{Valentine Gift Box} Tutorial using Recycled Cricut Cartridge Box

When I decided to take my Cricut cartridges out of the boxes and store them in a plastic containers {like these}  I kept the boxes for future projects, just like this one.  This project is made with one of the older cartridges boxes which are of heavy cardboard with a magnetic closure.  The newer Cricut cartridge boxes are plastic and snap to close.  

Use what you have. 🙂

Here is what I did….

Supply List

  • Cardstock
    • red, white and valentine design paper
  • EK Success lg. circle border punch
  • washi tape
  • felt rosette flowers (see tutorial here)
  • 4″ tulle circles (found in Wedding section)
  • clear rubber bands (found in hair accessory section)

  11. Great idea, wish I had some extra to do some, might have to give up and take one out to the boxes. I think it would make a great jewelry box to. And it already has the magnetic closure.
