A Dandylicious Blogiversary!

A Dandylicious Blogiversary!

Congratulations to Dandy on hosting her craft blog, Dandylicious Creates, for one year’s time!! Dandy crafts it all–including hair!! She makes scrapbooks (including digi scrapping), cards, banners, fancy bags, embellishments, cupcakes and cookie sand other non-paper crafts. Dandy operates a hair salon out of her home so she can by a stay-at-home mom. See, creativity runs throughout her body!

If you have arrived from Eva’s Scraps N’ Cards, you are at the right stop. If you want to go to the start, go to Dandy’s Blog.

Here is a cut file that I have been working on for a bit. Dandy’s celebration is the perfect event to try it out. I have created a decorative box for dressing up your champagne bottle. Either on your own holiday table or as a host gift. (Be sure to support the bottom of the box!) I have made my first version with Bubbles! Fitting for a celebration! I am working on other styles/themes.

Champagne Box Zip File
Well, kind of. It depends on which personal paper cutting machine you own. I only have the Pazzles Inspiration. If you are a follower, you know that I love this machine. This Bottle Box is an example as to why I do: I can create my own cut files! However, Pazzles files have a file extension of WPC. For those of you without a Pazzles, you can give it a try. I have tried and tried to convert this file. I am having a lot of difficulties. Whether you get the file to cut properly or not, I would really, really appreciate your feedback. The attached file has WPC, DXF and SVG.
I offer this cut file to those of you who have Pazzles without a hitch.
I offer it as DXF. Not sure what this will do?
I also offer it as SVG WITH these notes:
SVGers, you need to use Side A and Side B as well as read the PDF on how to put the box together. I am not sure if the directions will show on the SVG file. Confused? I am!! Keep reading for more directions.
Upon opening the file, you may have to break/ungroup the drawing and then change the red solid lines to dashes. Those lines are supposed to be perforations (not solid lines) to allow for easier folding. (Or you could delete the red lines and score by hand.)

Thanks for stopping by today. Now you are on to Mary’s blog, Capturing Magical Memories. We hope you have enjoyed the hop. Maybe you found some new ideas and/or hobbies.
