Oh, what fun is this wild and fun camping box card designed by Jana! Who thought you could combine a flamingo, a Yeti and an Airstream all on one card. She used the Mountain Camping Box Card SVG File to make this little gem. Click here to read all about it!
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
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.
If you love camping or RV’ing, have you checked out our camping designs?
Our newest is the Tent Camping Box. It is rather large at @ 7″ tall when assembled. Entire design can be resized to smaller size, as desired, within your software.
As you can see, the entire tent comes off to reveal the bottom box.
I chalked around the sides of the tent pieces and used the following embossing folders to create the textures.
Tree top: Cracked embossing folder from Sizzix Tim Holtz Alterations collection Tree trunk: Wood Grain embossing folder from Darice Tent door & windows: Embossing folder from Sequence Set from Lifestyle Crafts
We also have the Tent Trailer Box. Finished, it is about 6″ wide and 4.5″ tall. I used to camp in a tent trailer and I just loved the idea of making this box.
The top of the trailer just gently sits on the bottom box. It lifts off so it can be used as a gift box, if desired.
Here is another version of the Tent Trailer shown with the Christmas Tree Delivery card from our Christmas Box Card Set. This was done by designer Susan Manion. The card comes with a Christmas tree, but she cleverly modified the design to include a bicycle in the back of the truck.
For this design, I used the following embossing folders.
Doors & windows: Embossing folder from Sequence Set from Lifestyle Crafts Curtains: Tiny Bubbles embossing folder from Cuttlebug Bottom Trailer Side: Thin Lines embossing folder from Darice
We also have the Mountain Camping Box Card. As with any box card, it folds flat to easily slide into an envelope and send. This card fits into a standard A9 envelope. If you do not have one, download the Basic Envelope Set SVG set of standard sized envelopes. See the description for more information.
Here is a Christmas version of the same card.
For those interested, I used the following embossing folders.
Mountains: Cracked embossing folder from Sizzix Tim Holtz Alterations collection Snow Peaks: Dot Background embossing folder from Darice Trailer: Lines and Circles embossing folder from Sizzix Tree Top: Crackle embossing folder from Darice
