Like the title nothing needs to be plain,just cut some shape and stick it on,lol..i used the Hello Kitty cart and a piece of pink vinyl, cut one butterfly using the silhouette feature and the other using the blackout feature..put them on this bottle i got for about $5.99 at Kohl's..

This is my take on the candy flowers i saw earlier today on the Cricut community board..she used different flowers..but i thought hmm let me try something a bit different, same idea tho. She used lifesavers, which i have plenty of but wanted some color and these were all of the candies that i had..when i do this again i will buy some flavored lifesavers, or some hard candies like i did on these to fill the cup. I used the Walk in my Garden cart to cut the flowers and the shadow..and for the flower cut from vinyl on the cup. See the bread tag again.
Was looking for a flower that someone mentioned the used from the Wild card cart...i knew had another cart with flowers so in checking out what was on this cart i found a gift box..wheels got to turning in my head and i thought hmm I wonder if i can make it the size of a Peppermint patty first one i cut was to small, this one is a little box but not to much i cut it at 5 Real Dial size..i could have cut it a bit smaller maybe 4 3/4. The bread tag is from the cart i think its Walk in my Garden..i like that tag will be using it on other projects. So anyway here's some pictures of the box.

You probably have a lot of cartridges that you have no idea what is on them,lol.. I know I do so I thought id cut a few things from some cart's and post them on here to get you motivated to look in your cart stash and see what you can come up with. Really when i got this cart I didn't think id use it much, got it at one of Michael's sales last yr was $9.99 and only because it was the only cartridge left so why pass up a deal. So anyway here are several items that you can cut with this cartridge. It does dog tags with any shape that is on the cartridge cut out, or you can do a blackout. Yes that ribbon is even on it, I didnt even realize that was on the cart will come in handy when i need ribbons for all the causes. The card i did, i used what is on the cart is called Rank...well it looks like a pocket so i cut that and applied to a card, the gift i cut with the Joy of the Season cart. And a suitcase as well.. one of the pictures im showing how when the inside is cut with the dog tag feature you can use that as well. Same for the suit case, the piece on top you can use the center of that for a tag.
Like no other because its something i put together..using the Quarter Note Cricut cartridge i cut the shapes and added to this once plain bag.

Did this floral arrangement a few weeks ago with the flower pens..but now im personalizing it to give to a young lady, so i added a couple of heart shaped lollipops, a label explaining they are ink pens..and then using the Wrap it Up Cricut cartridge i cut this flower and added to the bag along with cutting a tag using the same cartridge, when i cut the tag the middle is cut out so i went back to the computer typed her name, printed it out, then used the George cartridge to cut a perfect circle and glued it to the middle of the tag..took me a few tries to get it lined up correctly but it worked in the end.

Target had these picture frames on sale for $1.98, a bit scratched but thought hmm i can still do something with it..so cut some vinyl flowers and sun's using the Doodle Charm Cricut cartridge..gave it some color don't cha think.
Yup just a plain brown paper bag added a few sticker butterflies and its a designer bag. Got these bags from the Dollar Tree 2 for $1..so many other things that can be added to make it something special when you give a gift in it.

Altered a couple more boxes..oh so many idea and lots more boxes to try them on,lol. I did a prayer box with some cards, write a prayer and put in the box and leave it right there for God to take care of. Then i did one for one of my daughters, will do another for my other daughter this weekend. Just think you can personalize and do this with the WrapCandy program.
