Here is my project for this challenge:

Project # 415 of this year

I couldn't decide which photo I liked the best, so here are all 3. :)

And here are progress pics (these are always fun):

  • ARTIST Cricut Cartridge used for box. (I LOVE THIS CART & THIS CUT!) Box cut is on page 68 and cut @ 11". My friend, Kathi of Kards by Kathi, sent me a couple of these cuts. Thanks, Kathi! BUT... I will have this cart in my own little hands soon. If you would like to get more information on how to purchase this cartridge, contact my CLOSE TO MY HEART Consultant, Lucy, HERE

  • Decorative papers area all from the Hobby Lobby paper pack, "Persnickety".

  • Black cardstock (for each end of the box inside and outside) 
    • 1 1/4" x 2" (cut 16 times)
  • Pattern paper (for each end of the box inside and outside) 
    • 1 1/8" x 1 7/8" (cut 16 times)
  • Black cardstock (for middle section all the way around) 
    • 2" x 3 3/4" (cut 4 times)
  • Pattern paper (for middle section all the way around) 
    • 1 7/8" x 3 5/8" (cut 4 times)
  • DESIGNER'S CALENDAR (Cricut cart) Ribbon page 37 cut @ 2 1/2"

  • GIVE A HOOT (Cricut cart) "HOPE" p. 49 cut @ 2 1/2"

  • Pink and White Tulle was ordered from Amazon and stuck all the way through the box length so it would hang out the ends. I thought this gave it a nice, soft feel to the project.
  • Pink dotted ribbon was tied to both ends to secure box closure and keep tulle from sliding out of the inside.
  • Green and Pink pearls are from Martha Stewart
I hope you liked my project. I'm really enjoying the cuts on this ARTISTE cartridge! Make sure you contact LUCY to get this cart. It's so worth every penny!
Come play with us @ Cut It Up Challenges!

Great project Janis- I like how the Artiste cut has a scallop edge the TTBM2 does not have the scallop. I love it.
