Mix It Up With the Easy Flowers & Leaves and Stems Dingbat Fonts! Print & Cut Bouquet


Oh my gosh!  There are so many possibilities with these two dingbat fonts!  Have a look at these!!

You can use just one font, but combining the two font takes your projects to a whole new level!  Each font gives you 26 designs which you can mix and match to your hearts content. Change the colours, change the sizes and wow!  This is just so much fun!  Make your design simple or more detailed.  It's up to you.

You can find the QFD Easy Flowers Dingbat Font and the QFD Easy Leaves and Stems Dingbat Font on my Silhouette profile HERE. Just filter on my profile for "dingbat" if you're having trouble finding them.

Just to make life easier for us (and we all like easy!) I've created a printable pdf for you to download and print. It shows you which letters of the alphabet correspond with a specific design. (just like the images at the top of this blog post)

Want to see how to create the little bouquet above?  I've created this tutorial that has lots of tips if you've never done this before.

Make the Quietfire Tea Boxes!


Here's a fun way to give tea to your favourite tea lover - or make a set for yourself!

Add your packaged teabags to these adorable boxes! I’ve included a print and cut sentiment with most, but you can leave those blank and add in your own handwritten message or flavour of tea. Change the cardstock colours or mix and match with different boxes – there are lots of choices! 

These files are available on my Silhouette store HERE.   If you can't find them, filter for "tea" on my personal profile!

Here is a quickie tutorial about constructing them.  If you're receiving this as an email update, please go to my YouTube Channel HERE.
