Stacked Boxes with Art Philosophy

Happy Thursday, my crafty friends! So excited that it's my turn to be a guest on SHE'S A SASSY LADY and CRICUT IS CLOSE TO MY HEART!!  Be sure to stop over at both of these blogs to see lots of fabulous projects you can make with CTMH products and so much more!

Today, I decided to make one of the boxes on the CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge that I have been eyeing ever since I saw the project idea in the previous catalog!  Here is my completed set:

Now for the details! :-)

First I cut the box out on page 21 of the cartridge booklet at  11.12", 8.18" and 6.41".(Font Layer - shift) Then I folded on the score lines, burnished the folds and inked the edges.

I'm thinking I can use these boxes to hold some mini cards or gift cards. Here are the boxes stacked and unembellished:

I then added some lace ribbon and some tags cut from Art Philosophy and stamped with CTMH stamps. The tickets are also from Art Philosophy and I printed them on my Cricut Imagine. Of course, I had to add some stitching and then I was done! After making these, I can see them as a centerpiece on a table for a party!

Thanks for stopping by today! Now, go pop in your Art Philosophy cartridge and make some boxes of your own! :-)

What a great project and yes I agree they would look nice as a centerpiece for a party. I haven't tried these boxes yet and after seeing them I'm just going to have to give it a try. Sure would make nice Christmas gifts filled with notecards. Thanks for sharing with us today at She's A Sassy Lady..

Jen - these are fabulous. I really love how you have stacked them. I had totally forgotten about the AP boxes (doh!) and they will definitely be great for little sets of cards. TFS
