Fall bag tutorial made using the CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge

Hello, friends!

I hope you are all having a great week so far. We are getting ready for school to start around here next week. There is always so much to do and so little time to do it!

 Today I have another bag/box tutorial using the CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge. This particular box is seriously cut and super simple to assemble.

The paper, stamps, and ribbon are from Close T o My Heart.

The paper I used is from Close To My Heart and is called Dreamin'.

I cut the box out at fit to page and I believe that turned out to be 11 1/2".
This is the inside of the box after it had been scored.
I decided the box needed something to go on the outside, so I cut these using the ART PHILOSOPHY cartridge at 2 1/2".
I also cut out these leaves at 1 1/2".
This is what it looks like assembled.
I glued it to the front of the box.
As you can see, it comes together really easily, by connecting with the pre-cut flaps. The other two sides have slots so that it comes together with ribbon.
Then this is what you get, but it just needed one last thing.
I cut out this tag and assembled it to add that little bit extra.
This tag definitely needs some ink!
This is the ink I used to stamp the sentiment onto the tag.
This FABULOUS sentiment is included on the Pair - a - Phrase stamp set that is free this month from Close To My Heart with a $75 or more order. I will have more details on this stamp set below.
I added the tag using some twine.

Ok, now about that stamp set that I used. I mentioned it yesterday and wanted to remind everyone again that if you spend $75 or more between August 15th and 31st you will receive this double stamp set that has a retail value of $35.90 for FREE! Now those of you who are going to order, please make sure you actually add it to your cart when prompted. Otherwise it will not be added to your order.

Not only will you get the stamp set shown above, but you will also get a Typeset stamp set for free if you purchase the Stamp of the Month for only $5.

To break it all 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!

YOU SAVE ==> $55.80

Such a cute way to give someone a little thank you gift! TFS

Adeline E. Brill said...

I made 30 of these for favors and wasted sooo much paper. Any suggestions??BUT they were fun and fast to do!

Debbie (from Sugar Land) said...

this box is so cute! For the poster above (Adeline) using the Gypsy, Design Studio, or craftroom you can cut so many other things from those corners - tags, flowers, phrases... Even now, once already cut, you can use the scraps to cut again by positioning your cuts on the areas that still have paper.

The box is adorable. Thanks for all the tutorials. Just had to laugh about the double stamp set give away. Usually "a day late and a dollar short" fits my life but this time I was actually too early when I ordered the Art Philosophy set - oh well!

Zuby said...

I love that patterned paper, but I can't find it anywhere on the CTMH website. Am I missing something?

Unknown said...

Zuby, just click on the word 'dreamin'" I have it set up to link to the paper on my website. Almost every time I highlight a word with color it is linked. Just FYI.
