Happy Mother’s Day!

Today, I want to share with you my design project for Creative Critterz Imaginations blog.

This adorable box would be perfect to hold a pair of earrings for your mother or it could be used to hold a special birthday present. I love how it looks like a card, but is really a box. In fact, you could even use this as a party favor. The All Wrapped Up Cartridge is so versatile!

This image is on page 10 of the manual and all layers are cut at 10.6 inches. I wanted it to look like it was lined, so I printed the card base on yellow paper. The rest of the layers are printed on Epson photographic paper. Super simple!

Here is a side view of the box.

Since there are no tick or fold marks on this cut, here is a quick diagram as to how to fold. I used a ruler and a stylus, but you could also use the Scor-Pal or the Martha Stewart Score Board. I used a black pen to stitch around the top piece, added glitter, rhinestones and then assembled the layers using pop dots. Lastly , I assembled the box using a glue stick.
