Cricut Merry & Bright-Pink & Gold challenge at Bitten By the Bug 2

Good morning and welcome to my inspiration for the latest Bitten By the Bug 2's Pink & Gold Glam Challenge! What a great out color combo, it was such fun working with it.  I created several cards but the project I chose to showcase is the great little box from Merry & Bright.  Of course I had to glam it up a bit!

I cut the box as large as I could while still using a 12x12 mat.  I used a manual die to cut some of the foil paper and glued it on all four sides of the lid.  There were several tiny pieces to the cut that I chose not to add, I liked the simplicity of the two long cuts.

I also cut four different color light bulbs from 'Tis the Season for each of the sides of the box.

The bulbs were super easy at the 2x3"ish size I used.

The completed box measures approximately 4x4x4 with the lid being slightly larger.
