NOT cricut but none the less.. just as cute as ever...

I used the round cardboard "thingy"  that you can put cakes on inside of boxes..  This was for a baby shower that I was going to.  I just used my patterned paper that I had that coordinated with the baby shower theme.  I used bling on the baby toes and on/around the letters and board.  Stickers were used for the ribbon in middle and the feet.  Chipboard white letters (can't remember who made them.. had 'em a while).  I topped these off with the Matte Modge podge.  After we were done with the cupcakes and the cake, we just wiped them off and mama to be took them home.  NOW.. you could hang these up (cuter in person) or use them on a dresser.

wedding favor boxes made for wedding with picture of bride and groom

Card stock here is Amethyst from Close to my Heart. I used Key Lime as well & Silver.  These were the colors of the wedding.  it was very pretty.

On page 121 of the TAGS BAGS BOXES & MORE I made the box with the heart at 6in. (created on the Design Studio 2 to a 12x12 mat)  I then used the cuttlebug (can't remember 5x7 embossing folder name) I believe it was from a love set.  I sanded the embossed area and slightly inked with another color in wedding party.  I inked the heart area silver.

I was able to print out on my computer 2x2 pictures and then a slight trim around edges to fit.

In my print shop I was able to print out a thank you from the bride and groom.  Torn around edges and inked slightly with the silver.  It went on the opposite side of the Bride and Groom picture.
