I have a few special birthdays coming up next week and wanted to try my hand at creating some of the 3-d boxes that are available on the new Cricut Artiste Cartridge. Here is the first one I came up with:
I filled it with a little bag of chocolates that I re-packaged from a bigger box.
I used my Artiste Cartridge along with Cricut Craft-room so that I could enlarge this pattern as big as possible. I also added in the cut out window to show the chocolate inside. The roses and leaves I added as additional decoration using the same cartridge. The paper packet I used for this is called Flirty. I didn't want to use my patterned paper from the packet until I had a chance to do a sort-of trial run so I used the solid paper from this packet and then added the patterned paper to pretty it up. I really like the way it came out and plan to make several more as little gifts to have on hand.
I must share my inspiration came from a fellow CTMH consultant. Here is the link to her blog:
I found the picture on Pinterest and decided to start playing based on hers. Hopefully I am able to inspire some of you to get out your Cricut and create something Lovely as well.
