CRICUT ®: WHAT WAS USED

OTHER MATERIALS NEEDED

  • 65lb Paper in 2 colors (your choice)
  • Diamond Dust Glitter
  • Mod Podge Glossy
  • Pigment ink stamp pad
  • Patterned Paper
  • Bakers Twine
  • Brads (to secure flower)

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

Cut 8 cake boxes from Sweet Tooth cartridge at 5 1/2" Assemble box, lids and slice pieces. I used patterned paper slice pieces on the white boxes to give the slice a bit more depth.
Brush each lid on the outside of the lid with Mod Podge and sprinkle Diamond Dust Glitter - allow lid to dry before handling again. (do one lid at a time)
When the lids are dry place each lid on a box and paint Mod Podge on the back of the box just below where the lip stops sprinkle the back of the box with Diamond Dust glitter - Set aside to dry.
Making the Strawberries - Cut at least 10 strawberry boxes at 3 1/2" from Red paper and cut the leaves from Green paper from the Spring Cottage cartridge. Assemble the strawberry boxes by scoring the box and folding the tab secure each box with your favirte adhesive. Run Baker's Twine through the holes at the top, add the leaves. If you want to put something in the box, like a Chocolate Kiss or a piece of candy remember to add it before adding the leaves to the top. I decided my boxes were just decorative so I tied the twine so the box could not be opened.

To give the Strawberries a glossy look - Mix about 2 ounces of Mod Poge with the Diamond dust glitter- paint each box with the glue/glitter mixture. I let mine dry on a piece of waxed paper. (Tip: I saved several medicine cups from cold medicine these were perfect for mixing the glitter/glue)
To Make the paper Flower - Cut at least 8 flowers that have 5-8 petals. I used the Daisy2 from the Walk in my Garden Cartridge or you can use a scallop punch. To soften the paper I sprayed each petal with water and crumpled it up. I opened each petal and used a small stamp pad to ink the edges. Layer the petals in a stack alternating each petal between the petals below it. Once all 8 petals are stacked use your piercing tool to poke a hole through the center, insert a brad to keep the flower together. Cut out a 3/4" circle and glue to the bottom of the flower.

Shape the flower by pulling up the petals on the top layer and do the same for all of the other layers.
