Money boxes made with the Sweet tooth boxes cartridge





















Hi everyone! These cute little boxes were made with the Sweet Tooth Boxes Cricut Cartridge.

I love the cartridge but I did have to play with sizing the lid. The cartridge makes the lid to just sit on the box and I wanted it to fit snug. After a few attempts I measured the box opening and sized the lid to my measurements. The cute feather flowers on top are Websters Pages and can be purchased at Paper Patch Crafts and the Gem strips and Trim are also websters and can be purchased in Anne's store. Here is the link to the store http://stores.ebay.com/Paper-Patch-Crafts/Websters-Pages-/_i.html?_fsub=2628076013&_sid=711701473&_trksid=p4634.c0.m322

The twine is from Trendy Twine and I love it! It is not just 1 tone it has a dark then light and white shades in it. It is perfect for pops of color or cute little bows. It is sturdy 4 ply twine. Here is a link to her facebook store. https://www.facebook.com/#!/trendy.twine?sk=app_150178545006427

One other tip that I have is that I used a glue gun to adhere the trims and bows to the boxes because my standard adhesives that I use in my paper Crafts just did not hold them in place. I know the kids will be more excited by the money inside but I loved making these for them!

Have a great crafty day and Happy Holidays!!
