The Artiste in 3D blog hop

Welcome to our The Artiste in 3D Blog Hop!  There are so many fun features  in our Artiste Cricut cartridge that we decided to showcase many of the 3D Objects

In this hop, you will see a variety of projects featuring the 3D Object key of the Artiste but don’t worry, you won’t need special glasses to see them!  (But we do hope our projects will “stand out” to you.)

If you have just hopped onto my blog, please start at the beginning at Lucy's blog – Love 2 Create If you came from Kindred Hearts of It Makes Total Cents then you are in the right place!

My project is this cute little 3D box, that is found on page 78 in the Artiste cutting guide, and the assembly instructions can be found in the assembly instructions guide on page 60. (The assembly instructions guide comes with the cartridge!) (3D object <thnkgvng>)
to cut the flower: shift 3D object <thnkgvng>

I used a piece of Flirty paper for both the box and the flower. In fact, I used one sheet of paper to cut both pieces. This is actually the second box I cut. On the first box, my cricut did not cut the little dashes at the bottom to allow the center bottom to fold in. (pic 2)

Next I folded in the petals, and secured them with glue dots to hold them in place. I used the handle side of my paper piercing tool to go through the hole in the bottom to help push the dots together.

I decided that my box could use a little bling, so I used Sparkle Flourishes to decorate the sides, and a little bling in the center of the leaf on the top.

Thank you for stopping by!
