Windowed Gift Box #2 with Cutting File

Here is another windowed box.  I cut out windows for both roof panels but ended up putting a Pion Design picture in the window of one panel as I liked the idea of the lovely lady looking out the Prima window.  The resin windows are from Prima and the soft turquoise paper is Pion Design.  I have included a WPC cutting file here for this project but the manual tutorial can be found here.

Windowed Gift Box

I love the shape of this little box!  I’m putting some finishing touches on the cutting file and will be enclosing it on my next post.  I altered the sizes of this project a bit from the original project tutorial, which can be found on Randi’s website here.

Pop Up Christmas Ornament

I found this origami pop-up Christmas ornament on YouTube and I enclosed the YouTube video below for assembly instructions.  I made several of these for the ladies at my mother’s table at her church’s annual Ladies Christmas Lunch.  The ladies really enjoyed playing with these ornaments – they were definitely a hit!  The video shows making these with 3″ squares, but I enlarged mine to 3.25″ so that I could use an around-the-page punch for the decorative edges.  These are very easy to make and fold down to form a flat square.  They pop into shape when the bead is loosened.
