Paper Crate Project Summer 2017

Hi Everyone,
I got so excited when I saw a sneak peek of the new SU crate die that I knew I had to make a digital cut file for one.  Sure I like dies but who could be limited to one size. I also did not like the way the die was a 2 piece cut.  The seams show on both front and back when assembled.  That's just wrong in my book,  Not that I am a favor box snob but lets face it I am.
I had so much fun making these.  I filled them with sea shells and sand.  The sand is from the Jersey shore.  And you know us Jersey peeps, we are all about the shore!  I so see these filled with shell shaped chocolate for a beach themed wedding.  A little sign with the couples name and date. Now that's a favor!  Here is a picture of 4 that I made.  I think I will make a few more as well.
OMG! I love them!!!
If you want to try to make one here is a pic of the pdf with instructions.
I printed the paper with my Canon G2000 and all the cutting was done with my Cricut Explore Air2. I loved designing the paper as much as designing the file.
I have the file available as a PDF and an SVG.  You can find the downloads here on my mediafire account:
The PDF is here:
and the SVG is here:
Feel free to resize this file to your needs.  Please leave a comment as they really make me happy! I appreciate when people link back to my blog.  Please don't sell the file, just share share it as it was meant to be shared not sold!!
Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by,


  1. I love your take on this favor box! So cute. Thanks for sharing your hard work. I'm glad you're feeling up to crafting.

  2. Lysa you are amazingly talented!!! I love these crates and I love your idea of a beach themed wedding with them. You should have been a wedding favor maker or planner my friend! So kind of you to share your file as well! I can't believe you are talented at designing your papers too, like I said you are amazingly talented lady!! Now tell me how are you keeping that Jersey Shore sand in those crates without it coming out?! I love how these crates look on your table! Can I come and rub elbows with you? Maybe your talent will rub off on me. lol Sending love and big hugs to you my friend along with my prayers, Brenda
