It’s not hard to find the perfect gifting solutions for Father’s Day (or any day, for that matter) with files from Simply Crafty SVGs. Jan has selected 3 files and added some additional details to make each one a little unique. The Tool Caddy, Tie Gift Box and the Dad Easel Card all work well with each other when you use a fun digital paper collection such as, Gentlemen Folk, from NitWit Collections. Let’s take a little closer look at how you can add that special touch.
Tool Caddy – add a coupon book using some print and cut images and add your coupon details on the back. Fill the caddy with a favorite treat and add a fun word strip to the front details of the caddy.
Tie Gift Box
The Tie Gift Box is the perfect size for a tie or some dress socks. Add a belly band, word strip AND a tie clip to finish it off.
Dad Easel Card
And the Dad Easel card is a fun and easy to cut file. Jan added an extra layer of lettering with no changes to sizes, just off-setting them slightly for that layered look. Add another word strip from the graphic file and you’ve got the perfect card for that someone special on Father’s Day.
If you haven’t made this teapot, the Round Teapot is the perfect centerpiece of a fun tablescape to host a Spring themed tea party or Mother’s Day tea. Jan is sharing her version with us today. Then, be sure to add a couple of cute cups made using the Lots of Hearts Treat Cup.
The cup handles are from the round teapot file and are sized down to fit the cup. Be sure to add some saucers and several trays filled with goodies. You’re now ready to spend a lovely afternoon or evening with Mom and a few friends
The printed panels of the teapot and the cups are made using glossy photo paper. Jan wanted the teapot and cups to have a porcelain look. The top of the lid was also made using the photo paper. Add a bit of gold leaf or using a liner paint brush and paint a little gold on the panels for some additional highlights and trim. For more details, check out Jan’s blog.
…And since the teapot is a box, you can add some special goodies as a going home gift for your special guest.
Tea Party Treats?
The large and small trays are from the Serving Trays file. Jan found a printable miniature dollhouse wallpaper to use for the panels. The trays are a perfect addition to your first Spring Tea Party. Don’t forget your favorite teas or drink mix packets.
The larger tray can be filled with a few mini cupcakes, cake balls, bitesize cookies or other treats in your favorite Spring flavor.

Once cut, the Easter Egg box is a very quick to assemble. The box panels are cut from the same color as the box base, the added details include foiled leaves (from FunLurn.com) and the flowers on the upper panels are made using some ink and a cotton swab. The two colors of the ink, create a soft, subtle look and the finished pattern almost looks like purchased printed paper. Bonus: It only takes a few minutes to add those flowers to the panels.
For the bottom panels, Jan used a basket weave embossing folder… and swipe the raised areas with the darker of the two inks used for the flowers on the upper panels. Lightly ink the edges of the panels before adding them to the egg base. Choose any pattern to decorate the panels…. That’s half the fun!
For the inserts on the inside of the egg, the grass, eggs, chick and bunny were resized to fit inside the egg. Measure the egg bottom opening from side to side to determine fit. Elements and placement will determine the size and height. Adhere them as desired on strips of cardstock and attach the strip to the inside of the egg box bottom with glue or strong tape.
There are so many different ways you can decorate the Easter Egg Box, inside and out!
If desired, add some “grass” and a few jellybeans or chocolate in the back of the egg bottom. Add the top and your Easter Egg box is ready for gifting! Additional details for this project can be found on Jan’s blog. Besides the Easter Egg Box, there are several other products you might be interested in.

After recently viewing the original, animated film of Alice in Wonderland, Jan created this Wonderland version using the Victorian Top Hat file. Roses, hearts, feathers, a pocket watch and more are featured in this Spring themed Wonderland hat design.
This project is easy to recreate.
Assemble the hat side, brim and top as shown in the assembly video using the link above.
A strip of white tulle is used in place of the hat bands. Feathers and hearts were tucked into the tulle and used as additional decoration. A few more hearts were sprinkled around the brim of the hat.
The rolled roses are from the hat file. Jan added some yellow stamens to the center of each rose with a drop of hot glue. The pocket watch is a resized version of the Round Candy Box. The watch measures about 1 ½ inches in diameter and is about ½ inch deep. Jan used hot glue to secure these elements to the hat. Add additional elements to complete the theme of a Wonderland themed hat.
Check out the library in your software.
Using shapes from the SCAL Library, select the rabbit ears and hearts.
Jan’s addition of the rosette is easy to replicate using a horizontal rectangle and vertical score lines at regular intervals across the rectangle.
Enjoy your make.
