A pretty set of 3D papercraft baby shoes for favours or as a keepsake gift. The set includes the cutting template for the baby shoes, the presentation box and the elephant shaped tag. The shoes have a charming cut out design around the front and sides and include a scalloped sole as a bit of fancy frou-frou! Fasten with a brad or some ribbon to add the finishing touches. The box lid has a sweetheart design aperture (use a rectangle of acetate and adhere underneath to turn it into a window). The box lid has extra panel templates for you to cut from contrasting paper and adhere to the four sides (not shown) For extra rigidity the base has double-fold sides.
In addition, there is a delightful elephant-shaped tag – this comes in two parts so that you can write your message on one and cover with another. Cut from contrasting papers to make the elephant’s eye and fold-back ear pop! The electronic cutting file is available as an SVG for personal, non-commercial use only, and costs 5.50 euro.
Payment is through Paypal which will handle all currency conversions. Please note that you will need a Craft Robo, Silhouette, Cameo or other compatible cutting system to use this template. Your file will be sent to the e-mail address attached to the Pay Pal payment unless otherwise directed, within 24 hours of payment being received into Paypal. Thank you for looking.
Thought I’d show you the paper baby shoes I’m working on at the moment. Am also going to mod the template to have the strap ‘do up’ at the side and then will make a pretty box for them. I know what it is I want to make and it shouldn’t take long so will hopefully post over the weekend some time.
A lovely little robot pop-up called Bindy. It folds flat inside a card then pops up when it’s opened. I think this works for males and females for a whole load of different occasions. And who doesn’t like a cute robot?! There’s also plenty of room to add your words or a plaque with your sentiment on.
It’s available as a GSD or SVG file with a sheet of instructions in PDF format. You will need a Craft Robo, Silhouette or Cameo (or other compatible cutting machine) to cut this template out.
It costs 4.00 euro. Payment is through Paypal and the file will be sent to you via e-mail when your payment is received.
Thought I’d show you the text before the sparkles – you can see I’ve used offset path a number of times with different fills and chopped one layer in half to create the two-colour text in the middle and overlaid and intersected some spiky triangle ‘teeth’ to give the zig-zag effect… but what I’m really pleased with are the curls tucked into curves of the letterforms here and there. Why so pleased with them? Because I created a little ‘swooshy’ pattern brush in Illustrator that just curls and twirls around spirals and paths like a dream. I am thinking of writing up the tut on creating a pattern brush (you know, with corners, beginning and end bits) and feature this versatile and useful little brush. If anyone is interested let me know and I’ll get it done one evening this week.
About Me and the Tree
I’m delighted you’ve tripped over my blog. Have a sit down and a good mooch.
It’s not as organised as it could be. I forget to tag categories and too busy to amend when I think about them. I’ve also had the site hacked a couple of times and had to do a lot of work to find every entry point where corrupting code had been injected to redirect the site to ‘other places’. I try to keep the blog tidy but it can take a lot of time and energy to maintain it perfectly. It’s good enough though, eh?! Lol.
You’ll find Photoshop and Illustrator tutorials, sewing templates for stuffies and such like, embroidery, crochet, baking, salt dough recipes, SVG cutting files, papercuts (more on my Etsy shop (Paper Pictures by EllieEmyn) and lots of chat.
Most of the templates you’ll find are free though there are a few I’ve put up for sale. Anything else is for inspiration and enjoyment.
A little about me
I love doing and making things. Lots of things in lots of ways.
I love animals, especially cats. We had our lovely old ginger tom from kitten to elderly gent (20 +) when he died.
It took a few years before we were able to accept new kitties into our lives but have two now. Jess, a rescue cat who was about 5 when we got her, and Gracie, a kitten foundling.
I don’t say too much about any of us though (Mr T, our two great boys, all grown up now and doing really well) as I like to retain some privacy. I know you’re a good soul but the internet has its share of trolls, hackers and down right nasty knickers that make sharing too much information dangerous.
So, enjoy a good mooch and have fun.
