Cooking With Cricut: Cricut Pens or Sun Die Cut

Welcome To Funky Cards and
Cooking With Cricut-
Sun Die Cut

Thank you for stopping by today to check out this week's challenge.  For this week's challenge, you can either use your Cricut pens or a sun die cut. I chose to use a sun die cut for my project.  

Last week I attended the Ustream broadcast for the latest release of the Pink By Design stamps.  During this broadcast there was a project that we all made.  It was a treat box.  I decided to use this project for this week's challenge.    

You can get the directions on how to make the treat box by clicking HERE. I used the Create a Critter Cricut cartridge to cut out my sun (2.25"). 

The computer generated sentiment says, "You brighten my day." I added gems and googly eyes to make it extra special and a bit more colorful.  I punched holes in the top and thread the ribbon through so that it can open and close.

To make the flowers I first painted the stir sticks green and then attached them, using a small bit of adhesive with my ATG gun, to the actual flower.  I hid wrapped candy in the bottom of the container to hold up the flowers:)

I am going to give this to one of my friends this summer just because:)  I love doing that!
