Welcome to our December Blog Hop featuring any 3D item from our exclusive Artiste Cricut Cartridge. In this Hop you will find that each consultant has created a 3D item of their choice from the Artiste, we were told it could be anything as long as it was a Christmas theme.
If you have just hopped onto my blog, welcome to the Cross Canada blog hop! I am the official first stop on your hop. I hope you enjoy all the wonderful projects at all the stops in this hop.
Lately I have seen a ton of those stacking boxes that make really cute toys and ornaments around. I decided to make a Christmas ornament using this stacking box style but instead of just a plain square box I thought it would be fun to use the hexagon shaped explosion box (which can be found on page 48 of the Artiste cartridge handbook) for my project today. I might even put some family memories from this Christmas inside the 3 explosion boxes after Christmas and gift it to one of the grandparents... we'll see though since I tend not to return to projects and instead dream up new ones. LOL
Here's the box all closed up:
Here it is when you first open it:
You really don't need to collapse the hat box down like the picture above show.. the outer box fits it just fine assembled (the circle brim of the at is permanently glued to the lid for the hat box so you don't have to try to get it lined up every time you put it together):
Here it is with the 4 boxes stacked on top of each other:
Hope you enjoyed my project today.
Your next stop on the Cross Canada Hop is Michelle S of My Creations With Michelle .
If you get lost along the way, you can head to Michelle S Blog, as she has the complete blog list.
Thanks for hopping along with us - we hope we were able to inspire you to create your own Christmas cards using some of the designs and paper seen along the way. Join us again in the New Year, our first Hop is scheduled on January 15 and it is consultants choice.
Don't forget to leave a comment, as we enjoy receiving comments to let us know how much you enjoy out projects.
