Design Challenge! (Free SVG)

First off, just let me say, "Woohoo!!" I'm so excited so many people thought they'd want to do this! And I confess, I had another reason for wanting to do this. You see, I had a very specific use for this in mind when I made it, and I'd love to see what you all can do with this. I'm hoping for some other great uses than what I had in mind. With that said, here is the plain version of the cut.

Note that this has not been put together all the way (the flaps are still hanging out) and the acetate is not on yet either.
So...if you want to participate, cut out this box, decorate it up, put goodies in it, or whatever else you can think of, and leave a comment on this post. Then, next Sunday, I'll post my version and link to your blog (or if you don't have one, let me know and we'll exchange via email or get another way to show off your stuff). I'm really hoping for some great different ways to use this...I've got brain block and can only relate this box to what I originally thought of!
K, ladies! Let's get scrappin!

I took your challenge and it was so fun. Hope you like it (http://stampin-n-more.blogspot.com/2010/02/weddings-always-make-me-cry.html) , I have another idea and maybe I will have a change to work on it this weekend. Thanks and can't wait to see what everyone does.

I would love to enter your challenge, but when I downloaded the template it came up as xml and I can't open that. Is there some other way I can get the svg version of this or could you email me the svg file?

Aloha Melinda!!!

I just want to thank you so much for sharing your files for free. I did download lots of them but have not able to cut yet. When I downloaded the latest version of SCAL2v.2.010, your files that I downloaded a couple of weeks ago looks corrupted. When I try downloading it says that there's new version available eventhough I've already have the newer version. I did send email to Craftedge and they were asking me to send the original cut file. I would like to ask your permission if its okay to send them your file. Thank you so very much. The file I think is the Cookie Tower. Thank you so very much.

Melinda Ford said...

Of course you can send them the file! I hope everything gets smoothed out for you!

Dawn said...

Melinda thanks for your sweet comment on my blog. The roses I made came from a tutorial on Tim holtz blog. The 5 petal flower I used to make it came with my SCAL prgoram.. I had not heard of Susan Blue Robot but her site looks fun.

Fida said...

Thank you so very much Melinda. I did send the cutfile to CraftEdge support last night. Hopefully they can figure what's wrong. Again, thank you so very much.

has this box been created as a cut file? Super cute design!! Loved what you all did with it.

Melinda Ford said...

I think Denise at paperpastime.com was going to make it into a cut file. I told her if she wanted to it would be fine with me!

Fida said...

Aloha Melinda,

How are you today!! I did received a response from CraftEdge support and was told that there's a bug with the new version and they'll try to fix it. Would it be possible to email you a screen shot of your file that I downloaded. And if you can tell me if that is how it supposed to look or cut? Or maybe if you can email to me a screen shot of the cut file Cookie Tower Perfected.scut cut file. My email add: jadif@hawaii.rr.com. So sorry for bothering you, but I wanted to badly to cut your files. Thank you again.
