Happy Tuesday everyone!
Here is this week’s project that I made for Decor Tuesday at Weddings with the Cricut. Be sure to stop by because everyday there is a new and gorgeous project made by the design team ladies. I have a simple flower tutorial to go along with my project today :O)
My project could be used for favor boxes, bridal shower boxes, or the bird seed containers. I had originally set out to make something to hold the bird seed, but these came out so nicely that I thought they could pretty much be used for anything.
The favor box used is actually on the Cricut Tie the Knot cartridge. I cut it at 8.5 to fit a full size sheet of cardstock (8.5X11inch). The box is easy to fold up because there are score marks cut into the pattern so it is easy to see what to do.
For the front, I cut an extra piece (the shift button gives you just the single piece and not the whole box) and embossed it with Stampin’ UP’s Polka Dots texture impressions folder. Around the edges I used Stampin’ Rich Razzleberry ink on a sponge dauber to ink the edges.
After attaching the front to the box, I tied a bow on it using Stampin’ UP Certainly Celery Satin Ribbon and attached the flower.
To make these simple flowers, you will need 3 different sizes of flowers of the same shape and a brad. I used a flower shape from the Cricut Walk in My Garden cartridge. These are cut out of Rich Razzleberry cardstock at 1inch, .75inch, and .5inch.
Using a Sponge Dauber, apply Close to Cocoa ink to the edges of each flower layer.
Here is a photo of the inked layers:
Stack the flower layers and attach them together with the brad.
