"Anything But a Card" at Cooking with Cricut

If you'd still like to join in the Cards for Kids Valentine's Day Blog Hop, click HERE.
My blog candy winner will be posted on Friday so you have until 9:00 pm PST on Thursday to add your comment.


It's Wednesday and my design team day at Cooking with Cricut.  This week our designers/ hostesses chose a fun challenge - Anything but a Card and use polka dots and the color yellow.  If you've been in the Valentine mode, this makes you think differently or at least outside the box.  And speaking of box, that's what I chose instead of a card.

 
This is the heart box from Tags, Bags, Boxes, and More.  OK, I am still in the Valentine mode, but I did find yellow and polka dots.  Sometimes it pays to have as much patterned paper as I have LOL!
The tag was punched and I added the sentiment using the monogram feature on A Child's Year (I actually used the inside of the cut).  I added a doily, a bow, and a few Gel Pen dots and that's it.  A quick and easy treat box.

Click HERE to see what the other design team members created for this challenge.
You can play along with us at Cooking with Cricut.  Just link up your project.  Remember, anything but a card, use a Cricut cut somewhere on your design, and incorporate yellow and polka dots. 

And don't forget that you can still leave a comment for the Cards for Kids blog hop and be entered into my blog candy drawing.  You have until 9:00 p m PST on Thursday.  My winner will be announced Friday, January 27th.

Hugs and Happy Crafting,
Larelyn
