As I slowly continue to get my family get together tasks done I finally get to share with you the treat boxes I decided to make for the kids to take home afterward.
I still have to buy the favors but I couldn't wait to share the boxes. They are turning out fabulous if you ask me and I am so happy I used the Gold Glitter cardstock again and was able to try the awesome silver Bright Foil too. They are giving my boxes such an elegant and glamorous touch it's almost a sin giving them to the kids, lol.
They both cut perfectly, I have to add. The phrases and stars were cut very small and I had no problems with either one. The rest of the colored cardstocks I used are a mix of Basis and Pop Tones, also from Cut Cardstock.
I used the Tags, Bags, Boxes and More 2 Cricut cartridge and cut the boxes at 7-3/4" wide and after assembled, they come out to be around 2" squared by 1-1/4" tall, not counting the small handle. Perfect for some small treats for them.
The first pic to the left is the Cricut Design Space virtual mat showing the box flat prior to cutting and you will notice how easy they will be to score and assemble. The second pic shows a mark where you need to add the adhesive and the third pic shows after the flap is closed. You can also see the pretty fold it makes on one side of the box.
(The blue permanent runner adhesive tape works very well and the store carries the green version).
A few pics to show some of the embellishments: the out of this World was cut at .81" in high, yeap, that small and look how nice it looks, the Party word was cut at .53" tall, wow! and the shooting star at 1.15".
I also cut the boxes in the gold glitter cardstock and the silver (Bright Foil) cardstock. Did I mention how nice these cut in the cricut? The glitter one I had used in my last project and I knew already how it cuts but not the silver one. Well, it is as great as the glitter one. Loove them both and you will too. The Bright Foil is almost like stainless steel. Awesome finish!
They are both on sale this week, if interested.
This is the end of my monthly projects for Cut Cardstock.
