You are my anchor box made using the Wrap it up and Artiste cartridges.

Hello, friends!

Today's Bitten By The Bug 2 challenge is to cut a box or bag out using the Cricut and decorate it in a masculine way. I used the Wrap it Up and Artiste cartridges. I kind of wrestled with the design, but finally came up with this project. I was happy that I finally got to use my Sail Away stamp set that coordinates with the Artiste cartridge. I just love the nautical theme!

I used the Tommy paper pack.
I also used the Tommy assortment for the tiny flags.
The chevron ribbon is from Close To My Heart as well.

We seldom think of little boxes or bags for guys, so this is great inspiration! My husband loves dark chocolate almost as much as I do, so I could see giving him a little gift of chocolate in a box like this.
