Exploring Cricut - Bag Box or Tag Challenge

Hello Monday! It's time for another fun challenge from Exploring Cricut. This week we are asked to create a bag, box or tag and include 1 ribbon in your project.

I created a box from Tags, Bags, Boxes and More and had warmer weather in mind when I chose this particular cut.  I used my Gypsy to size the box on a 12 x 12 mat. I also hid all the cut marks. It would be nice if the marks only scored the paper, however, it gives a cut that I don't like on the finished product. I used my Martha Stewart scorer to crease the areas that need to folded.



This is what it looks like after it is done on the Cricut. The flower pieces have a slit in each of them and the flower slides together. I placed the gold flower on top of that with a glue dot to give a little more dimension. The gold flower was created using the tag image on the same cartridge. 


Recipe: 

Box and Flower - Tags, Bags, Boxes and More 9.12", 265"

Hope to see your great creations too:) Thanks for stopping by!

I love that cardstock you used-great for any occasion! The gold flower on top with the twine and button is the perfect accent.

Fabulous choice of paper. I haven't made a box yet, so thank for the instructions. I ordered the new Cricut - and guess what - it scores!!! Yeah.

Awesome job here.

Super cute-great paper choice! It looks fun, cheerful and happy!

Definitely NOT enjoying this new round of cold weather!!!! I'm telling you, the warm and sunshine made us all feel SOOOO good! I see why all the older people go to Florida for the whole winter. We had so much fun that it was hard to come home to real life again! I think I have post-vacation depression, LOL!
