LW My Teacher Rocks Sticky Note & Pen Holder


Hi friends! I'm here today with an adorable My Teacher Rocks notepad. I know most everyone is on a traditional school schedule and right in the middle of Summer fun but our kids attend a year round school so we are already back to school for the 2018-2019 school year. So here I am sharing this teacher gift early in hopes you have time to get a jump start on yours.


I used the Sticky Note & Pen Holder svg which you can find at the Lori Whitlock store here or in the Silhouette Design Store here. You'll also notice I used the amazing new Back To School collection from Lori on my project. 


Thanks for stopping by today and hope everyone is enjoying their Summer so far!

LW Matching Mandala Card and Box Set


Hello everyone! I'm here to share my tutorial on creating a matching Lori Whitlock Mandala card and box set. I absolutely love the beautiful mandalas and wanted to create a box that has that same beautiful design. I feel this would be a perfect combo to give a friend on her birthday.


I started off making the Mandala Card 3 (Lori Whitlock store or Silhouette store) as my inspiration and then started the process of making the matching box. I opened up the Favor Box Ribbon Tie Scalloped SVG (found in the Lori Whitlock store or at Silhouette) along with a mandala SVG (Lori Whitlock store or at Silhouette). I resized the mandala to fit the front cover of the favor box.


Then I highlighted both pieces...right click, scroll down until "make compound path" was selected and left click.


Now the cut should look like this and ready to cut. The center pieces of the circles will cut but I chose not to use them on my project.


Next comes creating a circle that will fit behind the mandala to mask the pattern paper.


Make sure that the circle is big enough to cover the backside of the mandala but small enough not to peek out from behind the layered box piece.


Now everything is ready to cut!


And here are all of my pieces cut out from pattern papers (with the exception of the back cover panel).


Because the mandala svg is so intricate I used a small tip glue bottle to apply adhesive.


Now that I have the green circle adhered to the panel cover I am ready to pre-fold my box and then adhere it together.


Here is my box assembled and the front panel cover adhered to the front of the box.


Decorating is the fun part and there are so many options such as sequins, gems, ribbon, etc for decorating.





Thanks for joining me today for this tutorial! I hope this gets the creative juices flowing on how you can mix and match different Lori Whitlock svg cuts to create a whole slew of projects.

LW - Shaped Apple Cards for Teacher


Hello crafty friends! I have a couple of year end apple shaped cards to let your child's teacher know how special they are!



I combined a couple of Lori's cuts to create these cards. For the card base I used the Gift Card Holder Apple (SVG or Silhouette) and sentiment is the new Big Heart Teach Little Minds (SVG or Silhouette).




A little tip for you...I centered the sentiment on the apple and then highlighted the two cuts and clicked on "make compound path" to get this cut below. Then I cut it out and laid it on top of my card to know exactly where to glue my letters down.



Thanks for stopping by today!
