Baby Boy Shower Card with Cutting File and Cutting Template

This may be my all-time favorite card style as I love the pocket and tag feature inside.  I used Pion Design papers and the beautiful corners inside the card were made with a Nellie Snellen die.  

You can download this card’s WPC cutting file here.  The manual cutting template for the card’s interior pocket can be downloaded here.  Black lines are cut lines and blue lines are score lines.  Make the base card by cutting your cardstock to 12″ x 5″ and then score it in the middle.  The pocket goes inside the card on the right side as shown below.

One-Piece Gift Box with Cutting File

This little origami box is great in that it is all just one piece!  The box lid folds down as you can see in the pictures.  I thought the little Prima fairy inside was a cute surprise.  I used the Pazzles software to make a WPC cutting file here for those with this capability.   I am also enclosing the printable cutting template downloadI came up with – you will probably want to enlarge the template as the original cutting file measures 8.75″ x 11.875″ (the downloadable template had to fit on a standard 8 1/2″ x 11″ format).  Once you have it sized to how you want it, print it onto your card stock or paper and then cut the black lines and score the blue lines.  The Scor-Pal tutorial can be dowloaded here

Crafter’s Companion Envelopes

Crafter’s Companion has some really helpful tools for making cards, envelopes, and boxes.  For these envelopes, I used “The Enveloper” and made them quickly and easily!  The tool comes with a guide for making all different sizes of envelopes, including dimensional ones!  It’s great to have an envelope that matches the card. I made several to hold gift cards along with a matching note.
