Paper Home Decor, Mother’s Day, Parties Centerpieces

This is a Paper Home Decor, Mother’s Day, Parties Centerpieces, etc that we can use to embellish any home or party table. This beautiful project was done using recycling material, regular colored copy paper, spray paint, and some other materials to embellish. During the process, to determine the correct size. The first cut I made was very small, so I formed a butterfly with those small pieces. The tree has two different flowers that I formed using the exact same file. I did it so you can see that with just one file, you can make different flowers, just depends on the way that you glue them. The two flowers and the Butterfly were made using the same pieces

Materials:

  • KNK Digital Cutting Machine (I used the KNKGroove-e)

Instructions:

  1. First, I rolled some pages of a newspaper to make the branches of the tree. 
  2. After having all the needed pages from the newspaper rolled. I made the arrangement gluing the pieces with hot glue in the almond can to form the Tree. In the beginning, I thought that it looked more like a TV antenna LMAO.
  3. Then, I proceeded to paint it, using spray paint
  4. While the tree was drying, I opened MTC and started to cut the flowers, leaves and the bird.
  5. Then I formed the flowers and painted the border of them with crayons (I was at work and did not have chalk. But I recommend a color that you can blend)
  6. Then, I glued all the flowers to the paper tree.
  7. Finally, I put a dot of hot glue on the flowers to make a water drop on them.
  8. The bird was cut with a decorative cardstock and the nest was made using angel hair, the same one that we use on Christmas, and painted with spray paint. And the eggs were done using paper towels.

Este hermoso proyecto se realizó utilizando material reciclado, papel fotocopias de colores, pintura en aerosol y algunos materiales para decorar. Durante el proceso para determinar el tamaño correcto, el primer corte que hice fue muy pequeño. Así que formé una mariposas con esas piezas pequeñas. El árbol tiene dos flores diferentes que formé utilizando exactemente el mismo archivo. Lo hice para que puedan observar que con un sólo archivo, pueden hacer diferentes flores. Sólo depende la forma que le des al papel. Los dos tipos de flores y la mariposa se hicieron usando las mismas piezas.

Instrucciones:

  1. Primero, enrollé algunas páginas de papel periódico para hacer las ramas del árbol 
  2. Después de haber enrollado todas las páginas de periódico, En la lata de almendra pegué todas las piezas hasta formar el árbol. Al principio, pensé que se parecía más a una antena de TV, jajajaja.
  3. Luego, procedí a pintar el árbol utilizando pintura en aerosol
  4. Mientras el árbol se estaba secando, abrí el programa MTC y comencé a cortar las flores, las hojas y el pájarito.
  5. Luego formé las flores y pinté el borde con crayolas (me encontraba en el trabajo y no tenía tizas. Pero yo recomiendo un color que puedas difuminar).
  6. Luego, pegué todas las flores al árbol de papel.
  7. Finalmente, formé unas bolitas con pega caliente en las flores para que parecieran gotas de agua sobre ellas.
  8. El pajarito fue cortado en cartulina decorativa y el nido fue hecho con cabello de ángel, el mismo que usamos en Navidad, y pintado con pintura en aerosol. Los huevitos se hicieron utilizando papel toalla.

 

 

Beautiful Box Wedding Invitations Embellished with Ribbons

Beautiful Box Wedding Invitations Embellished with Ribbons Beautiful Box Wedding Invitations Embellished with Ribbons

My Cousin is getting married and they asked me to please make this  Beautiful Box Wedding Invitations Embellished with Ribbons. They saw the file on the internet and I bought it to make their invitations. If you would like to have the file, you can find it here.

I needed to make 80 invitations, so I used my KNK Groove-e with MTC software and my KNK Force with SCAL to hurry up the process.

The materials that I used for this beautiful Box Wedding Invitations Embellished with Ribbons were:

Settings for KNK Force:

  • Passes = 2
  • SD = 40
  • CD = 80
  • CS =  15
  • US = Default-40
  • PS = Default-20
  • LS = Default – 20
  • Red Blade
  • BT = 2

Settings for KNK Groove-e:

  • Passes = 2
  • Blue blade
  • V = 150
  • F = 40
  1. I bought and downloaded the file to my computer.
  2. Then, Using SCAL I open the file to be cut. In SCAL the file opened to me the correct size that I need it. In MTC, I have no idea why it opened smaller and I had to resize it to the one that I wanted. (I opened the exact same file on each software)
  3. After the file was completely cut, I started gluing them to form the box.
  4. Then, I added the ribbon and the Rhinestones.
  5. Finally, I printed the invitation on a Fine Paper and rolled it up like a scroll and also tied a bow with ribbons and a Rhinestone.

Team Girl Team Boy Personalized T Shirts for a Gender Reveal Party

For the Reveal Party of my Nephew, we decided to make Team Girl Team Boy Personalized T Shirts for a Gender Reveal Party. This was a last minute idea, so, I did not have the vinyl colors to make the shirts. We really wanted the shirts, I decided to use my WONDERFUL AND AWESOME KNK machine to make stencils and paint the shirts. So if you do not have the iron transfer to make a shirt you can still  do it.

Craft Foam Bears Make Beautiful Decoration for Valentine Basket

Craft Foam Bear Make Beautiful Decoration Valentine Basket Craft Foam Bear Make Beautiful Decoration Valentine Basket                            Craft Foam Bear Make Beautiful Decoration Valentine Basket

This time is all about Valentine’s day. So, I wanted to make some candy baskets. So I thought, “Maybe, Craft Foam Bears Make Beautiful Decoration for Valentine Basket”. And yes, I LOVE it!

The materials that we are going to use Craft Foam Bear Make Beautiful Decoration Valentine Basket are:

  • KNK cutter machine
  • Blue Cap Blade
  • Candy
  • MTC
  • Ribbon
  • Silk Flower
  • Cardstock
  • Craft foam (when you buy craft foam online, please make sure that it is 2mm. I bought supposedly 2mm and it was thinner than a paper. But at least I could use it to make the big hearts)
  • Glue gun or Superglue
  • Basket
  • Foil paper
  • Acrylic paint
  • Vinyl

Settings for Groove-e Machine:

  • Force = 50
  • Speed = 150

Steps to make the Bear:

  1. I made the templates tracing in MTC a bear from freepik. Clic this link to find the bear. To make the templates, I have to do each part of the bear in a different layer.
  2. Once, I had all the pieces ready to cut. I cut those according to the color to form the bear. So the body was brown, the nouse beige and the heart red.
  3. Then, I started thermoforming some of the pieces of the bear. Thermoform is just to preheat your regular iron and place the craft foam on top of it until it gets a puffy shape. I just thermoformed the snout, nose, belly, arm, feet, even the tail that it is attached to its body. I did not thermoform the head or the body.
  4. After that, I glued the nose and painted the mouth with acrylic paint and put it aside.
  5. Then, I proceed to paint the eyes, the ears and to paint the border of all my pieces with a darker paint.
  6. Finally, I proceed to glue all the pieces making my final project that was the bear.
  7. And my final touch was to add the phrase “Love u” using vinyl. The vinyl is a little bit hard to add it to the craft foam but when it is on the craft foam it won’t come out unless you peel it.
  8. When everything was done, I made an arrangement with candies and added the final touch, which was the craft foam bear.

PS: I am not an artist in painting. If you see the eyes and mouth are not perfect, lol. But I just wanted to show the AWESOME projects that we can make with our KNK Machines even if we are not artists.

Final Results:

Esta vez es todo sobre el día de San Valentín. Quería hacer unas canastas con dulces, Así que pensé: “Tal vez, unos ositos en foami hace una decoración bonita para las canastas de San Valentín. Y sí, ME ENCANTAN!

  • Cortadora digital KNK)
  • Cuchilla tapa Azul
  • Dulces
  • Cinta
  • Flor de seda (para algunos arreglos)
  • Cartulina

  • Pistola de pega o Superglue
  • Canastas
  • Pintura acrílica
  • Vinil

Ajustes para la máquina Groove-e:

Pasos para hacer el oso:
  1. Hice las plantillas trazando un oso de freepik. Haga clic en este enlace para encontrar el odo.link to find the bear. Para hacer los moldes, tienen que hacer cada parte del oso en una capa diferente.
  2. Una vez, tuve todas las piezas trazadas, corté estas según el color para formar el oso. Por lo que el cuerpo lo corté marrón, la nariz crema  el corazón rojo.
  3. Luego, comencé a termoformar algunas de la piezas del oso. Solo termoformé el hocico, la nariz, el vientre, el brazo, los pies, e incluso la colita aunque esta se encuentra unida al cuerpo. No termoformé la cabeza ni el cuerpo.
  4. Después de eso, pegué la nariz y pinte la con pintura acrílica y la puse a un lado.
  5. Luego, procedí a pintar los ojos, las orejas y pintar el borde de todas mis piezas con pintura acrílica un poco mas oscura que la pieza.
  6. Finalmente, Procedí a pegar todas las piezas formando mi proyecto final que era el oso.
  7. Mi toque final fué agregar la frase “Love u” usando vinil. El vinil es un poco dificil de pegar al foami, pero una vez esté en el foami no se despegará.
  8. Cuando todo estuvo terminado, hice un arreglo con dulces y agregué el toque final que fué el ositoa en foami.

PD: No soy una artista en la pintura. Si notan los ojos y la boca no son perfectos, jaja. Pero solo quería mostrar los proyectos IMPRESIONANTES que podemos hacer con nuestras Máquinas KNK aún cuando no somos artistas 😉
