Exploring Cricut Daily Project

It's my turn to do the daily project at Exploring Cricut. I decided not to make a card this time. Yeah, I know ya'll are in shock! I bought the Sweet Treat Boxes cartridge the first of the month and I just had to make a box.I cut #4, 14, 24, 34 and 44 on the layout. In the booklet it shows that it should be 3, 13, etc., but it is wrong. I used my Gyspy Girl, but you can also use your Expression easy enough. My box and it's layers were cut at 11.35 height. All you have to do on the Expression is to use fit to page. Make sure you take note of the size of the box and set your Expression to that setting for the layers. Take note that you will need to cut 2 of the box, because it only cuts half of it. I also used the hide contour so I could cut extra grass, flower and flower pot. I wanted an extra layer so I could pop them up. I used some Stardust Stickles on the 'sweets' on the sign and on the inside of the round window. I cut down part of a cartridge clear cover to put on the inside of the side windows. I also did some doodling with a white gelly roll pen. Remember to join our challenge. You have until 9pm EST tonight to link up a project. Also, don't forget to check out my DT Sisters daily projects. Awesomeness for sure!!! Hope ya'll like my box!!!! :)
