Since this is the first stop in the Blog Hop, let’s get started with a Father’s Day Side by Side UTV box.

The Side by Side UTV SVG comes with square flags, but I wanted something different for this box. So, I created 2 triangular flags you often see on 4WD toys.  This is easy to create within any software with basic shapes. I used triangles to make the flags with a union command from the software I was using, eCal 2. I used the Print2Cut feature to add the text.  I cut and painted 2 skewers (like you get in the dollar store) black to wrap the flags around.

I also created the Happy Father’s Day label using Print2Cut in eCal 2, which is similar to the Print and Cut features in other software, like Cricut Design Space and Silhouette Studio. Then a melted perler bead, compliments my crafty sister, to the middle of the steering wheel, for the horn. A few black rhinestones form the middle of the tires.

I wanted to break up the color in the back, so I added a strip of black and white striped washi tape.  I used white glitter cardstock for the front headlights and metallic red cardstock for the back lights.

As you can see, the back open up for a place to add a gift card or some Father’s Day goodies!

This is the last FIRST post of a new designer for the 2018 Simply Crafty SVGs’ Design Team.  This masculine birthday card was created by Christi using both the Christmas Tree Delivery Box Card and the Presents Gift Card Holder. Since the Christmas Tree Delivery SVG comes with a blank insert to add anything, she added a birthday present to the back of the truck.  Click here for additional details!

Tent Trailer Box Glamper by DT Kimberly Sisco

Tent Trailer Box Glamper by DT Kimberly Sisco

Simply Crafty SVGS Tent Trailer Box Project

Hello Everyone! It is my pleasure to share another Simply Crafty SVGS design team project with you. As you tell from all my post that I am a cardmaker but I was ready to step outside my comfort zone and tackle a 3D project. When I saw this Tent Trailer Box I knew this was the project for me and I wanted to make a little Glamper for my craft room.

The Tent Trailer Box measures 6″ wide x 4.5″ tall x 3.5 depth and the top comes off so you could make this a gift box. This came together rather quickly and was much easier to do then I anticipated because a step by step instructions are included. I used Cricut Design Space to cut my SVGS; you could also use a Brother Scan-n-Cut or a Silhouette. Here are some steps and techniques I used to bring my Glamper to life.

Bunk or Trailer Top
Trailer Bottom

These are the bones of the project. I used American Craft cardstock because it is a nice strong cardstock. When you import your SVGS you have the option to use the dashed score lines or the solid score lines. I chose to used the dashed score lines (which are tiny dash cuts) because there is a lot of folding in this project and the dashed score lines make folding a dream. Remember in Cricut Design Space you will need to attach the lines to the images before cutting (tip of the day).


I love inking the edges on my images I use because it creates more depth and texture. Above you can see which inks I used. It is subtle but when you put it all together you will be able to tell the difference and your project won’t look flat.

Next I added the trim and screens all around the trailer top. And you be able to see the inking against the white.

After adding my screens and the door top I added the roof. I love this polka dot paper!

Then I added my tires, panels, door bottom, and hitch. I just love this mix of patterns.

Finally, I added the lanterns and curtains for a finishing touch along with a little flower bling. Thank you so much for stopping by and letting me share my design team project with you. If you have any questions, please, leave me a comment and I would love your thoughts on my Glamper.

Be sure to stop by Simply Crafty SVGS and check out the awesome projects you can make.

Happy Crafting!
