Flower Shower

Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a great weekend.

Today's "Challenge Me Monday" over at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog is "Flower Shower." Use at least 3 flowers on your project and, as always, it must include a Cricut cut.

For today's project I have created a gift box. I had seen something simular out in the blog world but cannot remember where. There are just so many inspiring blogs out there that I some times have trouble remembering exactly where I have seen projects I have liked.

I used a double sided paper for this box so it would be pretty inside and out.

Here's a close up so you can see the dimension of the flowers:



And one more...


Here are the details:

Tags, Bags, Boxes, and More ~ Box
Gypsy Wanderings ~ Scalloped circle to create window
Kate's ABCs ~ Flowers
Echo Park Carstock ~ Life Is Good
Ranger Distress Ink ~ Tea Dye
Acetate for window ~ it's actually recycled cartridge packaging
Pop Dots for the middle flower

Head on over to Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog to see what my fellow designers have created to inspire you today and then join us in the "Flower Shower!"

I am adding this to Emma's Throwback Thursday Challenge over at My Creative Time. The challenge was to make a 3D item using an older cartridge. Tags, Bags, Boxes, and More definately qualifies!

Happy Crafting!
