I did up a little gift box cutting file shaped like a dainty purse file a few weeks ago that was the perfect gift box for a pair earrings or jewellery. ( see Purse Gift Box Cutting File in GSD SVG KNK and MTC formats)
Tonight I did up another free gift box cutting file- this one is slightly larger. I am quite pleased with myself- this cut perfectly on the first test cut! I couldn’t believe it.
It has been such a horrific week and didn’t expect anything to go right.
Imagine my dismay that with one of the more complicated cutting files I have ever done to have it work right out of the gate!
Normally I screw up setting origin, mat isn’t sticky enough or I forget to make a outline a pounce line… but not tonight! Was very thrilled.
I am have been cutting with KNK Studio or Studio GE for about 4 years now and recently switched over to Make the Cut. I would like to hear from others who have used both- I am finding less problem in general using Make the Cut. The cuts come out cleaner and so far no issues communicating with machine. KNK Studio is a GREAT program and it can’t be beat if you want to create designs from scratch but I do think cutting is easier with MTC.
Print Your Own Christmas Scrapbook Paper
I started off with printing my own paper. I have become a big fan of Lettering Delights and used “Argyle” pattern from Peppermint Holiday Paper Pack– costs only 2 bucks. ( You can use most photo editing application like Photoshop to print- I do use Make the Cut to print printable papers. See short video tutorial if you’d like to try)
Free Gift Box Cutting File
I like to play with scale with the paper and in picture of my purse gift boxes below you can see two gift boxes using the same paper. I just changed the scale when printing in MTC. The two papers used below are both Argyle from Peppermint Holiday Paper Pack. I printed one on white cardstock ( smaller print) and the other using glossy photo paper from dollar store.
