Yesterday, I posted my Treat Cup Holder Card , so
today, I thought I would show you some of the steps how I created it.
I have used the LD Klingelingeling - Turkey Lip Balm (CP) Cut Project file,
which allowed me the flexibility to alter the file.
The cutting file is FREE till tonight, midnight, MST.
The actual file is to fit an EOS smooth sphere Lip Balm which comes in a range of colours, but I could not find one locally, so I thought I would adapt the file.
I imported the file onto my Pazzles software. I altered the brown for the turkey, because when I printed it out using my printer, it was too dark! Using the cutting file enabled me to deselect the layers and alter the colour using my colour palette to make it slightly lighter. I would not have been able to do this if I had used the (GS) graphic set.
The only part that I needed to alter was the size of the circle that would hold the Stampin Up Treat Cup. I measured my Treat Cup and enlarged the circle on the Turkey's tummy to
1.7" for a perfect fit.
I then Print and Cut the base design onto white cardstock using my Pazzles Inspiration Vue cutting machine.
So, I now have a turkey with a big hole in the centre to fit my Treat Cup.
I filled the Treat Cup with assorted colours of Skittles to match my turkey. I had a sneaky taste of the flavours too!
I cut a circle of vellum/parchment paper, slightly larger than the cup and adhered it to the sticky strip around the back of the cup.
Using vellum/parchment paper means you can easily piece the paper to get at the treats without destroying the card!
I then inserted the cup from the back of the printed Turkey card.
Then, I cut my base card using Kraft Card and placed the hole so that it matched the hole in the turkey using my Pazzles software made this step very easy.
I used some strong tape to attach the front of the card to the Kraft Card. Using Kraft Card gives extra strength and keeps it stable when upright, due to the weight of the treats.
This is what the inside of the card looks like.......very neat.
I hope you enjoyed my adapted card. If you have access to the Lip Balms you will not need to alter the original file.
Have fun and Happy Thanksgiving.
