Little Summer Projects

Wow, I didn't realize it had been so long since I posted. I told myself I'd post at least once a month. So, guess I need to do two postings to catch up!

I'm just going to share a few things I have worked on fairly recently. Firstly, I've been trying my hand at etching. And, everyone in the family is getting an etched mug this year. I think I've made around eight of them so far. I wanted to make a box to put them in, and this is what I came up with. The Gable Box from SVG Cuts' Classic Gift Boxes SVG Kit worked perfectly when sized down to 85% of the original size.

I reinforced the bottom with chipboard, and also double-cut the handle section, as you can see from the photo, to make it stronger. I love how sturdy this box turns out.

Here's the one I made for one of the guys in the family. A bit more masculine.
And, here's another one I made for my niece.
 And, you can see a sample of the mugs I've been etching.
Next, I made a couple of small boxes for twin sisters. I put some Italian crumiri cookies. The box is also from SVG Cuts, from the B is for Birthday SVG Kit. I love how the top has an acrylic see-through insert so you can see what's inside. It's a pretty deep little box and is very versatile.
And, lastly just a little clutch purse that was made for a give-away from SVG Cuts. They gave away one of the handbag patterns from their Luxury Handbags SVG Kit, and whoever made it was given a gift card to their store. I think 100s of us made them. It was so easy and quick, and would be perfect for a gift card and some earrings, or another piece of jewelry or trinket.
So that's all for now. I hope you're all having a great summer!

Happy Sunny Days!
