Close To My Heart Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge Fall Leaf gift box

Hello, everyone!

The fall project I posted on Tuesday reminded of one of my all time favorite projects! I know that some of you may have never seen it, so I thought I would post it today!

I am still having a huge giveaway over on my other blog, so make sure you check it out! Click here => Courtney Lane Designs

Today I have another bag/box tutorial using the CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge. This particular box is seriously easy to cut and super simple to assemble.


The paper (now retired), stamps (now retired), and ribbon are from Close To My Heart.

I cut the box out at fit to page and I believe that turned out to be 11 1/2".
This is the inside of the box after it had been scored.
I decided the box needed something to go on the outside, so I cut these using the ART PHILOSOPHY cartridge at 2 1/2".
I also cut out these leaves at 1 1/2".
This is what it looks like assembled.
I glued it to the front of the box.
As you can see, it comes together really easily, by connecting with the pre-cut flaps. The other two sides have slots so that it comes together with ribbon.
Then this is what you get, but it just needed one last thing.
I cut out this tag and assembled it to add that little bit extra.
This tag definitely needs some ink!
This is the ink I used to stamp the sentiment onto the tag.

I added the tag using some twine.

 October Specials (only 7 days left!)

Back by popular demand, I am giving away one E2 Cricut machine to a lucky customer. To be eligible to win, you have to place an order on my Close To My Heart website this month. That is it! I will draw a winner November 1st.




The October stamp of the month is a total must have! It is called Very Merry Christmas and coordinates with the Artiste cartridge, so if you have that cartridge you are going to want to snatch this up! It makes tag making a total snap!

As always, this stamp set (retail price of $17.95) is only $5 with any order of $50 or more!





 Now don't forget that you can still buy the fabulous Artiste and Art Philosophy cartridges, so if you have not taken the plunge yet, come on in the water is great!

Have a great day!

we did a similar box, only so small it held 1 fun size candy bar, in our mostly weekly card class. All the supplies were CTMH, but we cuttlebugged it with swirls, added 3 leaves and a sentiment and then closed the top with burlap ribbon. Not my design, but I can show it to you here later. yours is lovely as well.

cute box! Making my own boxes are one of the main reasons I bought a cricut.

Nancy Vasquez said...

As a school administrator this box is something that is a dream come true. It really can be used for any ocassion, holiday, or just because. The greatest joy I receive when I give crafts like this is when the person ask you, "Did you make this?. That makes it all the more special. I really love this box. Thanks for sharing.
