JUGS17! Pillow-box with unusual source...


Would you believe that this box is actually a capital R?

That's right. I have a cutting machine called a Craft Robo, and I have a true-type font called Boxes. Guess what it cuts? :) Yep, boxes. It also cuts tags and gift bags. This font is sold for a donation. You can find it here. There's a PDF "cheat sheet" so you know what letter or symbol cuts what box, tag or bag.

The capital R cuts a pillow box with a heart aperture. I chose to line the aperture with a texturised cardstock frame and embellish with Prima E flowers and some little stamens I found at the "pound shop." That's British for Dollar Store. :)

WOW - what a beautiful pillow box template! I can't get over that originated from the letter R! I too have a Craft Robo - I will have to give this one a try! Your flower embellishment looks pretty. Thank you so much for playing along with Just Us Girls template challenge - Hope you are able to join us next Saturday for an all new challenge!

I went to the site and purchased the download with a donation. I don't know what to do from there. I have a cricut with the scal program and I also have a silhouette. Any help you could give me would really be appreciated. Thanks so much.

Wow! What a cool program! I don't have the Craft Robo, so I can't play, but the boxes look fantastic! What a perfect box you created for this time of the year! Love the flowers you chose to embellish with! Thanks so much for playing our JUGs challenge!

Well I'll be jiggered! That's an R eh? LOL It's amazing and I never knew such a thing existed. No Craft Robo for me but thanks for sharing. Super pretty box. Thanks for playing along with Just Us Girls. Hope to see you again.

June- I hope you can see this comment. I don't use SCAL but I think that you need to install the font and then you can just use it the same as you would do for any true-type font. Did you get the pdf cheat sheet so you know what cuts what? I do love this font. I hope that you get the help you need with SCAL.

I'm set up to follow your blog- post when you get it working so that I know you can do it! I look forward to seeing your work.
