Anything Goes with Artiste!

Welcome to our "Anything Goes with the Artiste" Blog Hop where we are showcasing  the exclusive Artiste Cricut cartridge which can be purchased exclusively through a Close to My Heart Independent Consultant. This will be our last Artiste blog hop for 2012.

Our "theme" for this hop was to create anything we wanted with the Artiste Cricut cartridge. And honestly, you can pretty much create anything and everything with the Artiste so this was not a difficult thing to do.

If you just happened to come to this blog, you should start at the beginning at Lucy's blog - Love 2 Create.  If you came here from Darla's blog, Caution: Crafting is Contagious then you're in the right place!

Today I have a project that I have had all made up in my mind since I got the Cricut Artiste Cartridge way back in July! I just never got around to making it. As soon as I saw this cute little box I knew I would use it for Christmas time.  This cut is on Pg 56 in the Artiste Hand book under the 3D object. It is cut at 2.5" and its just one cut, Fold and glue. I left the top unglued so that I can put in an LED candle inside. I almost glued the whole thing shut! I get carried away with the glue sometimes... LOL! but I caught myself just in time!

Ok enough chit chat here it is:

I used the Pear and Partridge Paper pack and I embellished it with some Reg Glitter gems. I wanted to keep it simple since the cuts were so intricate and the paper had enough going on.

Here it is with the LED candle and the lights off:

I wanted to get a QUICK video of it in action... :)
