Holiday Goodie Gable Box

Hello fellow crafters! Looks like we all survived 12/12/12! :-) Thank you, Sheila, for another opportunity to share a project with all of our fabulous readers! You can also view this project on my blog: JAVA JEN CREATIONS and over at CRICUT IS CLOSE TO MY HEART.

Today I chose to make a cute gable box from the Close to My Heart Artiste cartridge. If you don't already have a CTMH consultant, feel free to visit my website:!

Here are the details:
This box is located on pg. 37 of the cartridge handbook and on pg. 7 in the instruction book.
I sized the box on my Gypsy at 4.41"H.
The tag is also on pg. 37 and is sized at 4"H.
Paper is from the Simple Stories Handmade Holiday Collection (which I LOVE!)
Megan Elizabeth Sparkle Lightz
"Merry & Bright" are cut from a clear overlay in the Simple Stories collection.

This collection might just be my favorite Holiday set!

Some views of the box in progress:

Ready to decorate

Love these Sparkle Lightz! They can be purchased at Above Rubies Studio.

All put together! I think this box would be great to gift some homemade candies!

Thanks for stopping by today! Take the time this season to enjoy your families and friends!

Have a blessed holiday season!

Such a lovely box! If I could only have 2 Cricut cartridges, they would be Artiste and Art Philosopy! I do not sell CTMH, but I would buy a third Cricut CTMH cart is a heartbeat! This beautiful box is just one example of the beauty of these cartridges! Thank you for sharing the details!

I agree with the first poster, Mama C, that Artiste and Art Philosophy are the best cartridges ever and if I could only have two, it would be theset two! Thanks for sharing the box!!
