Ruby's Mini Cupcake /Cookie Holder (aka Laney's Box)

Hi! Here is my newest box! This is where it all started one month ago, with the original single cupcake box. I thought for my one month anniversary for my blog and in honor of my little Laney's Birthday, I came up with a Mini single cupcake box. Someone on the board asked for one, so I thought it would be fun too, but I never heard back from her about it after I emailed her. So I created a minature of the original. It also has the cupcake insert so it holds your cupcake in place! You can alo use this as a cookie box. Just dont cut the circles in the insert and place your cookie on the insert. These would be perfect for a tea party, or for parties for kids! The difference between this box and the other is this is made with Plantin SchoolBook, and the scallop on the top is made with Mini Monograms. Hugs.

Peek-A-Boo-Easter Card

Hi I just finished this Peek-A-Boo- Easter card tonight. It is a three panel card that you can insert a bunny chocolate inside. Cute little treat to give away. This is perfect for lots of holidays. I can see it at Halloween, Christmas and Valentines! I added pop dots on each side of the panel after I put the bunny in and that helps keep it level inside. Carts used were George, Accent Essentials and Plantin Scrapbook. Hope you like this :) Hugs!

Bunny Kisses

Here is something new I worked on last night. It is called Bunny Kisses. You fill the Bunny's body with chocolate kisses! Made with white cardstock, he has cute bouncy feet on both sides. I use the 3-d pop dots to make them stick out a bit. Same with the nose. The flower is a punch I used and then added a rhinestone. Glue a sparkly white pom pom in the back. Carts I used were George, Plantin Schoolbook and the mouth was Alphalicious. You can draw the mouth though or use another W in another font. I did have to trim the w for the mouth nad also the leaves for the ears and pink inserts for the ears. Hopefully PC will come out with some kind of a split tool and it would help :)

Carrot Box

Hi here is the new Carrot Box I created tonight. I made it with Orange Polka Dot Paper and a green polka dot ribbon for accent. Darcie's stamp of course! You can use this for any occasion not just Easter! It can just be a triangle box as well. You can make it a Birthday Goody too! The top opens up and you can put in candy. It was fun to make. I have to go clean now, boo. Thanks for stopping by again. This is also a Monthly Kit. Join in on the fun...Subscribe today!Hugs.

Life is Like a Bowl of Cherries (Ruby's Tie Up Box)

Hi well I came up with another one. I decided to do a Cherry theme. I have way too much Easter in this page lol. I love the paper and this box is so fun. I like to use ribbon so I decided a tie up box would be a nice new one. :) Still working on it, but it's almost there. The box has windows on both sides so you need that acetate. The inside is filled with Hershey Nuggest that are wrapped with coordinating pattern paper. Thanks again for stopping by! This is part of the Monthly Kits Project. A different tag is included with this Kit.

Easter Egg Box

Okay I spent all night making this one. A Stampin' Up gal I know create one like this and I liked it so much I though how cute would that be for an Easter Goodie! But it took me forever to perfect it. I put Dove Chocolate eggs in them. They are my favorite. The inside has openings to put the eggs so the eggs sit in there like they are in an egg carton. Soooo cute! The stamp of course is Darcie's. She is my favorite and is one of the nicest ladies you will meet on this earth. She's a grandma too and you would never even know it because she looks so young. Check out here stamps they are great! I use them a lot. Well I have to create a doc file for this so I will catch up to you guys later...Hugs my friends. Oh by the way, I used acete in the window of the top, you know I love that acetate. I am going to go buy some more today. LOVE IT!

New CD Holder

Hi I have just come up with a fancy CD Holder Case. You know, you make a cute CD for a friend or soccer team and you just don't want to use a white ugly cd case? Well this is it! Create your own on your Expression Machine! This .cut file works best with regular paper and not cardstock. I use acetate in the center. You can go to any paper supply and pick that up. They even call it book cover I think. Thanks for looking!

Small Chick Treat Purse

I decided to really utilize this chick! I came up with this small Chick Purse. Done in the Cricut, I can cut 3 on one mat. I embossed the paper to get the texture. Added some dot ribbon and M&M's and you have a cute treat to give away at school!

New Bunny Body Treat Holder

Hi well I liked the Chick Treat Holder sooo well that I decided he needed a pal. Well actually my friend Julie decided that for me, but anyway here he his. The whole thing is made in the cricut using different papers and 3-d dots. The only thing that isn't cricut is the flower on the bow and that is Sandy Lion Die Cut Stickers with a rhinestone in the middle. You can fill these treat holders with jellybeans, M&M's or other Easter Treats!

Chick Treat Holder

Hi everyone! Today I worked on a new project. Chicky Treat Holders. Similar to my Bunny Treat Holders, but these are a little different. They velcro between the legs lol and have a circle tummy instead of square. I will upload a picture in the morning for you too see. This is way too fun. I wish I didn't have anything else to do but Cricut. Thanks for checking back to see whats new with me.

Cupcake Box

This is the very first Cupcake Box created on the Board and won the "Cricut Chirp Contest". Thanks for checking back today. I finished a project I was working on for someone at Provo Craft. I hope you like the cupcake box. I told you I could do it lol. It was challenging I have to say! But what fun it would be to take a special cupcake packed in its own box to to your friend for her birthday! Or even for birthday parties! I used several cartridges for this box. George, Accent Essentials, and Plantin Schoolbook.
