Gorgeous flower box made using the Artiste cartridge.

Hello, everyone!

Today I have a very cute flower box that I made using the Artiste cartridge. This is my hands down favorite cut on the cartridge. This little beauty would be the most perfect wedding favor box or baby/wedding shower box. All you have to do is change the colors you use and this is perfect for any classy even you might have.

I used the Flirty paper pack from Close To My Heart.
A quick tip: Use double sided paper for the base of the box. That way the flower bits (stamen) that come through contrast.
 Thank you so much for stopping by!

Don't forget we are giving away a Pirates and Mermaid Lite Cartridge this week - see how cute this is!

I don't send out Halloween cards per se; more like "fall/autumn" cards. I like to reconnect with people who I may not have talked to in a while.

The flower is beautiful. Would work as little favors for a dinner party too.

Love the Flower Box craft, wish I had that a few years ago when my daughter and I were hand making party favors for her wedding reception. They'd be perfect for that... or just gift favors at a family gathering meal like Thanksgiving, in place of place cards. LOVE IT...

valerie said...

What a lovely floral box. My favorite flower is the peony.

Crop4life said...

What an absolutely adorable flower, I love ctmh and the endless possibilities the artiste cartridge has to offer. My favorite kind of flower is a lily, although I am not especially fond of its fragrance. Which is why I tend to decorate my home with paper lilies created with my cricut machine. I love decorating for the holidays, especially Halloween and Christmas. I am a busy mom of 5 yr old twins and six yr old and 2 adult children along with being a wife mother and grandmother I still find time to scrapbook with my other scrap moms and make occasional cards to honor those I love and appreciate.
