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.)

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.

|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|
