Festive Friday at My Cricut Craft Room

Hey, everyone! Today is my first post as a member of the My Cricut Craft Room Design Team!! Today is Festive Friday and the theme is 'Past Halloween Items'. Last Halloween, I was just starting to learn how to put my Cricut Expression to good use and I didn't have many cartridges. My hubby had also just bought me my Gypsy and I was having fun playing around with both machines. I came up with a really cute idea that can be one of two things: a treat box or an LED tealight candle holder!

First I cut out two Jack o' Lanterns at 3 inches. Using my Gypsy, I cut two more without the face features.That way I can layer them without the yellow showing through the face features. (You could also use the shadow feature, but I wanted my pumpkins to mimic carved pumpkins.) 

Flip one of the pumpkins to have them match when the box
is completely.

Then, using the Cricut Craft Room Basics cartridge, I created the box piece for my treat box wielding together a bunch of rectangles.

This shows the different triangles I used to piece my box together.
This is what it looks like welded together for me to cut.

After cutting out my pieces, I scored the box piece. It looked like this.

This is what it will look like after it is folded.

Add glue or double sided tape to each of the tabs.

A better look! ^.^

Next I started putting the box together.

What it will look like inside once it is put together.

I used a yellow Bic marker to add highlights.

Add a handle and please all trick or treaters!

Instead of a handle, add an LED tealight for some
spooky fun!

Voila! Yummy!
