This week on Bitten By The Bug 2 my very talented teammate Jeri picked our cut. She asked us to use one of the boxes on Tags, Bags, Boxes and More to make a 3-D Gift Container. If you don't have Tags, Bags, Boxes and More you can use any 3-D Cricut Box. Even though I have a few new cartridges I am dying to try with 3-D boxes I decided to go "old" school and play along with the exact challenge.
I used the box with the heart closure on the top from TBBM to make my gift container. Instead of using the heart, I decided to cover it up with a spider web more appropriate to the theme of my container. I cut a spider web from the Pumpkin Carvings Cricut Cartridge. To make a background for the web, I hid the contours and just used the circle to match exactly.
Okay....stay with me here....I don't know what came over me (YES, I have been under alot of stress lately) when I put the adhesive on the back of the white part I wanted to make sure there was alot so it didn't come apart as it was the clousure for the box. I started rubbing the excess away and in my stressed out brain it was looking like real "webs" to me. So I left it....okay maybe not the best design choice, but really it does look like webs and once you rug it enough it isn't sticky anymore. Go ahead double click on the picture you will see what I mean, LOL!
After I was happy (yes, I was) with the web I cut it in half to place over the heart to cover it.
I then cut away the excess from the heart.
The tag was also cut from TBBM with the window feature. The stamp is from My Pink Stamper's new Spookalicious Stamp set.
Please make sure you go back to Bitten By The Bug 2 and play along in the challenge with us. You can also get a look at all the other 3-D projects the Design Team made :)
