Recyled Prima Box

I didn't think I was going to be able to play along, but here is my entry for the Cricut Circle Weekly Challenge #9.

We were supposed to incorporate the color black somewhere in our project and recycle or repurpose something, plus use at least 2 different Cricut cuts.

For this project I've decided to use one of my Prima Flowers containers that looks like a pilow box.

 First off I snipped off the plastic part that hangs on the top of the empty pillow box.

Here are the Cricut cuts I used. 

These two cuts were NOT cut using the Cricut.  Just two pieces of scrap I had lying around.  the top one is punched with a Martha Stewart corner punch.

I embossed these two Cricut cuts with the D'vine Swirls CB folder, then inked the sides.

I attached the square cut on the backside to cover the writing on the box.  I then assembled the rest of the tag for the back of the box, which you can see at the top of this post.

To finish off the box and to cover the flower image on the front of the box, I assembled the 3 flower cuts together after crumpling them first to give them some dimension.  I also used foam mounts to adhere each piece together.  I attached a pink button in the middle.

Cricut cuts used:
*tag shape - Just Because
*square - George and Basic Shapes
*3 flower cuts in varying sizes - Picturesque
*rose silhoutte - Picturesque
*"Happy Birthday" silhoutte - Once Upon a Princess

Thanks for looking!
