The Easiest Box Ever


Isn't this little box just too cute? And so easy you won't believe. All you need is Tags, Bags, Boxes and More and a Cricut and you are good to go. I used the new K and Company 12x24 patterned paper and went for the largest cut I could fit on the paper.It doesn't matter if you use just your Cricut, CDS or just the plain cricut this cut is perfect on the cart.
I have everything loaded on my Gypsy Woman. The final cut produced a 3" square box.
After cutting be sure you score and fold your cut.


I wanted to see how it went together and decided I did not like the white peeking out of the flower on top.
So I just took a minute and inked the back of the flower so it had more of a finished look.
While that was drying, I decided I better pack my bag of tricks as I needed to get to work. My lunch buddy is covering for her boss so I have been spending my lunch hour working on projects. I grabbed the left over paper so I could fancy cut a couple of flowers and stickle them.
It is getting a little snug in there!
And the little pouch is over stuffed..... but the good news is I can scrap on the run.
I stickled the center white and liked the way it looked so I continued.
See the difference in the flowers and it took less than 5 minutes.
Pulled the box out of the bag and in less than 2 minutes it was a box.
I used pop dots on the flowers.
This is how it looks from the top, so pretty you really don't need to even decorate.
Now wasn't that easy? Less than 5 minutes its cut and another 5 minutes it is done and decorated. This is a must have cart for everyone as we all have those last minute gifts that we want to look special! And you can even pre-cut a few in different color and leave folded flat like I did in my bag. 2 minutes after that point is less time than finding wrapping paper and ribbon!

WOW! Super cute gift box! I think TBBM is the greatest cart, too. Especially with the Expression. Used to get frustrated at the small size using baby bug.

Love this box! Thanks for the inspiration! It is a luscious summer gift box...

TBBM is a great cartridge and in the hands of people like you - oh la la la - the gift box becomes a artwork - a gift in itself.
