How to make the Box Card!

How to make a box card!

This was made using Design Studio and George ‘N’ Basic Shape Cartridge.

1. Cut out the file.

2. Crease on the 4 black lines indicated in the screen shot, which when folded make a box. Then turn your card over and crease the length of the box, also as indicated in the screen shot by the solid black line.

3. Glue the tab, and secure on the inside to make the box

4. Crease the small piece of card on the black lines indicated in the screen shot, one on the front and one on the back of the card, this will then collapse/fold with the box when placed into an envelope.

5. Cut out the desired design, I used Pooh Bear and adhere this to the card before, placing glue on the tabs and securing inside the middle of the box.

6. Decorate as desired, and present!

Enjoy the cut file.

Box Card

I bought myself the Pooh Bear 'n' Friends/Font carts, I had a chance to see what they were like as it was my neighbours little girls' 3rd birthday. I made this Box Card. My sister Shell Wood designed it and when I went visiting she shared it with me. The card folds flat to fit into an envelope.

Thankyou card

I made this card for my daughters 'Breakfast Club' host at school, Alyssa adores her and wanted a special card. Therefore, I decided to put the breakfast clubs host name within the flowers, you can't really get any more personal than that! Alyssa gave the present and card to her this morning as it is the last day and the begining of the 6 weeks summer break. On opening the card she said that this card she would treasure, bringing a huge smile to Alyssa's face. I used making the grade; Doodlecharms; Paper Dolls; and Walking in my Garden cartridges.

Alyssa proud to be six!

Alyssa is just relaxing, did her hair herself!

Birthday - not a child or an adult!

Made for the daughter of a friend who is about to turn 11. She doesn't want to be treated as a child yet she is not an adult, so a lot of thought had to go into this card. Made using Basecamp Cartridge. I'm pleased with the out come!

Gracie-4 months

Gracie is now 4 months old, and after a game of fetch she is just contented to sit and play with her toys. Gracie has lost her puppy coat and her new coat is really shiny, she is also lean, therefore the organic dog food is really working for her.

Pinwheel card made on baby bug

I made this on baby bug when someone on the cricut MB requested one after watching a video, her request was promptly replied by 'Jen', whose design was done on a 12x12 mat whereas mine is on a 12x6 mat. Measures 2 2/3" all round when complete. Fold on the the lines!

Here is the link to the video:

Open fire place

Cricut fold-it bows cut file

After viewing a 'Hot of the Press' template 'Fold it bows', being used I thought I would try and see if I could replicate some of the bows to use in my craft work. I have replicated both the Wendy Bow and the Claire bow using DS and the shapes on the GBS Cartridge. I haven't yet cut the file out, but I am confident it will work! The fold-it bows pictured here were made by a cricut board member "Magic Wanda", who had downloaded the cut file.

First Bow:

1. Cut out the bow and make note of where the folds are.
2. Take the right hand fold line and fold it behind, then take the right hand fold and fold it on top.
3. Slip the cut that is on top into the other two cuts.
4. Fold the left hand loop forward to make a 'puffy' bow!
5. Pierce a hole in the centre of the bow through all layers and secure in place with a brad.

Second bow:

1. Cut out the bow and make note of where the folds are.
2. Starting from the left end, fold the circle shape forward on the fine fold line.
3. Now the next fold line fold under.
4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 starting from the right side.
5. Pierce a hole in the centre of the bow through all layers and secure in place with a brad.
