Gift Box

It dawned on me this evening that I haven't shared any artwork with you this weekend.  I didn't even realize that because I have been creating all weekend!  So with the help of the Cricut Artiste cartridge, I whipped up this little box for you!

I have seen photos of this box used for cupcakes.  Now wouldn't that be a pretty way to give someone a cupcake?  What I was thinking when I made it is that it would be a great party favor box at a wedding shower or evening the reception.  I wish this had been around 22 years ago!!


Truly, it took me minutes to make once the pieces were all cut from La Belle Vie.  The Artiste cut the box, lid, butterfly, and yo-yo flower.  I save transparency pieces from packaging, so I just used a little Liquid Glass to adhere that to the inside of the lid.  I simply added some bling buttons with a little black waxy flax, a hat pin, a sparkly embellishment from the Slate Mini Medleys, and a few bitty sparkles for good measure.

I cannot believe how easy this cartridge has made it to make my packages look pretty!!  I will be entering this into the Anything But a Card Challenge which is anything goes this week!

Love the colour scheme you chose and if you hadn't said, I would never have known it was quick to make! Love the fan 'flower' on the top.
