heart purse

Today I took Kristi's advise and pulled an old cartridge and dusted it off and came up with this purse treat holder.
I used the tags bags boxes and more cart.
You can make this any size. Mine ended up at about 4 inches when put together.
I filled it with Valentine candy corn in a little cello bag.

Hugs and Kisses

Hello everyone!!! No video today... :( This was made with a box font I have and SCAL (Sure cuts a Lot) Its a program you can purchase to work with your cricut machine!
It will let you cut any font on your computer and this font I have contains over 50+ boxes!!
If you are interested in the font I will sell a copy of it for 5.00 each through paypal. Just email me. There are so many boxes on it! You'll love it! You must own SCAL for the font to work.
Your cricut will cut it and you simply fold it together and glue it.

"love" pops sucker treat holder

I am going to try something fun! Lately on all the blogs all the focus seems to be on all the new cartridges which is great, but there are alot of us that aren't able to get them right away! So I am going to work with some of the older cartridges and see what I can come up with thats new and exciting so you will want to dig out those cartridges!

So the next few projects I am going to work with the New Arrival cartridge! Who says it has to be used just for Baby! Today I made this cute and simple, yes so simple its scary! LOL, "love" pops sucker treat holder! Cute Huh!?

Here is what you need:
New arrival Cartridge
Acetate (if you prefer, you don't need it)
Suckers ( The ones I have I got at Dollar General 2 for $1.00 They are a large sucker)
Thats it~
Now for the instructions...
Select the card feature 1 button
Size should be at 3 1/2
Select the stroller on the keypad and cut!
Fold and add acetate if you choose too. There is the base!
Next cut out the word love at 2" cut this out twice in 2 coordinating colors, you need the heart to layer. Adhere to front of card base. Add ribbon, add sucker and I closed it shut with 2 glue dots!

Simple and super cute! This would make a great class treat!

It was brought to my attention that I forgot to tell
you that you have to
push the shift key then the stoller key.
Sorry if I confused anyone!

Purse Treat Bag

Sorry to post so late today! It's been a little crazy, I am preparing to host a crop in Memory of my Beautiful Niece Kayla.

So to my project! I made this adorable purse treat bag to be given to
my Nieces for Valentines Day.
For the purse I used 2 pieces of Moxxie Mini Diecut Cardstock, I trimmed the points off the bottom to make the purse sit flat. If you don't have access to the Die Cut Cardstock you could use the shapes that are similar to this on the Storybook Cartridge. Find a box pattern of your choice or if you would like mine please leave a comment and I will get it to you..I forgot to take a picture of it and its hard to explain in words!! The handle is a 1" x 11" piece of cardstock. Adhere both the die cuts to the front and back of box, add the handle and embellish to your liking!

Hope you like it!
