Star Favor Box

Good Monday morning everyone! Did you have a wonderful weekend? You all know I did! (And if you don't just scroll down to Saturday's post. :)

Today I want to show you a neat Star Favor Box & Card SVG file that Doodle Pantry released on the 5th this month. First, have I mentioned that I love SVG files? They are so fun and versatile and they help me think that I didn't waste my money on a Cricut! You do need to know, though, that you need either Sure Cuts A Lot or Make The Cut to use SVG files with your Cricut or other hardware. (And actually they don't sell the software to work with Cricut's any longer but I won't get into that.) Anyway, all you have to do is import the SVG file into your software, put your desired paper on the mat, and cut...it makes it easy to make things such as this cute star favor! While this one is pretty tiny (maybe a Hershey nugget size) you can scale the files to make them as big or small as you'd like! I'll be making some of these for Scott's graduation party in a couple of weeks. I'm also planning on making a big one for a table centerpiece. I'm not sure I'll actually fill it with anything but it will look great sitting on the table!

Do you want this template but don't have the hardware/software I talked about above? Well, the good news is that when you purchase this template it comes as a PDF as well so you can cut it out by hand! Yay!

Alright, I need to get a move on it this morning. My exercise DVD is calling my name! Smiley from <span class= Have a wonderful day!
