This week I will be doing a different tutorial everyday showing you how to assemble and decorate the bags and boxes included on the ART PHILOSOPHY cartridge. However, first off I wanted to tell you that starting today there is a NEW special that Close To My Heart is running in tandem with the bonus stamp set pictured below.
Starting today not only do you get the free 'Typeset' stamp for any order over $50, but if you spend over $75 you will also get a double stamp set!
That means that if you buy the ART PHILOSOPHY cartridge you will get the three stamp sets that come with the ART PHILOSOPHY bundle, but you will also recieve a TYPESET stamp set, a DOUBLE stamp set, and then you can get the STAMP OF THE MONTH for $5. That is a total of 7 STAMP SETS for just a little over $100! This is perfect for those people who are new to stamping and need some stamps to start with or even those who just want to build on what they already have! If you were looking for an excuse to get this bundle here it is!
Now If this comes off as totally confusing to you let me break it down:
Between August 15-31, get your Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge for $99.00. The Cricut Art Philosophy bundle includes:
* Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge, Three Stamp Sets (retail value of $17.95 each), & Three Dimensional Element chipboard sets (retail value of $4.95 each)
- Because you spent over $50, you can now purchase the August Stamp of the Month for $5.00 a value of $17.95!
- Now you also qualify for the Typeface mini alphabet set a $6.95 value for FREE!
- Since you spent over $75, you’ll also get the Pair-a-Phrase double D-size stamp set a $35.90 value for FREE!

Now on to the tutorial...
This is the box that I will be showing you today is from the ART PHILOSOPHY cartridge. It is the Chinese take out box, which is one of my favorites. It has so many uses and there is only one other cartridge that has anything similar. However, that box is far more complicated to assemble than this one. In fact, this one is SUPER simple once you know how!
|I used just plain white cardstock from Close To My Heart. The ribbon is from Papertrey Ink and the stamps are all from Close To My Heart.|
|This sentiment along with the heart on the box are from the DOUBLE STAMP SET that I mentioned earlier in the post!|
First, you need a good adhesive. I like to use Terrifically Tacky Tape from Provo Craft.
When I cut the box this is what I got.
Then I scored the the box using my Score Pal.
I used the Tulip red ink from Close To My Heart. It is my favorite shade of red!
black ink to stamp 'I love you' from the same stamp set.
and repeated the process on the opposite side.
Then using the Terrifically Tacky Tape, I taped the box as shown.
liquid glass to the heart. It gives it a nice shiny look!
Then I used the DOUBLE STAMP set Pair a Phrase to stamp the sentiment. One really great thing about this stamp set is the sentiments! Also, how many seasons it covers.
WHEW...We're done! I'm so sorry this post was so long. I hope you guys got a lot out of it. I will be back tomorrow with another box/bag tutorial! See you all back here then!
Have a MAGICAL Monday!
