Good Morning Everyone! Jill Cassity here to share a special way to present a gift to that special gal in your life- your Mom! I created this little octagon gift box with one of the neatest new Cricut cartridges: Tags, Bags, Boxes & More 2. Although some of these boxes may seem to be a little intimidating to assemble they are actual pretty easy! The octagon box took just a few minutes to put together. However, I did spent a lot more time creating the giant pink rose with the Giant Flowers cartridge, but I had so much fun putting it together. I simply glued the rose on top of the box, wrapped ribbon around the rose, arranged a few leaves and roses around the base and finished it off with a pretty tag.
Since the base of the box pops open when the lid is removed I thought that it would be fun to fill the box with paper Easter grass. When the lid is removed your Mom will be pleasantly surprised when bright grass pops out! Any sort of fun, small gift can be nestled into the grass within the box, the sky is the limit! I’m thinking that I’m going to buy my mom some pretty beaded bracelets that I have been eyeing at a local boutique for awhile now.
Thank you for letting me share my project with you today and Happy Mother’s Day to all of my favorite ladies out there!
