Primary Color Challenge

I’m so excited to be a guest designer for the first challenge at a new e-cutter challenge blog called The Paper Cabana.  The first challenge is “primary colors” so I grabbed some things from my stash and went to work.


I love using clear plastic binder-cover pages for different projects, so I made a pyramid treat box this time using the Pyramid Boxes SVG set from Lettering Delights.  Because I have Silhouette Studio Designer Edition, all I had to do was open this SVG file and turn on its cut lines, and it was ready to go.  You can read my post here with links where to buy these clear sheets and what blade settings to use.


I cut this cute red chevron paper from “Alphabet Soup” by My Mind’s Eye.  Just a regular Tombow adhesive runner sticks it to the plastic, and mini glue dots hold the box flaps together (hidden under the paper triangles).  I used a glue dot for the bow, but you may try punching holes and threading it through so it will hold better.  The final touch (besides filling it with candy before gluing the flaps closed) was to add this sentiment with blue vinyl.  The font I used was LHF Cosmic Cursive.

I hope you play along for this challenge from The Paper Cabana.  Your only requirement besides the weekly theme is to use some kind of cut file with an e-cutter.  Primary colors are so cheerful, and I can’t wait to see what you make!
