Hi its Pam here from hookedonkrafts and today I want to share with you some wonderful purses that I made using the Pretty Purses collection fromSVG ATTIC. These are so easy to make and are perfect for gift ideas and can be use for any occasion.

I made mine using lovely bright colours for the summer but these could be used as treat bags for Halloween or even at Christmas time just by changing the colours you use. 

All the embellishments are included in the collection and with so many designs to choose from your can make a different design to suit the person who is receiving the gift and would be perfect for a few chocolates of and unusual way to give a gift card.

Thank you for stopping by and hope you have fun browsing the SVG ATTICcollections.

Hello SVG Attic fans this is Pam here from hookedonkrafts . I am so excited today as this is my very first post as a Guest Designer for SVG Attic. I was so thrilled to be asked and I knew straight away what my first project was going to be :) I always have a full wish list in the SVG Attic store so it was just a matter of click, purchase and away I went.

For this project I used the SDS Watering Wishes Kit and the flowers are just perfect to re size to go inside the watering can. I used some really bright papers that I had in my stash and even the small daisies on the handle were made with the same cutting file as the larger flowers.

At the moment my Mother in Law is not very well and in hospital so this was perfect to take her as a gift as real flowers are no longer allowed.

Thank you for popping in today and why not pop straight over to the SVG Attic store and have a look at all their gorgeous collections there are to choose from

Love my Crciut




Morning all to a lovely sunny morning in the North East of England it makes you feel like summer is just around the corner. Last week I had an amazing time at a Cricut Retreat with the lovely Melanie Heaton and the company and hotel was fantastic, I am counting the days to the next one in October. We made two projects so I thought that I would share with you one of them that I made over the four day retreat. For this we used an MDF Template and to make the flowers we used the Cricut Cartridge Sophisicated I think this is one of my favourite cartridges.

Tutorial for Exploding Box

I have recently made the above Exploding Box and had a few people ask me for a tutorial. I adapted an SVG file from SVG Cuts to make this and Leo and Mary are happy for me to share this with you.

To make this you will a good weight card I used 300 grm and a quick grab glue. So many of you have said that you love the papers well they are from a new CD Rom from Crafters Companion called Times Gone By.

Firstly you will need the SVG CUTS file Summer Street Carnival. I used the Carnival Tent box for this project. First I cut out the bottom and bottom sides as shown below, cut this out twice once for the base and once for the lid.


To make the base of the exploding box you will need to cut it into panels as shown also cut off the side tabs but leave the tabs at the bottom as this is what you need to secure to the base. Do this with both pieces. This is what is should now look like.

Place your glue onto the tabs for this I used Collal Tacky Glue from Crafters Companion and stick the tabs to the bottom as shown below. At this stage if you want you can cut another bottom and stick it over the tabs on the inside this will not only make it look neater but also give it more strength.



You need to make the inner layer of the Exploding Box the same way but slightly smaller.

Now to make the lid. Use the second bottom and bottom side that you cut early. Trim the sides by taking off 1.75" as shown on both pieces. They should now look like this.


Glue the two side tabs together and fold in the small tabs at the bottom

Attach the bottom to the tabs and as below add another one on the inside to strengthen.

For the vase in the centre I also used an SVG file from SVG CUTS called Mom' s Garden Gift and reduced the size. For the flowers I just used several ones from my Cricut library.


Thanks for stopping by and hope that you will follow me 😃😃
