Today I have an easy gift you can make for your child's teacher. I think CTMH Art Philosophy is the only cartridge with a french fry box. When I noticed it on the cartridge I kept seeing it filled with pencils like yellow french fries. If you cut the box at fit to size on the expression it fits about 48 pencils. Not bad really!
|All the supplies are from Close to My Heart except for the adhesive and the pencils.|
|The papers I used are called Typeset from Close To My Heart.|
|I cut this out using the fit to page feature on a 12" x 12" mat.|
|I scored the box using my score pal.|
|Adhered the tabs using Terrifically Tacky Tape from Provo Craft.|
|The box is fairly intuitive on how it is assembled. Not complicated at all!|
|Then I decided to add a few decorative bits that coordinate with the paper. They are canvas stickers called Typeset Compliment Canvas Shapes. Love these!|
|See the ric rac across the bottom. I think I will add one across the top too.|
|These shapes are cut out using the Art Philosophy cartridge. The circle was cut out at 2 1/2" and the pinked circle was cut out at 3".|
|I decided to use this stamp set for the circle because it has a matching pinked circle called Connections.|
|This is the ink I used.|
|I added another canvas sticker. The texture is really cool. I wish the cricut would cut canvas!|
|I cut these two shapes for the sentiment at 3/4".|
|I then stamped it with the Pair - a - Phrase stamp set and black ink. If you are interested in this stamp set I will tell you how you can get it for FREE at the end of my post.|
|I used this ribbon. It is the Designer Green Collection.|
|I cut a length of ribbon and adhered the two end to the center.|
|Then added it to the box.|
|Then took another piece and trimmed the ends.|
|Then I added it to the top of the other bit of ribbon.|
|Then I added my embellishment to the center.|
|Then just add the pencils!|
