Holidays From The Heart - Santa Gift Box

Welcome to the Holidays From The Heart blog hop!  I'm so excited to see what everyone made with the new products in the 2013 Close To My Heart Gift Guide! These items go on sale today! 

This mini-catalog comes with a great new deal: When you spend $100 you get one of the starred items from the Gift Guide FREE!

Ever since the Artiste Cricut cartridge was released, I have been wanting to make this box found on page 55 of the handbook. 

I'm not sure if there is a name for this type of box, but I'm calling it the "All-in-one" box because the lid is connected to the box.

Fortunately, the cartridge comes with an assembly instruction book. After a few trials and errors, I got it figured out.

Once assembled, lifting the lid opens the box so it can be filled with Christmas goodies. Isn't that the coolest thing ever?

  12. Thanks ladies for all the kind comments. If you have not made one you really should. The folding at the top is a little tricky but the instruction booklet that comes with Artiste really helps. If you make one, post a link to yours --- I'd love to see it!
