Hello! Rachel back again with another project for the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog. This weeks challenge is #155- Color and Shape, use Yellow and a Triangle. I decided to make a Birthday Hat Gift Box!
I'm using my favorite Chantilly papers for this project, I just love these fun colors!
The assembly booklet has instructions on putting the box together on page 28. I decided not to glue the bottom flap closed in order to use it as a little gift box.
I placed double sided tape to the edge and bottom of the box and folded it together.
Then I wrapped my ribbon around the bottom of the box, starting from the middle front edge.
I cut off the ends once it went all around the box and met in the back.
I took the banner shape and stamped Happy Birthday with the coordinating stamp set. I used Pear Pigment ink to stamp this onto Buttercup cardstock. Super easy!
It comes out perfect every time since you can see right though the acrylic stamps!
I inked the edge of the banner with Pear dye ink since it dries faster.
Then I attached the banner to the box with 3-D Foam Tape, and assembled the rosette and attached it to the top of the hat. I added a bow and sprinkled some green sparkles around for fun!
The bottom still opens, so it can be used for a gift card or some candies or small gift.
I hope you'll play along with our challenge this week! Make sure to take a look at all the other fun projects submitted by the design team members HERE for some inspiration.
