Shadow Box Video Tutorials

It has been a long time coming but finally.......I put aside the time to learn how to make video tutorials. To date I have completed three.  The first was a little one for a simple project for Valentine's Day.  Check out this tutorial on the Cube Heart Shadow Box. This shadow box can folded flat and be mailed!

Then I got brave and created a video (well actually four) of the steps for assembling my new Heart Tree Star Shadow Box. This is the most complex paper crafting project I have designed but it has some neat engineering in it to help others also create it....and that is so much easier to demonstrate in a video.

An exciting special note on this video is that it also applies to the Deer in the Forest and the Horses in the Pasture Star Shadow boxes. I used the same techniques in all three.

And, although the timing is certainly a little late, I just uploaded the video tutorial for the Star Nativity Shadow Box as well. Maybe you are inspired to start prepping for next Christmas!

Christmas Crafting Time is Here!

Christmas crafting comes a little early to my craft room because I have to get designs out for others to make in time for their holiday decorating.  I have just released the cutting files for 3 new tree ornaments. These are loosely inspired but Polish Folk art. There are 3 different ornaments all similar in design. They each use the curled paper as a 3D element but all can be stored flat!

I also completed the same files in a festive color scheme. Any coordinated pairs could be used so you can customize it to match your Christmas Tree color- scheme- if you have one.

I also spent some time re-doing some old files that were only available in the .studio format through the Silhouette Store. New on the site this holiday season are a couple of my earlier card designs.

And a contemporary classic of mine is the HoHoHo trees for table decor. Again new to 3dcuts this year but previously available on the SIL store.

All of these are available on the Christmas Theme page at the website here.

Happy Holiday crafting everyone!
