Hello Kitty Box

Hello everyone!  Today the fabulous Abby is having a new challenge starting!  She is challenging everyone to make a bag or box using Hello Kitty.  If you don't have any Hello Kitty stuff don't worry - just search online for pictures like I did.

For my project today I searched on Yahoo for some Hello Kitty images.  I just printed one I found and cut it out.

I used the Wrap it Up Cricut Cartridge to cut the box at 8 inches - which is the biggest it would go on an 8 and 1/2 by 11 inch sheet of cardstock.  It is actually very small when put together.  Each side is about 2 and 1/4 inches square.  So, it's super cute and would be nice for some small candies or a piece of jewelry.

For the top of the box I tied a ribbon around the lid, then added my image on pop dots, and finished off with the adorable sentiment "Luv Ya!" from SP & Company's Artsy Heartsy stamp set.  I actually stamped it onto the top of a post it note and then cut it out, so I didn't even have to bother with adhesive.

For the sides of the box there were 2 that cut as plain squares. For those I just added 2 and 1/4 inch square pieces of patterned paper from the Cricut Celebrations stack - all the other papers are from that stack as well.  

The other sides have this fun balloon design on them.  I added a piece of patterned paper behind the balloons - otherwise the box was open and things would fall out.  I had to hand cut the center balloon so its' a little screwy.  *LOL*  The other 2 balloons cut as a layer for the box.  After the balloons were all assembled I added some dashes and dots around the frame and a little bit of green bling in the corners.

Now that you've seen my project be sure and head on over to Scrabookaholic By Abby.  You can see the rest of the Design Team's creations and also enter your project for a chance to win a fabulous Hello Kitty watch.

I just love how bright and cheerful this is! I also love that you pointed out that people do not need to go out and buy something to participate. Sometimes I find with crafting it can get really materialistic and we forgot the basic things.
