paper bowl

Cutcardstock’s featured theme this month is white and ivory. Anytime I can create with the Stardream line, I jump at the chance. It is my favorite cardstock, the shine is just beautiful. This month I created an SVG file to make a paper bowl.

Hi, I am Janet from Try it – Like it – Create it, and I created this free SVG file to share with you as a part of the CutCardStock design team. Do you love working with SVG files? As a graphic designer, I love creating SVG files, and I will be sharing projects, including SVG files, with you twice a month.  


To make the paper bowl I used Quartz Stardream in 8.5 x 11″. Cutting this file on a Cricut Maker, I set it to cut 100# cardstock with a pressure setting of more.

Here are the cut and scored shapes from the free SVG file. The file will make for a small container about 3″ wide.


I used a smush technique to paint one side of the cardstock. Paint and water were placed on my glass mat and the cardstock was then smushed into the colors. It made a fantastic dendrite pattern.
