Hey everyone!!

This is my project I had planned to share with you yesterday, but I didn’t get the green light until after I had already went to bed for the night (I went to bed early)! LOL  Anyway, so we are going to still count this at Day 24, and later today I will be back with Day 25’s project AND a Blog Hop Winner!!

If you have noticed, I have a new button under my design team section. I am a WEEKEND WARRIOR over at the Creative Critters Imagine Blog. I was absolutely honored that Tammy chose me to be a part of the new Imagine Blog. Each month, I am going to be sharing one extra special project over there.

Today, I am going to share with you another cute little treat box using your Imagine Machine. These could be made for co-workers, chidren, children’s teachers, holiday party favors, and more! These are so simple to make, but they really have a wow factor!

I used my Cricut Imagine and the Best Friends Imagine cartridge, along with two Originals cartridges: Winter Frolic (for the tag shapes) and Don Juan (for the letters). More details are below.

The tutorial for the box can be found by clicking here!. I designed these little goody boxes to hold 4 packets of cocoa mix.

The tag shape is from Winter Frolic. I used the Tag function key and used the shadow layer for the tag. This shadow tag is repeated multiple times throughout the cartridge. I cut the patterned paper layer at 4inches tall. Then using the exact same shape, I cut the white layer at 4.25inches tall.

The little girls were cut at 3inches tall from the Best Friends Imagine cartridge. I didn’t change any of the colors on any of the layers for these ones.

And for letters for the names, I used the Don Juan cartridge. The first letter in each name was cut at 1.5inches tall. Then the rest of the letters were cut at 1inch tall. I also cut out the shadow for each letter using white cardstock.

Here are some more close up photos:

Finally, to finish off the boxes, I used some ribbon! People always ask me how I tie my bows so I have made a bow tying tutorial for you!! Click here to see my bow tying video!.

Here is a view of the back:

Now, I don’t know about you, but my family always does something special for the dogs and cats in the family (and we even give little goodies to the pets of our close family friends. So using the same goody box, I just changed out the tags for pet images from the Best Friends cartridge. Then I filled the little cello bags with animal friendly treats!

All of the measurements for the cuts are exactly the same as the tags I made above. The cat and dog were both cut at 3inches tall.

When it gets closer to Christmas, I will be baking our dogs homemade doggie biscuits, but for now, I put Beggin’ Strips into their goody bags.

(We don’t have cats, but imagine cat treats in the bag above, wouldn’t that be darling!?)
