Hip Hip Hooray Flower Box with Cricut Close to My Heart CTMH Artiste

Today's hexagonal flower box comes from the wonderful Cricut Close to My Heart Artiste cartridge.  This was a really easy box to put together and the flowers themselves actually hold the whole thing together so you really don't need to even glue.
I cut the box at 9.375" to get the largest box I could.  It comes with score lines to help you figure out how to make the folds. Also, the Cricut Close to My Heart Artiste cartridge comes with a separate booklet showing how to  make all the boxes on the cartridge (bonus!).  There is plenty of room inside for things like kisses or starburst candies.  I chose to cut two flowers and then offset them.
Now, I used one of the stamp sets that come with the Cricut Close to My Heart Artiste cartridge to make the "hip-hip-hooray" sign.  The stamp set tells you exactly where the banner cut is on the cartridge and what size to cut it at.  What could be easier? No more fussy cutting!
Here is another view of the project.

Don't forget we are giving away the Teresa Collins Chic and Scary Cricut Cartridge!

I'm new to Cricut so I'm just starting to obtain cartridges. I see so many cute ideas only to find it's with a cartridge I don't own, so I'm always on the hunt for new ones and would love to have this one! As far as Labor Day plans, we will be having a cookout with good friends, good food, good wine! :-)

This is so cute, I need to try to start making little boxes like this.

No special plans for Labor Day, just hanging out with the kids and relaxing. I really like the Cricut Artiste cartridge. I am trying to save enough in my craft budget to get it, hopefully soon!

It is amazing to see all the things this cartridge can do! For soma reason the shape (w/o flower) reminds me of a Hershey kiss. LOL Labor Day means walking in the pareade and going to a picnic for my family. I think I'd like those steaks you're going to grill though!!

This cart is definitely on my wish list. My birthday is in a few months and I can drop a lot of hints with hubby. Hehehe. The box is great.. would love to make one and just to receive one. Leaving for Honolulu this weekend for my hubby's BFF's wedding and will be on the beach on Labor Day. After moving two of the kids back to college, this vacation will be for much needed R&R. Would love to win the Chic & Scary Cart as Halloween is my favorite holiday. Thanks!

I love the flower box and adore how the little stamens pop up through the center of the flower. The Artiste Cartridge is a Must Have for all of your 3D projects. Can't wait to be able to get my hands on it. Fabulous deal if I had just a little extra $$$ to get it. Quite the bargain. Hope your steak turns out yumm-o!
