Blog Party with Lori Whitlock and Kerri Bradford using Silhouette Cameo

Somewhere there is a tiny naked Santa running around.

Hi everyone!  Welcome to the Lori Whitlock and Kerri Bradford (and their Design Teams) “Last Minute Gifts Blog Party”.  Today I’m showing how I used some creative files from Lori & Kerri together in the same project.  I hope you enjoy it!

Don’t miss the GIVE AWAY at the end of this post!

WHAT is DECAF doing there?!

I used Lori’s Cupcake Box and did some tiny alterations to it, turning it into a fun coffee gift for a friend or office mate!

The rectangle & circle are on the right but hidden by the candy cane paper.

I shrank the cupcake circle so it would hold a K-cup and I added a rectangle to hold a gift card standing on its end. I thought this would be a great gift for an office friend who is also a coffee lover. If the office has a Keurig coffee machine this is a nice way to share a sample from your favorite stash and still offer the option of Starbucks with a never-go-wrong coffee gift card.

Just 3 pieces make this box! So Cool!

The inside of the box was created using the Silhouette Cameo’s print and cut feature. I used that great candy cane pattern from some of Lori’s digital paper, printed it using my printer and then let the Cameo do it’s cutting magic.

Such a cute Santa suit!

The outside of this fun coffee gift box is decorated using Kerri Bradford’s adorable Santa suit. I used the print and cut feature with that too. I added a little baker’s twine clothes line by rolling glue dots until they were really thin so I could adhere the twine to the box. You could also use Glue Dots Lines.

Coffee Treat Box from the Top

I made a little card for the top of the box.  I set one of the “Twas the Night Before Christmas” sayings slightly to the left of the other one to gift it more dimension.

To create the card, I made several rectangles and filled them with Lori’s Christmas paper patterns. I stacked the filled rectangles over each other until I had the look of several layers of paper. Then I added Kerri’s “Twas the Night Before Christmas” image over that. I added a thin highlight underneath the Christ part of Christmas using more of Lori’s Christmas paper as a fill to another rectangle.

I hope you enjoyed this project!
