Stacked Boxes

Happy Thursday, my crafty friends! So excited that it's my turn to be a guest here on Cricut is Close to my Heart!! (By the way, I just LOVE the name of this blog!) :-)  I'm also a guest over on Sheila's blog - SHE'S A SASSY LADY today too so be sure to stop over there and check out the many awesome projects there!!
Today, I decided to make one of the boxes on the CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge that I have been eyeing ever since I saw the project idea in the previous catalog!  Here is my completed set:

Now for the details! :-)

First I cut the box out on page 21 of the cartridge booklet at  11.12", 8.18" and 6.41".(Font Layer - shift) Then I folded on the score lines, burnished the folds and inked the edges.

I'm thinking I can use these boxes to hold some mini cards or gift cards. Here are the boxes stacked and unembellished:

I then added some lace ribbon and some tags cut from Art Philosophy and stamped with CTMH stamps. The tickets are also from Art Philosophy and I printed them on my Cricut Imagine. Of course, I had to add some stitching and then I was done! After making these, I can see them as a centerpiece on a table for a party!

Thanks for stopping by today! Now, go pop in your Art Philosophy cartridge and make some boxes of your own! :-)

What a great project and yes I agree they would look nice as a centerpiece for a party. I haven't tried these boxes yet and after seeing them I'm just going to have to give it a try. Sure would make nice Christmas gifts filled with notecards. Thanks for sharing with us today.

Love how the boxes look with the inked edges! And I don't have to pop Art Philosophy in because it pretty much is used on every project I do these days, so it never comes out! TFS!
