Gift Boxes

This adorable trapezoid box is a one piece cut and is sized to create a box approximately 3-1/2" x 1-1/2" x 2-1/2" (widest measurements) in size.  If you have a Cameo, you can enlarge the pieces to create a larger box!  The file comes with the box base and coordinating mats as shown.  The file is compatible with both the 8x12 and 12x12 mats!  

Here is the tutorial.  Start with image on bottom right.

More Paper Flowers!

This flower is quick and easy to cut and assemble! The files are compatible with both the 8x12 and 12x12 mats.  You can find additional images and tutorials on my blog:
Here is the tutorial:
 1.  Cut out all your piece.  
 2.  Start with the long piece.  Using a skewer (or pencil) begin rolling making sure the glue   
      tab piece is on the opposite (closing) end.
 3.  Your piece should look similar to this when rolled.
 4.  Let it unroll a little and place a strong adhesive to the glue tab as shown.
 5.  Tuck the glue tab in just above the roll bottom, adhere to the glue tab to the petal.
 6.  I use a small hair rubber band (the loom rubber bands work too if you have littles!) to hold the piece while the glue sets.
 7.  Place adhesive on the other two glue tabs of the remaining flower forms.
 8.  Adhere the glue tab to the flower form...making sure to form a pointed bottom.
 9.  Repeat Step #8 for the remaining flower form.
10. Use small clips to hold while adhesive secures.
11. Next cut/grab your leaf piece.  Curl with your skewer/pencil.
12. Remove your rubber band from your first piece.  Pull the petals back a bit and curl down with the skewer.
13. Your piece will look like this now.  This is the center.
14. Use Hot Glue or a strong adhesive to adhere the center to the like petal flower form.
15. Use Hot Glue or a strong adhesive to adhere the flower to the round petal flower form.
16. Your flower should look like this now.
17. Adhere your leaf to the flower.
18. Cut the pieces for the second color and repeat steps!

Spring Flowers

This flower is quick and easy to cut and assemble! The files are compatible with both the 8x12 and 12x12 mats.

1.  Fold on on the score lines.
2.  Push each swirl in toward the center.  When you reach the last one, pull up the first swirl (the one you started with) and tuck the small bubble piece under it.
3.  You will have to push the pieces down and the base will bend out slightly to form the "puff". 

I lost the tutorial photos for the above flower :(
This one comes with two rectangle cuts.  They will follow the same tutorial as the flower below for those cuts.

1. Cut out all the pieces.  Use a skewer or pencil to curl the flower petals.  Flip the rectangle cuts over and add a strong adhesive along the bottom edge.  I am using Scrappy Tape from  
2. Starting with your smallest rectangle, fold the piece in half (long ways) so that your strip cuts are folded in half.  Place strong adhesive along the bottom edge.
3. Begin rolling the piece inwards.
4. Your piece should look similar to this when rolled.
5. Repeat step 2 for both your remaining strips.  Grab the next size in length and adhere it to your existing roll.  The photos above make this difficult to see as they look very similar in color (sorry!).  Once that strip is adhered, begin rolling it around the original one.
6. Your roll should look like this now.
7. Do the same with your final strip, adhering it in place and rolling.
8. Your rolled pieces should now look like this!
9. Use a strong adhesive (like hot glue or Zip Dry Paper Glue) to adhere the rolled center to the smallest flower form.  Adhere the other two flower forms together with foam adhesive.
10. Adhere the pieces together and "fluff" as needed!

1. Cut out all your pieces. Beginning with the triangle cuts, place adhesive along the bottom edge. I am using Scrappy Tape from  
2. Stagger the triangles and adhere the two together, lining up the bottom edges so they are even.
3. Place another strip of adhesive along the bottom edge.
4. Roll the triangles inward and then spread out the 'spikes'.
5. Adhere the smallest flower form around the center.
6. Continue adhering the flower forms in place going smallest to largest.
