14 Days of Love Blog Hop

Hello My Crafty Friends,

 Here are some projects that I've put together for the Valentine's Day PTA Fundraiser at my children's school.

Five Sided boxes
I was Inspired to make these two five sided boxes after watching PootlesPaperCraft
 YouTube video Stampin' Up! UK 5 Sided Box Tutorial I also used the Cricut Doodlecharms Cartridge for the hearts and scalloped hearts.

Cupcake Boxes

These cupcake boxes were made using one sheet of 8 1/2"x11" sheet of 110 lb. cards stock. The bottom colored lining is the center piece of the scalloped circle. This is so the oils from the cupcake won't stain through the box.

Gift Box
I made this gift box using one 8 1/2"x11" sheet of card stock.

Rose Box
This marshmallow rose box was made using the Cricut Elegant Edges Cartridge, MaymayMadeIt Simply Spanish Stamp Set, and a 12"x12" sheet of card stock.

Treat Boxes

I made these three treat boxes using peachy keen stamps, and the 
Cricut Tags, Bags, Boxes and More 2 Cartridge and a 8 1/2"x11". 
Note:  I recommend using the options to use two sheets of card stock because it is easier to assemble.

Mustache Card
This is a 5 1/2"x8 1/2" card. The inner sentiment for this mustache card was made using my cricut expression and adhesive foamies. I had created a stamp. The mid piece of the sentiment was very intricate, so I had to modify it using bic markers. I also added the "?" manually.

Bookmark Note Cards
I made these bookmark/note cards using the gift card holder measurement on the WeRmemory Keepers Envelope Punch board. I also used the ovals and scalloped oval Spellbinders dies, Scrappy Moms Stamps, Hero Arts Stamps, and CraftSmart Stamps.

Personalized Cricut Sentiment Cards
This is a 6"x6" card. I created this sentiment using my cricut expression. I used different fonts and flipped the sentiment. I then added zig two way glue to the letters while they were still on the cricut cutting mat. Then while using my clear ruler I aligned a white card stock that measured 5 1/2"x5 1/2" over the letters. I pressed down and waited a few seconds for the adhesive to stick and pulled up the card stock. Then presto, instant perfect placement of each letter.

This is also a 6"x6" card. In this card I used the leftover card stock from the previous sentiment I had created; waste not want not.

Thanks for stoping by.
Have a blessed day!
Lots of Hugs
