December CC Magazine Contest

Hello once again.  Here is my entry for the Cricut Circle Magazine.  The details for the challenge are as follows:

Contest Rules:
You must create your gift bag or box using a base from one of the many Cricut cartridges available. Embellish it to fit your style! Please use at least 4 Cricut cuts in your design and incorporate something from one of this month’s magazine sponsors. (You can see their ads in the back of the magazine.) Please… only one entry per person. Entry deadline is Friday, December 3rd at 11:59 pm. We will pick a 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winner this month!! 1st place winner will choose from the Wrap It Up, Paper Lace or Quarter Note Cartridges. Then the 2nd place winner will get the next choice and the 3rd place winner will recieve the final cartridge. We hope that is incentive enough to get your creative juices flowing!!

For this challenge I've decided to create a small gift box to put a necklance in.  You can just see the gold chain peeking from the plastic "window" above.  Below is a picture of all the cuts I used to assemble this box.

Cricut cuts used:
* box base (Wrap It Up) welded with 2 scalloped ovals (Straight From the Nest) to make 2 "windows"
* 2 ovals (George and Basic Shapes) cut from old Cricut cart blister pack, then embossed with the Snowflakes CB folder to match the snowflake design on the box
* 2 Picturesqe cart tags welded together to make tag base
*Picturesque tag cut for the front of the tag
*snowflake from Picturesque cart
*tag title from Winter Woodland
*tag title blackout from Winter Woodland

I had to incorporate something from one of this month's Cricut Circle magazine sponsors and I chose to use my Imaginisce irock tool to attach the blue Imaginisce gems onto the snowflake on the tag.  I had fun making this box!  Thanks for stopping by!

This is super adorable! Love the windows idea! I was saving my blister packs too and wondering if they would cut on the cricut or emboss. I even found them in my trash can the other husband thought the were trash :)
Good luck on the contest!
