Hello, hello, hello!
It's another post for The Cutting Cafe and as you guessed, it's all about Christmas!
Regina let us pick our choice of file for this one and I couldn't resist using several, so let's get started so I can show you how to make your very own Vintage TV.
I am in love with anything vintage and when I thought of how to make a TV, I knew that if I used Regina's Configuration Box file, I could make these little ornaments come alive.
Below is the box that I used and then using my cutting machine I designed the "face" and "frame" of the TV.
Old televisions had legs and so all I used was a triangle piece that I rolled, glued, colored and sized and then adhered to the underside of the configuration box or TV.
The antenna base is a little shaving off a Styrofoam ball and a toothpick cut in half and colored black with copics for the antenna ears. The dials are just circles cut out and several layered on top of each other for depth. The gingham bow is sporting this wonderful sentiment also from Regina's store called, Christmas Bag Topper .
And you see a little tease of that gorgeous holly that also comes from the Christmas Bag Topper.
Let's take a look at the other one now.
Now you can really see that gorgeous holly.
The Merry and Bright Sentiment is also from this set.
And there you have it...
2 Vintage TV's (the shows playing come from The Tim Holtz Festive Ephemera Pack), but these wouldn't be possible without the incredible Configuration Box from Regina's store!
So stop on in for all your last minute Christmas needs for stock up for next year!
All DT projects are posted at The Cutting Cafe Blog on the 7th and 21st of each month. We'd love for you to visit and be sure to leave a comment for Regina. She selects one lucky person to receive 3 FREE files of their choice!
Hugs and Happy Crafting,
