Here is my project for this challenge:

Okay so you may be asking yourself -- is that a pig dressed as a  turkey?  Why yes it is.  We have some friends coming over this Thanksgiving weekend and I wanted to make a cute treat box for their daughters.  One of them loves pigs and so I decided to make her a turkey pig treat boxWe'll fill it with different candies.

To make this cute little box, I used 3 Cricut cartridges:  Artiste, Teddy Bear Parade, and Create-A-Critter.  I used the Artiste to make the treat box.  You can find the image on page 38, A8, 3D Object, < 8 > cut at 5".  I used a piece of Olive cardstock for the box and a retired CTMH paper called Abundance for the next layer.  

The pig was cut using Create-A-Critter which was cut at 2 1/2".  The turkey "costume" came from the Teddy Bear Parade cartridge and was cut at 3".
