Silhouette 3D Pencil Smencil Treat Holder

I hope that you enjoy this project because I designed the whole thing!  I used my Silhouette Cameo to create this 3D design.

I heart my Silhouette Cameo!

Here’s part of my creation.  I had such a good time making it.  Being able to create my own designs is one of the big draws for me to the Silhouette Cameo.  I decided I wanted to create a holder for the Peppermint Smencils (Smencils = pencils that have a smell) that I have.  My kids wanted to give some to their friends, so I created this fun way to deliver them.

Supplies Include Smencils! Pencils that smell yummy.

I cut everything out and stamped “a tree-t for you” from the Joy’s Life Yummy Puns stamp set.

I smell peppermint!

 Every time I can create something out of a single sheet of paper, I’m impressed.  Don’t you love doing that?  This whole project uses less than one sheet of 12×12 paper for one creation.

Simple 3D tree.

If I’d planned ahead I could have scored these in the Silhouette software.  Oh well.  You know what else works?  A scoring board! LOL!  I pulled out my Fiskars Trimmer & Scorer and did my best to score those trees down the middle. Using a score board more like the Martha Stewart Score Boardwould have been better for this small work because it was hard to hold the trees in place under the Fiskars’ holding area.Long story short…score the trees down the middle and stick their sides together using Glue Dots.  That makes a 3D tree!

What! No presents under that tree?

I think this would make a nice teacher gift too!

  10. Ok, I am following the Shabby Vanity! Whew, that was an ordeal. . . When you go to the link you provided, I didn’t know what to do. (I am sick and not really with it today!) If you click on the article, then it takes you back to your site. . . . So, I went to Shabby Vanity’s blog site and joined. I hope this is right, because I would love to win this giveaway. I want to start a blog, so I can showcase all my wonderful creations using my cricut and the silhouette Santa is bringing me for Christmas!

    These are just darling! I wish I had waited a little longer to buy my Silhouette, got it about 2 months before the Cameo came out. The narrowness of the mat is really a problem!

    Love your creations. You always have cute things!

  12. I love how you made the 3-D tree for the front of the holder. Getting inspired by all your wonderful crafting posts! Thanks for the inspiration. Mary Jo
