I was surfing the web last night and came across the site SplitcoastStampers. This site is new to me and I really enjoyed looking through all their projects. One in particular caught my eye~you guess it...the Puffy Box project. The designer (Brandy) on SCS used a CD to make her project. I was looking at it and thought how nice it would be to have the Cricut cut this out for me instead.
So, this project is NOT my original idea~but it will make your life easier if you want to cut quite a few of these out!
Here is the link to the original post on their site where I first saw this: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/puffybox/
This project was designed on a 12x24 mat~but you can always cut it on a 12x12 as long as you move the image onto the left side of the 12x24 mat.
Overall dimensions: 1.5"Hx3.5"Wx3.5"L(approx.). I think you would be able to get one of those Ring boxes inside this pretty box! It's pretty deep :)
I used Accent Essentials-but you could any circle from any cart for this one. I also used Gypsy font in there too :)
To help me score the box I used a CD to keep my lines nice and smooth, there were some I had to free hand but this was definitely not hard :) (and you all know how score mark challenged I am LOL!)
Here is the box all scored and folded.
Now just find a pretty ribbon to tie around and you're done! This box just opens up completely once the ribbon is off~I didn't glue and flaps down (I don't think it's supposed to be glued actually).
