3D box cards

I bought a Silhouette Cameo earlier this year, and although in the beginning I was a little disappointed, I am now in love with it.

I have had a Cricut die cutting machine for many years, graduating from a tiny one to the larger one. My son bought me the Sure Cuts A Lot program that I could use with my Cricut to cut almost any thing I liked, only to have Provo Craft, who make the Cricut machines, sue SCAL. I could not use the program on the new bigger machine that I got, and was limited to my mini.

So when I discovered that I could cut out anything on the Silhouette, I saved up and got one from Amazon.  As I mentioned before, I was a little disappointed, as I discovered, there were some cutting files that I couldn't use without making a further purchase of Studio Designer add on.  Once again my son came to my rescue and got me Sure Cuts A Lot3 , that works a treat.

I have just started buying files from SVG Cuts, and I am in heaven making some fantastic card boxes.

Here are some that I have made so far.
I've made 2 of these for friends
This one is being sent to my great niece Talia in England

I think I will be keeping this one for me. I made a few adjustments as it originally came with the American flag

My sister Lorna asked for this one as it is her anniversary later this month
That is 6 cards. I bought 3 sets and I think they each have 5 cards in them, so I am going to be very busy in the last few weeks before I have to go back to school in September.
