Split Wall Art

Hi everyone, Esther here!

I wanted to share a couple of projects I made with Snapdragon Snippets Wall Art files. These files are so fun and I love the way you can insert a name, or anything else you want, in between the split.

I decided I wanted to make some wall art for my grandchildren's rooms.

My granddaughter is totally into princesses (what girl isn't) right now, so for her I chose to use split castle wall art which you can find here and cut it out with black vinyl. I decided to put it on a white shadow box so that I could put some fun background paper behind it. I used Magical Forest in Ever After by Pebbles. Then I cut her name out at 3/4" with pink vinyl using the Storybook Cricut cartridge.

My grandson is playing Little League and just loving every minute of it. For his wall art I chose to use Split Baseball wall art which you can purchase here and cut it out with white vinyl. I picked a black shadowbox and his background paper is Zach from Love You More by Pebbles. His name was cut out in yellow vinyl at 3/4" using the Plantin Schoolbook Cricut cartridge.

Thanks for stopping by to take a peek!!

Cake box surprise box tutorial

 Hello, this is Ruthie and today I will show you how to assemble the Cake Box Surprise. This is how the file will look at your computer screen.
I started with the lid. Fold all the tabs and identify the parts of the lid. On the white part add adhesive and fold up on each one.
It will look like this. Add glue to the side tabs and adhere them to make the box.
 Add glue to the tabs to adhere square piece on the top. See the picture below.

Add adhesive to this part (with the square in the center) and put it inside to cover the tabs. Your are going to make the same step with the base. 
The adhere the pattern paper to the lid. Cover the 5 sides of the box.

Insert the tabs of the square pieces and glue down the tabs. 
Do the same on each side to make the box. And add adhesive to the bottom part and fold it up.
Add glue to all the tabs and put this two pieces together. Make sure that the folded part goes up. On the bottom you will have 4 tabs, which makes the bottom part of the box. In this step you can glue the bottom pieces; the square one and the one with the square in the center. It´s going to be a little tricky but with a little patience you can make it.
Add glue to the tabs and secure them. 
And here it is! 
A lovely box to put a cake pop, lollipop, rose, or anything you like inside as a surprise!  I regret not having a cake pop when I finished the tutorial.
The post seems a little bit long but I wanted to cover the most of the steps and make it easy for you.

3D Cake Box

Super excited to be here to welcome you to our first Snapdragon Snippets Design Team post.

This is Gaby here to share a cake box made by Lisa Reyna.
Lisa used one of the 3D Tiered Cake Boxes available over on the Silhouette Online Store.  She also used one of the Bow files to adorn the cake box.  Here is a link to yet another bow file if you prefer a narrow version.  Lisa finished up her beautiful cake box with these gorgeous butterflies.

Additional info provided by Lisa "I made it with recollections cardstock. The heart topper was made with wire dipped in mod podge and then in glitter. I used small adhesive rhinestone for accents on the butterflies."

HERE is a link to the SDS Portfolio on the Silhouette Online store so you can take a look at all of SDS' awesome files.

Thank you so much for stopping by to take a look at Lisa's beautiful creation.  Make sure you come back tomorrow for Ruthie's tutorial.  But don't stop there! come back again on Wednesday and on Friday to see what our designers have in store for you!
