hearts and beads decoration

One of the ladies who come to Cricut Craft Club nights showed us how to make this. She had made some in white cardstock which looked really lovely handing on the Christmas tree. I thought that it would make a lovely decoration to hang and one could even tie a friendship / engaement / eternity ring on the bottom. Just a thought!! It is made from hearts cut out and threaded on fine line and a bow at the top. not a very good pic sorry. My beads are blue and white to match the cardstock.

Valentine Easle cards

Envelope (bottom pic) is made using the envelope punch board.

fun box for special occasion

I made this box from the CTMH Artiste cartridge. I had cut the lion and the 'wild about u' and was wondering what to do with them when I saw this box which just looked so much like a circus tent!! I cut it in red and then CAREFULLY cut the white stripes for the top of the 'tent'. I threaded bakers twine in the holes at the top and then through a small piece of a straw. when you pull the piece of straw up the 'big top' opens and can be filled with goodies. Instead of glueing the side of the box I pierced it with my 'pokie stick' and laced the bakers twine up and tied it so that it looked like the side opening of the circus tent.

Box Card - special occassion

I made this box card from a pack of paper I had picked up on a shopping spree. Used Cricut cartridge Create a Critter 2 and thought it made a lovely Valentines card. It has an 'envelope' on the back that can be opened and a special message inserted. It is 6x6 when folded down so fits nicely into an envelope made on the 'envelope punch board'. The pics are of it closed, open, and the back.
