25 Days of Gift Ideas: Poinsettia Boxes

Need some quick and simple gifts?  These are for you!  

Using the CTMH Cricut Artiste Cartridge makes gifting a snap!  For these boxes I used the CTMH Pear & Partridge Paper Packet (X7162B), Cranberry Cardstock, bling from the Boutique Assortment (Z1763) and our fabulous self-adhesive Silver Shimmer Trim (Z1799)!

The boxes were cut on Artiste: <X><3D Object> at 2.5" (pg62) and the poinsettias <Z><Shift><Accent3> at 1.5" and 2".  I used the bone folder to score the petals to provide a little dimension, and 3D Foam Tape to layer the flowers on the box.

The silver trim works as an embellishment and adhesive to secure the bottom of the box (regardless of which side you decide to make as bottom), then a bit over the top to tie it all together.
