Today I have fun project I'd like to share with you. Earlier this month I entered this project into the Customer Appreciation contest at Jaded Blossom and am happy to say that it was chosen as the fan favorite. And now that the contest is over I can share my project with all of you.
For my project I used the Good Day at the Office file from SVG Cuts. This file set has the perfect focal point project - the typewriter treat box. The box was easy to assemble and it wasn't until I cut out the keyboard that I had any issues. I think I ended up cutting out three of them that were messed up before I decided to try using a brand new mat and had success.
To decorate the typewriter I chose to use some flowers since I used flower print papers. On the knobs I used a couple of mini bottle caps from my stash. For the sentiment I used the recently released Coworkers stamp set from Jaded Blossom. And since I somehow managed to smear the dot of my exclamation point I added a small sprinkle to cover the booboo while adding a little bit of emphasis at the same time.
Next is the rolodex greeting card.
This is another file included in the Good Day at the Office. For this card I used another sentiment from the Coworkers stamp set. I also decided to use a couple of raspberry colored skittles from DoubleClick Connections. And then to finish it off I used a fun foot shaped paperclip that was in my stash.
Then we have the business card holder.
I saw this idea in a magazine years ago and just fell in love with it. I've made several of these and even use them to hold my business cards when I'm out doing craft shows. So here's how you make one of these for yourself:
Cut rectangles in the following sizes:
- 1 @ 1 1/2" x 4 1/4"
- 2 @ 2 5/8" x 4 1/8"
- 1 @ 1 1/8" x 4"
Glue the pieces to the cassette tape cover accordingly and then decorate. Again, I used another sentiment from the Coworker stamp set. The telephone is from the Cricut cartridge From My Kitchen.
