Happy Monday! First off thanks for all the sweet comments you left on the last post about my Be Mine box. The winner of the free template drawn through Random.org is #27 Deb Please contact Leigh Ann with the template of your choice.
Today I want to share with you something I am very proud of. I have been wanting a heart box SVG file for awhile now and was not able to find anything like it so with Rich's help I was able to design and successfully create my first SVG template. Introducing The Simple Heart Box.
There are lots of possibilities for things to make with this template but this was a vision I had in my head for awhile now and am very happy with how it turned out.
I started buy cutting out the sides of the template using paper from this digi pack that I printed on both sides of the cardstock. The bottom and top pieces were cut out of PTI Vintage Cream Cardstock. The roses were cut from PTI Sweet Blush, Hibiscus, and Raspberry Fizz cardstock using this SVG file then I rolled them by hand all 30 of them. When I was done with that I arranged them on the top of box then hot glued them down. A piece of baby pom trim from this Etsy shop was added to the edge of the lid with scoretape. A piece of Rose Water seam binding from this Etsy shop was tied around the top right hand corner in a double bow then I added the same tag I used in my last post with some twine and finished it off with a vintage cream button. This is what the inside looks like with the top off.
It is a good size box measuring approximately 51/8 x 41/2. The great thing about SVG files though is that you can resize them to any size you want.
If you would be interested in trying this template send me an email and I would be happy to share it with you. The only thing I ask is you don't try to sell the template, you are free to sell things you make with it though.
This box will be going up for sale in my Etsy shop soon if anyone is interested in buying it. The Etsy Greetings Team I am a member of is also having a special promotion this week called Love is Handmade. Over 50 members will be offering specials in their shop.
