THANKS - Artiste Cartridge - LOVE IT!!!

Hi Everyone!

Well, I have to apologize first because my project today is made using the wonderful, outstanding, and incredible Artiste Cartridge again.  Can you tell that I LOVE IT????

I wanted to make a thank you card for someone but then I decided to make a little "thank you gift!"  This box is on the Artiste Cartridge and I wanted to make it 4" big so I cut out four of the sides of the box at 1" each and glued two together - one set of two for the top and one set of for the bottom.  I then cut the bottom and top of the box out at 3". 

I then glued one set of sides on the bottom and the other set of sides on the top.  I cut the blue patterned paper at 3" and covered the top.  The next blue patterned papers were cut at 2 1/2" and 2".  The label and "thanks" were also cut from the Artiste cartridge and popped on the very top. 

I then cut strips of blue patterned paper and black paper in 1" x 3" strips and covered Hershey's nuggets to fill the box. 

Then I placed the lide on top and tied it with a bow.

Jean loved her gift and was even willing to share her candy.  This project was so easy and only took about an hour to make (given the interruptions I had from my son and husband while I was working).  Easy Peazy!!!

Thank you for stopping by today.  We appreciate your visits and your comments.  If you are interested in purchasing the Artiste Cartridge, keep reading for a GREAT deal.

Until another day, God Bless You!!  Donna
