3D Letter "E" Tutorial

Happy THANKSGIVING everyone!
We at Snapdragon Snippets wish you a restful and joyous day with your family and friends.

Debb is sharing another great tutorial. This time is the 3D Box letter E file #28784

Identify the pieces. There will be matching symbols cut into the tabs to help keep the top pieces and the bottom pieces together.

The HEART, DIAMOND, SQUARE, and CIRCLE are the narrower panels and create the top.
(Note: the DOUBLE TRIANGLE, DOUBLE CIRCLE , DOUBLE HEART and DOUBLE RECTANGLE  are the wider pieces and create the bottom. The process is done in reverse, with the letter being upside-down.)

Match the ends and glue together. Continue gluing all the matching pieces.
  

The last piece will connect to the first piece creating a loop and forming the outside of the letter.


Identify the long side of the shape and attach the long side of the E. You can fold at the score lines at this point. 

Fold the tabs inward and create the E shape. Glue the top down to the tabs.


It might be helpful to press on the tabs from the inside.


Attach the decorative panels.


The inside panels are small and you might need tweezers to get them in place. You might also want to add the panels before you attach the top.



The completed letter E.

3D Cornucopia -- with Julie


Here it is, Wednesday, and the day before Thanksgiving here in the U.S.  Julie here today from Muddy Paws & Inky Fingers. I needed a centerpiece for the dinner table, and being crafty, I decided it was best to make it.  After all, why buy fruit when you can make it, right?
The cornucopia and everything in it is from Snapdragon Snippets.  I had such fun with this!

There's 3D apples, a 3D pear, and even a 3D pumpkin, all tucked inside a fancy cornucopia all found in the Silhouette Design StoreYou can also find this in the SVG Attic store here.
All papers for this project are from Close To My Heart.  The cornucopia is made out of Kraft and designer paper from the Path Finding paper pack. I cut everything out on my Silhouette Cameo.
Make sure to check out the new Snapdragon Snippets store for lots of fun projects.  Then, visit the blog each day for great inspiration from this talented design team.  And, check out the Snapdragon Snippets Facebook page, too, for even more inspiration, fun, and contests. 
This Thanksgiving, I'm counting my blessings.  And you, are among them!

3D Letter "D" Tutorial

Today we have Debb sharing another awesome tutorial.  This time is the 3D Letter D Box file #28783


Identify the pieces. There will be matching symbols cut into the tabs to help keep the top pieces and the bottom pieces together.

The SQUARES and DIAMONDS are on the narrower pieces and create the top. Match the ends and glue together. Continue gluing all the matching pieces.
(Note: the HEART and CIRCLE are the wider pieces and create the bottom.)

The last piece will connect to the first piece creating a loop and forming the outside of the letter.

The remaining piece will connect and become the middle of the D. Bend both pieces at the score lines.


The tabs on the inner wall fold out, and the tabs on the outer wall fold in. Attach the long side of the D first, then add glue and adhere the remaining tabs.

It may be easier to secure the tabs if you turn it upside down and press on a hard surface.

Then attach the inside of the D to the top in the same manner.

Add the decorative top and side panels.

The bottom part of the letter is constructed in the same manner, but the pieces are in reverse.


The finished letter D!
