Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog
"Save the Earth" Crawl and Challenge
I am a member of the
Each quarter, members receive an exclusive Cricut Cartridge for members only.
The cartridges come in this wonderful, sturdy box!
I love to find uses for this box!
The box closes securely and can be used to hold lots of treasures!
The outside is already special! I worked very carefully to remove the shipping labels to prevent too much damage to the outside of the box.
I carefully unfolded the box.
I measured a piece of paper to fit the inside of the box.
I scored and folded the paper.
Then, glued the paper to the inside of the box.
I cut 12 inch borders from the Cricut Cartridge "Art Philosophy". These will be applied around the edges of the paper inside the box.
The flowers will be used later.
The paper is glued to the box, the border is adhered to the top of the box, and the box is folded back together.
To decorate the top of the box, I used a flower from the cartridge "Art Philosphy". I cut it to fit a 12x12inch mat using DCWV "Smooth" Cardstock.
This is the rolled flower.
I used the flat flowers from "Art Philosophy" as leaves for the flower. I cut the flowers in half and arranged the pieces around the flower.
The Cricut Circle is from the Cricut Exclusive Cartridge "Everyday Cricut".
The butterflies are extra cuts from the Cricut Cartridge "Storybook".
I had two, so I foam taped the butterflies together to give depth.
Then added color using a Martha Stewart Glitter Pen.

Circut Circle members have Circle Meet-Ups during the year.
These Meep-Ups are held throughout the USA.
Members spend time together having loads of fun ....and cropping, if there is time!
Members create 3 inch x 3 inch calling cards to swap at each Meet-Up.
My first Cartridge Box was used to create my first Calling Card!
I teach papercrafting classes and use other Circle Boxes to hold stamping supplies.
I plan to use my newest decorated box to hold calling cards for future Meet-Ups!
These are two cards that I have used for past Meet-Ups!
So, this is how I am 'Saving the Earth'...by reusing!
I hope you have a wonderful week!
Thank you so much for visiting my blog today!
Ya'll come back again, real soon!
