New Cricut Project

I scan, skim, read, or glance at several blogs, and last week, this blog post peaked my interest. The little treasure chest is absolutely adorable, and I had to make it. I really didn't want to have to do all of the cutting, though (if you've followed my blog long at all, you know how much I hate to cut things out! Blech!). It was time to put my Cricut Design Studio to work for me. I used the blog post tutorial to create the .cut file for this cute little box.

Here's what I came up with. What do you think?? It's made with the same dimensions as the one in the referenced post, except that it was cut on the Cricut. I didn't have any Velcro - that I could find - so I used a ribbon to tie the lid down. I also added a hole on each side of the box so that I could tie a handle over the top.

This picture shows the side a little better. The base color is SU bright pink. The rollover top is GP white with a scalloped border of purple.

I have no idea where I got the ribbon. It's a strange texture, but worked well on this little box. I used the SU 1/16 punch to punch tiny holes in the scallops.

Oh ... and the box is filled with chocolate, of course.

Paper - SU pink and purple, GP white
- Memento Tuxedo Black

- SU (forgot set name!)

- ribbon, Copics, 1/16 punch (SU), ATG, ScorPal, Cricut, Design Studio

I'd love to hear what you think! I'm excited that I was able to make this box come to reality with my Cricut software. Sure made life easier! :)

Have an awesome night and a great, big, beautiful tomorrow!!!
