Good morning!  I'm in ANOTHER blog hop (crAzy right ?!?!?).  For this blog hop, we are featuring the Artiste Cricut cartridge, specifically, page 38 of the booklet.  Here's a picture of the page:

If you came her from Bren's blog at Close to My Cricut, then you're in the right place!

I decided to make a New Year's treat box.  I thought it would be fun to make a treat box for a couple of friends and put in some things that would help them begin the New Year with a bang!

Here are some pictures:


The treat box can be found on page 38, A8, 3D Object, < 8 > cut at 5".  The clock and accessories were cut from that same key using the Accent keys at 3".  I used our Dakota paper pack for my treat box.  I then used Crystal Blue ink to edge the Roman numerals and the clock face to give a little dimension.  Finally, I stamped the Roman numerals and clock face with a stamp from the December Stamp of the Month - Year Round Cheer using Crystal Blue ink to give the paper a little bit of a "pop".
