More candy flowers - Storybook cart

I used the Storybook cart to cut these flowers..the cup i made using a template i found on Splitcoaststamps..filled it with some shredded paper and lifesavers..then added my flowers with a lifesaver.

Nothing need be plain if you have a Cricut - Hello Kitty

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..

Walk in my Garden Cricut cart candy flowers

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.

Wild card Cricut cartridge cuts

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.

Back to School pencil boxes

Made up a couple of these pencils boxes..need to get some more pencils, thought these will be cute to give some kids for back to school.  Oh the pattern is here, nice way to use up some scraps of paper.

Life is a Party cart - Treasure chest purse

Cut these tonight with this cart, i added the handles and some embellishments to give them some pizzazz,lol.  The crown is cut on vinyl.

Stand and Salute Cricut Cartridge

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.

Another bag like no other.. Quarter Note Cricut Cartridge

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.

My Community Cricut cartridge

Like i said on the last post been going thru my carts..taking them out of the box and putting them in the pouches that i have...came across this cart..looked like some fun things to cut so i played with this one tonight..ofcourse still more fun stuff to cut and try out..some of the features it has is a notebook page with any shape that you choose cut into it.. i loved this sneaker and it cuts really big.  So check these out. And the shapes cut out of the page you can use that for something as this hand.

Sweet Treat Cricut cartridge..check these out

Been looking thru my carts and saw that this cart cuts cupcake i had to cut a couple.  I figure you can put a cupcake in it, or candy, cookies..whatever.

No more plain bags cuz i have a Cricut

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.

First try with vinyl on the Cricut

Finally got around to cutting vinyl with my Cricut....does add to a plain ole white cup some color. Have to try something else. I cut these birds with the 3 Birds on Parade cart.

More Altered Cricut boxes

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.
