Swan Gift Box

This morning while browsing blogs I hopped over to Audrey's blog Cute and Some to find she had made this gorgeous swan box. Well, I fell in love with it. Audrey, with her generous, kind, and sharing nature not only provided an awesome tutorial but she shared two different types of cutting files. Sadly, I couldn't use either type of cutting file with my Cameo so, I figured a way to make it. Audrey provided some great pics in her tutorial so I did a screen shot of the Swan pic, opened it up in Studio and grabbed that sweet drawing tool. It took a little while to get it all drawn but, it was worth the trouble. When I finished I made my way back to the craft room and cut away. I had to make a couple of small adjustments after the first cut and then cut out the second box. I was delighted with the way it turned out. Thank you Audrey for sharing you idea and inspiring me to make one of these.

As many of you know, I'm not feeling too well these days. Round three of antibiotics! Crafting is definitely good for the soul. I made myself get back to that craft room to make this box. When I was done; I felt so good! Even though I'm tired as tired can be and this horrid cough keeps me worn out it was uplifting to create and make. The best feeling is; I get to share this cutting file with all of you Silhouette users. I love being able to share. I hope all of you try this box out. It would be great for wedding, bridal showers, and for that little girl who loves everything delicate and sweet.

I embellished it by making some spiral rolled roses, cut out some little leaves with the Cameo, embossed the lines in them and dabbed them with a darker green ink. When I got all of the roses and leaves glued on, I added some white feathers for flair. Next time I make one; I'll be adding some glitter.

  3. Hi Adele, I agree 100%. If we can think of it or see it we can make a fun cutting file.

    Hi Terri, how sweet you are. I'm so glad you like it. It will make one elegant gift box. It can be made larger by grouping all of the cutting file together and dragging it out by the bottom corner. I made this one letter sized but will make another one on a 12x12 piece so it can hold more goodies. :)

  15. Oh, Debbie, this is beautiful! You are so thoughtful for sharing this swan box. I love it and can't wait to try it for myself. Do what you have to do to get completely well. Sometimes antibiotics are not given for a long enough time period and the illness comes back. My husbands step-mother had this happen several times. Once my husband put his foot down they re-issued the prescription for the antibiotic and she got well! Thoughts and prayers are with you sweet lady! Big Hugs!!
