Tulip Time on Cutting Cafe

This first post with the new Cutting Cafe DT is all about tulips! We had 3 different tulip files to work with and I chose the Tulip Shaped Card Set for the tulips and the sentiment.

I have an even more appreciation for my Silhouette as the cord died and I made my project the old fashioned way...cutting by hand. So thankful the images were easy to cut. Went a different direction though as I planned to use the basket tulip file, but there was no way I was cutting all those squares out by hand. LOL  {side note: called Silhouette and they are sending me the part for free!! YAY!} second side note:{sentiment was added after I had taken this picture below}

I had these fun little baskets that I had purchased from a tractor supply store (not sure why they were there, but loved the bargain. Ü I just covered the sides with designer paper and then cut the tulips and mounted them to the front. Then I found these fun Little Debbie Tulip Cakes, so I will put one of those and some other goodies into the box for a fun little gift. (BTW, I also see they have butterfly cakes too, so will be doing something fun with them as well.)

Since it's all about tulips, I thought I'd share a pictures of my tulips growing right now (and yes I see I need to clean out the dead leaves. LOL!

And as always, be sure to stop by the blog tomorrow and leave a comment for a chance to win 3 files of your choice.

I am linking this up to DL ART
