Christmas Gift Box and Tag

Hello Hello Hello!!!! Hope your week has gotten off to a great start. I've been doing some cleaning and plurging and then headed to my crafty room to get some creating done. I've made a gift box and tag to enter into the Bitten By The Bug 2's new challenge. It is to make a gift bag or gift tag using a Cricut cut. I needed a gift box for the gift I'm giving my Secret Sister at Church for Christmas. Our Christmas party will be the great reveal and I wanted to present her gift nicely. I bought Tags, Bags, Boxes & More 2 not realizing that I needed the scoring housing and tip to do the score lines. I finally got one so just had to make my box from this cart. I made the lipstick box on page 42. I cut it at 7 inches. I cut the box that was one piece. I first did it in white and then did it with pattern paper. I glued these together. This gave my box a little extra strength and gave me the white inside that I wanted. The pattern paper that I used is from the Paper Studio from Hobby Lobby. It is some of their open stock. That's all I did for the box. The tag is from the same page. I did use my Gypsy Girl so I could seperate the back and stripes so I could do different colors. I cut the tag at 3 inches. I then used Glossy Accents and Clear Rock Candy Stickles on it. On the back I stamped the 'To' and 'From' using the Christmas Joy stamp set and 'Merry Christmas' using the Tiny Tidings stamp set. Both of these are from Mary-Cardz TV Stamps. I think Mary has sold out of the Tiny Tidings set but she has Christmas Joy in stock. I finished off my tag by adding some Maraschino Twine from The Twinery. They have two new twines that I just got in the mail today. Platinum Shimmer and Gold Shimmer. Can't wait to use them. Pretty!!! No, I'm not a spokeperson for them. I just love their twine. I have to say that I'm sorry about the first picture. I wanted it as crisp as the second one, but realized that with the box opened, that just wasn't gonna happen!! And yes, that is the gift I'm giving my Secret Sister. She is a very special Lady. Hope ya'll like my gift box and tag!!!! :)

Hi Sharon! Just stopping by to say hi. Cute little box. I've had this cartridge for a while but didn't really make anything with it until last weekend - it was fun making a few of the boxes. I will have to try this one soon!

Take care and have a wonderful holiday season if I don't get back before Christmas!

Sharon -thank you for visiting my blog today and for the sweet comment -and I want to say a Big Thanks for giving me that information about the Gypsy and how to connect the image with the cartridge once it is saved - I have been searching through manuals sometimes to connect the images and often the Cricut Search site does not fit my search - one has to really know what word to put in to get that to work in my opinion. Thanks a bunch - I will try your instructions the next time. That was a blessing! Enjoy our weekend!
