Folded ZigZag Card with Cutting File

I’ve made several of these zigzag cards in the past, and want to share the WPC cutting file for this card style.  The cutting file also includes presized decorative paper strips for the card panels that are sized for a regular Martha Stewart edge punch.  For this particular card however, I used a “deep-edge” punch so had to shorten the lengths of the decorative paper strips.  For those of you that do not have a WPC cutting machine, the manual tutorial can be found here.

Pan Pastel Round Boxes with Cutting File

Since my projects this week have all been boxes using Pan Pastel paints, I made some round ones today. The round boxes measure 3.75″ diameter.  Since round box cutting files can be difficult to find, I’ve enclosed a WPC cutting file here (right click on the cutting file link to “Save File” on your com­puter.  Then open in your machine software).  The blue lines on the cutting file are SCORE LINES. The side bands will need to wrap around to fit the base of the lid and box bottom and there will be some remaining overlap which can either be cut off or just glued to the side.  The two smaller circles (3.65″ diameter) are for the box bottom.  One circle can be used to place over the glued teeth to hide them.  I only included one 3.75″ circle for the box top as I used lace to hide the teeth on the underside of the lid.  You can just duplicate the larger circle if you want to cover the glued teeth with cardstock.

The decorative top and bottom on the lavender box are Cheery Lynn Design doilies with a Spellbinders border for the side.  The green and brown box uses Marianne dies for the top and bottom and a Martha Stewart punch for the side.

Another Pan Pastel box

Today I’ve made another box using soft pink and green Pan Pastel colors.  I’m loving this product!  It’s like the tubs of “liquid-to-powder” makeup in that you use a sponge to apply the color to your cardstock.  Application is so smooth, fun, and easy.  You can use white to soften the colors further.
