Cricut Holiday Gift Boxes

Good morning, I hope you are all at home enjoying time with your families.  I have a few more last minute projects to inspire you until the current Bitten By the Bug 2 Challenge closes January 4.  I created several boxes to hold my thin mint cookies.  I gave them to my coworkers for the holidays.  

I am just in love with the pie box despite the issues I had.  The glitter paper did not cut and score as well as I would have liked.  It was very thick.  I did manage to clean up the cuts but there are some random creases in the lid. I thought putting a fancy flower on top would distract.  


Then I went crazy.  I used the negatives snowflakes from the box below since they were from the same paper stack.  I layered them on top of some sheer blue flowers.  I added a few floral picks from my stash, icy berries and wispy tiny tan leaves.

Another view, this snowflake was an intricate cut for a glitter embossed thick card stock.  It ripped in a couple of places but with the help of glue and a the backing layer, I think I managed to put it back together without notice.
