Dynamic Duos #12


Today, I am featuring one of the many 3-D projects found on the New Cricut Artiste Collection.  I think I am on a mission to cut all the projects...which is going to take quite some time!  I thought this little flower box would be perfect for Dynamic Duos Challenge this week. The challenge this week is to create a project with Poppy Parade and Basic Black.  You can add the dessert option by adding punches to your project.  I made my project with Holiday Red and Black by Close To My Heart.

I am fairly certain this is a hibiscus flower.  At least that is what it reminds me of!  The box is one cut with the Artiste cartridge and the flower is an accent piece on the same button.  I sponged Holiday Red ink on the edges of my flower and rolled the edges to give more dimension to the flower.  The gift tag and layer were also cut with the Artiste cartridge.  The gift possibilities are endless! I think these would be really cute for table decorations as well.


All supplies by Close To My Heart, except where noted:
Z1790 Artiste Collection-Avail 8/1
C1494 Card Word Puzzle
1385 White Daisy Cardstock
1386 Black Cardstock
X5918 Holiday Red Cardstock-retiring 7/31
Z2127 Holiday Red Ink-retiring 7/31
Ribbon-Unknown
