Halloween Treat Box

Good Morning fellow crafters! This is Gina with CreationsbyGina here with a post for you today of a treat box for Halloween using Close To My Heart products that can be found in the new Fall/Winter catalogue. I love Halloween, so I am getting a good  start on all my cards and projects early!

So here is what I have made for you today using the brand new Cricut Artiste cartridge from CTMH! This cartridge is amazing!! I thought AP was great, but this one is a must have for sure! Using this fantastic cart, I cut the milk carton on page 46 at 4 inches. The rosette is on page 77 cut at 1.25. The tag is from page 33 @ 2 inches. All the papers are from the Halloween collection by CTMH called Moonlight.
Here are all the elements cut before folding and asembling. I used a 1.25 scallop circle punch for the shape to go in the center of the rosette. the Artiste cart comes with an instruction guide to help with putting the 3D items together. So easy to follow, and not much adheasive required. Nice!
Next came stamping. I purchased the stamp set Perfect Fit-Halloween with this project in mind. The images are smaller and perfect for rosette centers and tags. I used CTMH black ink and did some heat embossing of the image on the tag.
Last thing to do is finish assembly and decorations! I used the black ink again to ink up some edges, added a Martha Stewart adheasive border around the carton, and this super cute clothes pin with Frankenstein on it to close the box. A little CTMH twine, and a Jolees Boutique sticker on the tag, and there you have it! All the finishing decorative items can be found at Michaels.
I sure hope you have enjoyed looking at my project and have a look at my blog to check out the new Artiste cartridge and see for yourself what you can create! Until next time, Happy Crafting!!
