Old Fashioned Ice Cream Cart - SVG Cuts DT Project


Oooh, I'm so excited to be sharing my project today!
I really enjoyed making this one, and hope that it shows!
(This is a SVG Cuts project, but for Unity FWF friends -
I have used stamps in this project, so don't go away!)

A few weeks ago, I made an ICE CREAM TRUCK and that's what inspired me to make one of these.
I thought that it would be SUPER CUTE to make an ICE CREAM CART,
where one can actually filler up with chocolate chips, coconut flakes and sprinkles in the 'faux' freezer display area,
and also to hold some cones inside the cart.
Doesn't it sound oh so cute, already?
Wouldn't it be perfect for a summer ice cream party?

Tell me - 
isn't this the cutest thing?
I'm not usually the one to 'brag' about my project,
but I was just so pleased of myself.
(Especially that garnish station part!)

Do you know where that file came from?
Yep - you guessed it!
It's from this kit, using the Curio Display Box -
and added the 'glass' by altering the canopy file from this kit.

Of course, ice cream cart needs an umbrella.
This came from this kit, only using the lid of the tent box.

Like any real cart, I made one wheel bigger than the other,
with one being on the outer and one on the inner side :)

Here's one of the sides of the cart...
and you see that handle?
It took me over an hour to decide what files to use.
I had a specific 'handle' in mind, and this was the closest that I was able to get!
It comes from using one of the crate boards with 'layered' top of the hammer pieces!

Sometimes trying to 'design' my project takes a LOOONG time.
I have a certain style in mind, 
and it's important for me to execute it the way I envisioned it.
That sometimes mean that I use different files from one kit, 
and sometimes from MANY kits.
I know that some get frustrated when I use SO MANY kits in my projects,
but that is why I use them, 
and you're more than welcome to find a similar file and use it instead! :)
I love that little 'chalkboard' sign that I made!
The 'family favorite' and the heart border is Unity Stamp Co.,
and the rest - I just used a white gel pen and I doodled it.

I also did a similar thing to the other side:

... and here again, 'Menu' is a Unity Stamp Co.,
but everything else - it's freehand :)
Where would I find an ice cream menu stamp, right?

Now, this end opens!

...where it holds all the cones!
(well, not so quite 'all the cones' as it only fits like three!)
But hey - 
it's the idea that's cute!

I also 'decorated' the back, too -

So, that's my project for today!

I hope that you like it as much as I do!

To make this cart, you will need:

Attic Treasures SVG Kit (display freezer)

...and once you have them all - 
head on over to SVG Cuts blog
for specific file dimensions and instructions.

Oh, and since I've got you here - 
Have you seen the new collection from SVG Cuts yet?

I just LOVE all the fun elements in this set!
I asked for a light bulb, a polaroid, telephone dial and a feather! 
and Mary included them in for me!
(not to mention the viewfinder - 
I've always wanted that!)
So excited to play with these elements!

Okay - gotta get back to entertaining my family from Japan, 
so see ya!
