Here is a nifty little project that we made at my Christmas Crop on Saturday! One of my customers shared the idea with me and I created a template in the Cricut Craft Room (by welding and overlapping simple rectangles) to make it even easier to use in the future! And I'll even share the file with YOU so you can make as many of these cuties as you like!
I love the peppermint striped paper we have in our Sparkle and Shine paper packet! So festive! Open this up and you will find a bottle of Bath and Body's Candy Cane Bliss PocketBac Anit-bacterial Hand Gel! Coordinates perfectly with the candy cane paper!
The inside sentiment is from the Frosted Workshop On The Go Card Kit! LOVE how well it works with this paper and project! I also used one of our tiny velcro dots to close it. And just a bit of our Ruby Chevron Ribbon for a handle!
You can decorate the front and insides however you want! I chose a simple route and just added a wreath and bow. For the leaves I used a punch. (I should have used the holly leaves on the Cricut Art Philosophy!) For the bow, I used our Red Shimmer Trim and added a metal flower to the center!
Here is the Craft Room File if you want to try your hand at this project! It doesn't have to be just for Christmas - it could be ANY theme, ANY time.
(Once you cut out the template you may have to trim it down to 10 3/4", then turn it sideways and score at the following lengths: 1/4", 1 1/4", 2 1/4", 3 1/4", 6 1/2", 7 1/2". On the outside tabs, score a 1" segment where the tab meets the box to fold over to create box. Fold on all of the scored lines to create card with box!)
Here are the materials I used to make it:
Sparkle and Shine Paper Pack
Red Shimmer Trim
Base and Bling Floral Accents
Ruby Chevron Ribbon
Frosted Card Kit stamp set
