Birthday Box by Steph Ackerman

Good morning, Steph here with a look at the Cricut Tags, Bags, Boxes and More 2 cartridge again.  The more I play with this cartridge, the more I like it!  It's perfect for creating just the right packaging for all your gift giving needs.

You can create any size boxes you want.  THAT is the beauty of this cartridge.  You can create a box that is all one piece (for a smaller box) or select both Section 1 and Section 2 to create a larger box. 

Since I wanted to see how big I could make the pizza box, I chose each to cut each section seperately. Using the fit2page function, I cut each section from cardstock at 11 ¼”. While that may seem large, remember that by the time you fold all your edges, you end up with a box approximately 7" square.

Cut both Section 1 AND Section 2 from cardstock. Score and fold along the scored lines.  While you can pre-score the box using the new Cricut Scoring blade before cutting the box, I prefer to use my Scor-pal, opting not to pre-score the box. Assemble box by adhering the 2 Sections together.

Cut brown cardstock 6 ½” x 6 ½” and cut pattern paper 6” x 6”. Cut a strip of cardstock 1 1/2" x 6 1/2" and place across this piece and wrap Twine around it. Adhere to the box top. Die cut 4 graduating circles using Spellbinders dies.   Now die cut the birthday cake from the pattern paper as the focal element.  The entire circle set is added to the top with foam adhesives.  Add a sentiment in the upper left with additional foam adhesives.

For the interior, cut pattern paper 6 1/2" x 6 1/2" and place on the bottom of the box.  Cut brown cardstock 3" x 6 1/2" to create the pocket.  Add a strip of yellow cardstock across the center and die cut a scalloped edge using Spellbinders dies.  Adhere to the box bottom.

Place a sentiment on yellow and brown cardstock, then adhere to the center of the pocket using foam adhesives for dimension.  Add some cash or even a gift card.  This is an awesome way to give someone a cash gift. 

Thanks for stopping by today.

Don't forget to stop by the store to pick up this cartridge and all your supplies.  Remember that shipping over $25.00 is free and most orders ship the same day.

Hi….by Penny Ward


Hello my scrapping friends…Penny here again today with a really simple card. Sometimes a card has more of an impact when you keep it simple.

Get out your Cricut, inks and glue and………………

Let’s Make a Card

Start with a card base of black card stock measuring 5 1/2 x 4 1/4. Edge the outside of card base with gold ink. Set aside.

hi 3

Cut a piece of white card stock the same size and ink until desired. ( I used Crushed Olive and Broken China). Edge with black ink.

Grab your favorite font cartridge and start applying the letters in alphabetical order until you have the desired effect for a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 inch card.

Have you discovered Cricut Craft Room? There is just so much more you can do with your cartridges at this free site. 
 I LOVE IT !!!!!!!!!

Anywhooooo……………    Ink this piece in a pretty pink, cut a scrap of black card stock just big enough to fit behind the H I  letters, and edge with black ink.

Tie a coordinating ribbon and knot.

Assemble card on an angle as shown.

hi 2

Add Liquid Pearls and butterfly for accenting.

Thanks for stamping by………..

Let's go Shopping:

Have a Mice Day – by Billie St Clair

Hi There……
Billie here with a card using the oh-so-adorable Cricut Mickey & Friends cartridge.  For the shirt & bow on Minnie, I used my Cricut Imagine and RGB colors for Disney characters (found online) to flood-fill the shapes and then cut them out.  I just love Mickey Mouse characters.  They’re so cute!!!


For the black scalloped square, I used the Cricut Elegant Edges cartridge and weaved a piece of white ribbon around it.  I added a little stitching around the card base, then added Star Dust Stickles to the dots on the patterned paper and Minnie’s eyes.  I popped Minnie up on the card front and stamped “Have a Mice Day!” from the Pink By Design Animated Greetings 2 stamp set.  Cute sentiments….perfect for these Disney cartridges!!!
