    I am excited to share two samples today, using each of the NEW! Templates we’ve released as well as many other NEW! products!

    Now while both templates share the same tab top feature, each one on it’s own is pretty amazing and looks unique :D

    Pull Tab Up: Square $5

    Available in PDF, SVG, GSD, DXF, WPC

    Completed Project Size:

    3 1/2 X 3 1/2 Inches Wide

    3 1/2 Inches Tall

    This  “pull-up-tab” takes the “plain” out of what would be a typical square box!

    This was designed after pulling off the tab on a tissue box, and combining that with the tab tuck in feature on some boxed candy. You will see how the inspiration inspired a pull up tab that opens up the top of this box.

    This box is so fun, fresh, and easy to assemble, that it is sure to quickly become a favorite for every occasion.

    My sample here was make from a fuchsia cardstock.

     I then printed, cut and layered my pretty Wind My Girly Gears patterned paper on the sides and back of the box.

    Using the colors from the paper, I digitally colored the bird from the Wind Em’ Up set, then cut it out.

    Prior to assembling the template I used the Flag’Em Down Cut File to create the window in the front of my box, and further enlarged it to cut the pink mat layer as well. I printed my sentiment “You wind-up my heart” from the Wound Sentiments set on my acetate sheet, and adhered it to the inside of the box.

    This was such a FUN and SIMPLE project. Now I have something special, ready to go for a great gift :D

    Now I wanted to create a more masculine themed box, so I decided to use the Octagon template with a masculine flair!

    Pull Tab Up: Octagon $5

    Available in PDF, SVG, GSD, DXF, WPC

    Completed Project Size:

    4 1/4 X 3 1/2 Inches Wide

    3 Inches Tall

    This gear shaped (octagon) box is a unique take on its “sister” box, the Pull Tab Up: Square. Sometimes you want something that LOOKS more complicated than it actually is. This is a awesome shaped template for SO many occasions.

    Upon assembling the Pick of the Petals box for a gift several months ago (OK maybe like a year ago! LOL!), I was inspired to take the fun pull tab design of the Pull Tab Up: Square , and designed an octagon shaped one too.

    This box shape is so fun, fresh, and easy to assemble that it is sure to quickly become a favorite for every occasion.

    Now how about the details on this creation!

    So, to go with the bird theme I used the Trendy Forest © paper collection for my sample. It was a no brainer really. You think birds, then you think trees. I wanted something I could give to my husband this Valentines Day and I think this will be perfect.

    I  chose to use the colors from the paper collection to then digitally color the bird from the Wind Em’ Upset, then used my Cameo Silhouette cut it out. I love that the machine can cut out your digital images to perfection. No more handcutting for me!

    I printed my sentiment “You make my heart” from the Wound Sentiments set and put it on the heart wind up on the bird. I then took the “sing” from the sentiment and placed it on my bird’s wing. I love it. I proceeded to digitally color the heart gear from the Wind Em’ Up set as well, and add it to my box.
