Close to My Heart Cricut Art Philosophy Boxes......

Hey hey everyone--I have been busy with orders most of the day--THIS CARTRIDGE IS A HIT!!!! I wanted to show you the boxes that come on this cartridge.

Not only do you get all this great stuff with the cartridge in this bundle--you get 8 very cool boxes
This box is a 4 flap and used the fit to page feature and it cut at the following size 4 3/4" square and about 3/4" think. You can find this box on page 21 of the booklet and all the boxes are on the Shift Font Layer function of the top row on the key pad.
This box is a keeper.  Found on page 22 of the booklet using fit to page the finished size is 4" by 3 1/8" across the base and stands about 4" tall.

This fun little shopper is going to be my go to treat box for the office.  Using the fit to page feature on my expression the finished measurements are 3 1/4" by 2"  standing 3 1/8" to the top of the bag not to the top of the handle--you can put a number of treats in this box that is located on page 23 of the booklet.
There is a great 'take out' box is on page 24 and was super fast to put together.  The pre marked score lines make the folding a breeze.  The base is 2 1/2" by 2" and is 2 3/4" tall.  Fun for a take home treat after a party--think these may just by my take away at the holiday party!
This door hanger could be so fun for teachers to hang the hall passes in, or to do an office give away.  I think I may even use this when I have guests to in the spare room.  How about a holiday treat on your children's door!  Very fun right!  3 1/2" wide and 7 3/4" long and 3/4" deep when using the fit to page.

This heart box would be great in February or at a wedding.  The box is 1 1/2" deep at the deepest point, 6 1/2" at the widest point, and 6" from the center of the heart to the point using the fit to page key.
Would you like fries with that?  No but I will take the box.  I think this one ranks at the top of my list!  on page 27 of the booklet it cut pretty big with the fit to page.  4 1/2" at long at the base, 6 1/2" from the bottom to the top, and 1" wide.  You could almost put a PB&J sandwich in this box. 

A pillow box is always useful.  This one was snap to put together and is pretty big using the fit to page function.  You can find this box on page 28.  8" along the side, 5" wide, and 2" deep!  I can see this one under the tree filled with gift cards and sweet treats!

I will be showing a few of the cards later this week just so you can see the shapes.  Between the stamps that match the cuts, the awesome boxes, and the very cool shaped cards this cartridge is worth every penny.  If you would like to purchase--feel free to click the link on the side and shop away in my on line store.  You can also see the full idea book there.

Thanks for stopping by and remember to leave those comments for some CTMH goodness!  All winners will be posted next Monday  and everyday there will be some candy!
Make it a great one-

  6. I love this cartridge. Thanks for showing us the different boxes. It really helps to see them made up.

  7. Love this cartridge but it's just not in my budget right now. Great boxes but would you make the 3D flowers? They look wonderful.

  8. I sure wish I had an Expression or E2 - the boxes my baby bug will be able to make are tiny in comparison. Looks like I can make the "shopping bag" one, but the rest would be too tiny... Maybe Santa will figure out I need a bigger cricut for Christmas. :-)

  9. What a fun cartridge. I have a new E2, and it would make wonderful boxes!!
