Box Similar to Sizzix #2 box, Made with my Cricut Design Studio

Here it is... the box I've promised all of you.... I got the box from my dear friend, Wini at Easter. I took her box apart, and basically created one of my own using the DS program. The bottom part of the box I created differs from the one that Sizzix sells, but nonetheless, it pretty much looks the same....

I made 2 designs, 1 using George, and the other using Plantin.



This is the 1st project I created using my Cricut cut of this box. I made this for my friend Tiffany, who is getting married next month.... I made them as favors....

Here's another creation using the same cut, and HK cartridge! I have this sample featured at J's Knicknacks.

Love, adore it! I got a Cricut for Christmas and have been so busy that I've only got to play with it for a bit. This, I would love making and doing! Thanks so much for the download. I'm going to have to figure out how to do the download to the cricut, but I'll get it!

Jen said...

@ Risa:

Your Cricut should've came with either one of these cartridges - unless you purchased just the machine itself. George and Plantin cartridges are exclusively sold with the machine only, and can only be purchased via reward redemption. Then again, maybe you could ck eBay? You would also need to have the Design Studio program. This cut will not work without those elements. =0)

Thanks for your sweet comments, dear!!!!

Big Hugs,
Jen
