Today's letter is R
Hi Guys! Its that time again for the letter of the day over at My Cricut Craft Room.
I recently got the tag bags boxes and more 2 cart and I had to use it on a project. I found the cutest recipe box on page 32. At first I didn't realize that I needed to cut it using the box 1 and box 2 sections and I just cut the shape at 8". Well to my surprise I ended up with a cute little box.
The purple is cut in one piece at 8" and the green is the same box using the box1 and box2 cuts @8"
I just wanted to show the differences in the size.
For my box I cut it out of Recollection Garden Harvest Kraft cardstock pack. Like I said at 8"
after assembling the box which is quite easy I decorated it with ribbon and roses from the flowershoppe cart.
I cut the roses at 2", 2 1/4 and 2 1/2
I inked them up with tim holtz worn lipstick and dusty concord. I added rhinestones to the center.
I used glue dots to attach them to the lid
Here a few pics of the box and flowers
I think that I will keep this box on my desk to add business card to. It is the perfect size for them and instead of a recipe box I have an organizer for business cards.
Thanks for stopping by. Please leave me comments and let me know what you think.
