Lori has a great explaination of what these files are plus the full reveal on the Clear Dollar Stamps Blog HERE.

The samples I am sharing with you are made using the CHEST CARD CUT SVG/PDF FILE.
As you'll see you can make a toolbox, toy box, recipe box, treasure box and whatever else you come up with. I designed the chest part and Lori came up with all the wonderful embellisments.
This is the card that started it all. I made it using the FATHER'S DAY stamp set as a preview sample. Then Lori and I designed the CHEST CARD CUT SVG/PDF.

I used a photo anchor for the closure. I stamped the hammer, colored with copics, cut out and glazed with dimensional glaze then popped it up. For the bottom, I used a piece of Ambrosia DP from Basic Grey and heat embossed HEAVY METAL stamp set with clear embossing powder and VersaMark. I sponged the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink Vintage Photo.

Here I used the Stamp set FATHER'S DAY for the sentiments on the front and inside. I used Basic Grey dp, and shapes from the file for the sides and top and then used screw brads.

I used individual tool stamps for the inside and Palette Inks from Clear Dollar Stamps.

I had fun with this recipe box. Can you tell? We have the kool aid house. Remember the kool aid commercials where there was a house all the kids would go to and the mother served a glass pitcher of kool-aid? Well that is my house and I make Chocolate Chip Cookies instead of kool-aid. This is the recipe I use. Yum.

For the letters....I used the letters included in the Sure Cuts A Lot program. The stamp set I used to stamp the cookies and sentiment is BAKED FOR YOU TAGS.

I just cut a smaller chest for the inside and drew pencil lines to write my recipe on. I think it is special to receive a recipe in the person's own hand writing (as long as you can read it of course. Hee Hee). I stamped the cookies as a border and colored them with Copics.
