Thanks, Toots!

Hi everyone and Happy Thursday!  I have to tell you that since, I’ve started playing with the Cricut Artiste cartridge- I can’t stop!  It’s made me fall in love with my Cricut all over again!  And, isn’t it nice to see more Cricut projects on my little blog?  Remember the cute rainbow card set I made with magazine holder, or how about that gorgeous and intricate Card,  or the Halloween Treat box?

Well, this little project I am about to show you seriously took me 10-15 minutes to make.  With the easy to read booklets that come with this cartridge, cutting everything out and putting it together is a snap!  This is saying something because I am used to using my gypsy.

Ready for the project?  I decided to make the popcorn box, because who doesn’t love a popcorn box?  And, you don’t have to put popcorn in it either- you could put candy in it, cookies, or even socks! 🙂 Anything is more fun in a popcorn box!

I wanted to use the  ‘Thanks, Toots!’ sentiment from the Sweet Grams 2 stamp set– so  I cut out the coordinating Cricut shape that comes with the popcorn box, and stamped it with Cranberry ink. I added a strip of yellow ribbon to the back, and then filled ‘er up with tootsie rolls!

The popcorn box cuts out as one piece- or one color and the booklet tells you to cut it out at 4 inches.   This is what it looks like with just one color.

As I was putting it together, I wanted my box to have the traditional stripes- So I cut out an identical box in white cardstock.  Then, I lined up the scallops on my paper cutter, making sure it was straight, and cut straight down.  Then I just trimmed off the bottom, and glued the stripes onto the box, every other scallop. 🙂 It was super easy!  So, think about all the different color stripes you could do!  You could even do them in your sports team colors!

I think it turned out pretty cute!!
