Printable templates and a free SVG!

I have been crafting up a storm (and the disarray in the rest of the house shows it, I had to hunt through 3 baskets of clean laundry to find a pair of socks for my son to wear to school today!) Here is my latest project:

K&Co

Pinwheel Template: Heather Bailey, Paper Pails Template download below, Paper: K&Co

Inque Boutique

I filled an old bottle with marbles to keep the pinwheel standing up. Stamp: Inque Boutique

Best part, it matches my ornaments from the other day!

The pinwheel was made using a template by Heather Baily, you can download it from her blog. I use a half sheet of double sided paper to make it. I took some shortcuts and improvised on mine a bit for example I did not use a ribbon wrapped dowel for the stick, instead I painted a chopstick green and wrapped a wire around it instead of drilling a hole through and I used hot glue to keep it together!

I bought this felt pail at Target last year and it is so cute! It is similar to the popular Baskets and Blooms die from Stampin up too. I made a print and cut template inspired by this bucket as well as an SVG version that you can cut with your cricut if you have SCAL software. Here are the ones I cut with my SVG file:  (The tag is not included in the SVG)

If you want to make the bucket out of felt you may want to cut off the fold over flap and butt the sided and bottom together ans whip-stitch it for a country look, if you plan on gluing it I suggest leaving the tabs on and using tacky glue. PS please do not attempt to cut the felt in your Cricut!

  5. […] Here is a quick teacher gift. I downloaded the vintage clip art from Vintage Image Craft, they have lots of good holiday projects there too BTW if you need a last minute gift. I took a 3″x7″ strip of red vellum and accordion folded it and stapled it in the middle then spread out the pleats and glued them on with hot glue. I added buttons with the glue as well. You can grab the printable pattern or SVG file and instructions here. […]

  11. Hi Bridget,
    you can open an svg file in SCAL buy chosing import svg then select the file. you can also open it in a free program called inkscape (inkscape.org) there you can save it to a jpg or other file that would be more useful if you don’t have scal. Hope it helps.
