Paper Crafting Projects


Stationery Case with Cutting File

This Stationery Case is another great Crafter’s Companion project.  I ended up making it however with the Pazzles software.  The beautiful paper bow on the stationery case is the Pazzle’s 12 Days of Christmas project #2.  Here is the WPC cutting file for this project and here is the Crafter’s Companion download for manual instructions and assembly instructions.  This is a great handmade gift project idea!  






Advent Calendar

This Advent Calendar is one of the wonderful projects on the Crafter’s Companion website.  It has 24 drawers total, with 6 on each side of the box.  Although I do have the Ultimate Crafter’s Companion Pro and can easily make the project with this tool, I decided that individually cutting and scoring 24 boxes and box covers was too time-consuming so I ended up making the project on the Pazzles Inspiration.  The annual Pazzles 12 day Christmas Challenge has started and the first project for the Challenge is the “Giant Rosette” which I’ve included on the box top.








Christmas Explosion Box

I was happy to get some new Pion Design papers this past weekend and made this box using one of their Silent Night Christmas sheets.  This particular paper has very soft, muted colors so I used a dark brown cardstock to help pull the colors out.  I included the Explosion Box WPC cutting file on my last post but here it is again.   I used the 3-layer concept once again for the 2013 month-by-month vintage calendar.  I think this project will make a great stocking stuffer!
