A Girly Gift Box

If you're looking for the 200 Followers Cartridge Giveaway, please click here.

I've been watching a little too much You Tube!! I get sucked into watching one video, which leads to me to another and another and another....Well, after watching this one on making paper roses using Cricut cuts, I was hooked on making them myself!! You'll probably see a few of my projects include these in the future. I already have a few on reserve for the near future as well.

We were stuck inside ALL weekend with icy weather. Also, the husband contracted a stomach bug, which was probably the result of many many hospital visits for our parishioners recently. It seems everyone is sick!! I was armed with a can of Lysol and quarantined him to the bedroom. I even made him text me if he needed something. I'm horrible, I know! I hope the rest of us avoid getting it!!

Anyway, the girls and I were going stir crazy so I took out my Martha Stewart Score Board and went to her website. I found this box recipe and combined it with roses to come up with this girly gift box:

I cannot remember what I cut this butterfly at, maybe 4"? Something tells me I cut it bigger though, and I used the Sentimentals cartridge for it. I used George and Basic Shapes for the roses as the video suggested and I used stickles for some bling. I also used a border punch for the cover of the box.

I really wish I had thicker ribbon for this! I think it would have added so much!! Anyway, I hope you like this as much as I enjoyed making it. I'm glad to say that my husband was back to work this morning and is feeling much better. I hope you are all able to avoid the nasty sicknesses of winter!! :)

I know exactly what you mean about getting sucked into watching videos! I have somehow not come across the rose tutorial yet... but I'm definitely going to look for it. This box is so fun! Thank you for sharing!

Stunning box! My daughter would love it! Her Native American name is Memengwaa which means butterfly. I may just need to make her one for her upcoming birthday! I have the same problem with watching videos! I just can't help it! TFS!
