have a crown, you need a wand, right!?
This 3D Princess Wand coordinates with the crown and even has room for ribbons!
The finished project as it comes sized is approximately 11" x 5-1/2" and it comes with the wand stem, two detail cut pieces, one slider piece (which includes room for ribbon/twine), and two backing cuts.  The file is compatible with both the 8x12 and 12x12 mats and can be sized to fit your needs!  
and Pink Basis Card Stock in 80# weight.  I added ribbon and twine as well as pink jewels.

Here is the tutorial:
1.  Cut out all your pieces in your desired papers.
2.  Adhere the detail cut on the two backing mats (do not use the slider mat yet).
3.  Grab your wand stem square and place a strong adhesive on one corner and place your skewer/pencil in the opposite corner as shown.
4.  Roll your paper toward your adhesive corner.  Remove your skewer/pencil.
5.  Cut the bottom of one end so it is level.  This will be the bottom of the wand stem.
6.  Push the pointed/top end of your stem through the slider mat as shown.
7.  Place foam adhesive squares on the slider piece, adhering the pointed piece down.
8.  Tie on your ribbons using the slots.
9.  Your wand should look like this now.
10. Adhere your detail/mat piece in place, lining up all the edges.
11. Turn your wand over and add more foam adhesive squares.
12. Adhere your remaining detail/mat piece in place.
13. Your wand will look like this now.
14. (and like this...hehe, I have an extra photo in my tutorial!)
