MPS Design Team Challenge

Hi Friends!
Today I am going to share a project that is an entry for the My Pink Stamper DesignTeam Challenge. There are so many entries over there, I know Robin will have a hard time picking. Anyway, I made a gift box in green, pink, and brown using the cricut for this challenge to meet the requirements. Here's my "Star" themed gift box.

Cricut Indie Art Cart - tape cut at 2.25" , guitar cut at 3.5"
Cricut Paisley Cart - sunglasses cut at 1.5"
Cricut Gypsy Wanderings - star cut at 1.7" , music notes cut at 2"

Paperstudio Safari Untamed paper stack
Paperstudio Peace, Love, Happiness paper stack
Paperstudio Pattern Paper stack
Paperstudio Textured Card stock
DCWV Glitter Stack
Celebrate It Ribbon
Fiskars Edge Punch -Apron Lace

         I found the instructions for the gift box at Cricut Chick's Blog.
         Start with a 12x12 piece of card stock and score 4" squares, you should end up with 9 4"x4" squares scored on your paper. Score the corner squares diagonally. Then the decorating is up to you. I cut smaller squares to layer on the 4x4 squares. (cut at 3.75" and3.5") I punched the edges of my 4 main square with an edge punch,  I then cut out images and word art to match my theme using my Cricut expression and Gypsy. I attached the images and word using dimensionals and my ATG.

I can't wait to fill this cute box with goodies and gift it away! Hope you enjoyed my quick little tutorial, see you next time!

Happy Crafting,

I am enjoying all the variety and creativity! Great way to start the year! Really cute! too bad they're retiring some of the carts. I'm glad that I have them before they left. I love to mix carts too. it's really great how you did that! TFS!

We are doing a blog hop today for the three Kings day and there will be some yummy blog candy along the way! I hope you can stop by
