I decided to go through all my Cricut cartridges, from A to Z, to find Valentine's Day themed images and/or die cuts. Well, I got as far as the CTMH Artist and stopped. This cartridge has cards, cupcake wrappers, treat boxes and more! So, to start I've made this little box. Now as I mentioned it is also what I'm submitting this for the Just-A-Scrappin www.just-a-scrappin.blogspot.com design team challenge this week (anything goes using Chevron).
You may notice that the box looks slightly different than the finished product on my video www.youtube.com/sunshinecreation. I didn't like how the bow turned out so I went ahead and tied it on the bow maker, pulled the tails through the back loosely knotted it. I also cut a new piece of Chevron for the very front panel since that one was cut too small and glued on crooked.
Cricut cartridge: CTMH Artiste. This box was cut at 5 1/4 (fit to page) using smooth white card stock.
Chevron paper: was from a paper pad (probably Recollections). I cut each panel to fit the
front, sides and back of the box. Some adjustments may need to be made..front = 3 1/2 w x 3 h,
side(s)= 1 1/2 x 3 h and the back = 3 1/2 w x 4 h.
Sentiment: CTHM Artiste. I cut it out on shiny, smooth card stock at 1 1/2 inches.
Heart: CTHM Artiste. 2 1/4 "shadow" and 2 in. white.
Strip at the top: Martha Stewart punch 3 1/2" long.
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a sun shiny day.
