Buckets of fun! May not be safe for work?
The first project that I did was for a raffle game we are doing at my sister's baby shower next week. This was my first time making my own .SVG files and using Sure Cuts A Lot. It wasn't the easiest thing to do, but it wasn't the hardest. Had some help from the forums over at svgcuts.com. Great resources and very friendly people. I made the images of the rubber ducks in Adobe Illustrator.
The Second Project was for a co-worker. She just had to put down her dog and I wanted to do something nice for her. I never know what to say or do in these situations and I tend to use humor as a way to cope with a lot of stress in my own life so I thought I would make her a f-it bucket. The idea actually came from Amy Sedaris, in her book I like You: Hospitality Under the Influence. When I saw it, I loved it and sometimes you just need to say fuck it and what better way then with chocolate? I really liked how this turned out and can only improve them the next time around. I highly recommend using Sure Cuts A lot it opens up a lot of possibilities as you can see ;)
Look for better pictures in the future, these were just taken with my phone.
