Crazy for Cricut and Creative Memories Blog Hop
Welcome to the Crazy for Cricut & Creative Memories Blog Hop! You should have arrived from Clare's blog: http://
Today I have a project created with the Creative Memories Divine Wedding cartridge and the Close to my Heart's Artiste cartridge to create the box. I created this box to hold candies at my wedding next weekend. I have used The Paper Company golden shimmer for half the boxes and Recollections ivory shimmer for the other half. I used the opposite paper for the "happily" layer and TPC blackberry shimmer for all the "ever after"s and the hearts. I spent a while experimenting with the best way to assemble the boxes. First I used a bone folder to score the boxes. I used glue to glue the blackberry layer to the happily layer. I used a glue runner and a glue pen to adhere the happily layer to the box. I then assembled the box and used a couple of glue dots on the inside flap to hold the side of the box in place. The boxes will be holding candy! Continuing with the "happily ever after" theme, I acquired some ribbon at Michael's which says "and they lived happily ever after". It was enough for the bubble bottles but not quite enough for the personalized kisses bags. I am still experimenting with another ribbon to finish those.
You can really see the shimmer in this picture:
Here are those bubble bottles:
This is the side of the box during assembly:
The glue dot is on the other side of the tab also keeping the tab secure.
I also used the CM Divine Wedding cart for my wedding invitation. This project has it's own post:
