CTMH Cricut Artiste – Supply Holder Box / Decorative Box

I love to create things using my Cricut Imagine not just for cards or scrapbooking, but also that can serve other purposes.  That’s one of the reasons that I absolutely adore the Close to My Heart Cricut Artiste cartridge.  It has so many 3D objects that I can easily cut and assemble that help me either package a present pretty or even store some supplies (See my Notepad Holder w/ Pen).

I saw on the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog that this week’s challenge was to make a project using some type of school supplies. I was also lucky to find that Bitten By the Bug 2‘s challenge was also Back to School! Well – I don’t have children and school supplies for me is my Laptop, Post it Notes, and Index Cards.  I know – I’m strange.  Because of my Fibromyalgia, it’s easier for me to take notes while typing (I type far faster than I can write) and then I use Post It notes as reminders.  Studying ALWAYS consists of the use of Index cards.  This is the way it’s always been for me.  I was always known as the index card girl.  Even at my current job – until recently – I was known for always having index cards and a plethora of Sticky Notes.

CTMH Cricut Artiste Cartridge – Notepad Holder w/ Pen

I cannot say how much I adore this new CTMH Cricut Artiste Cartridge.  It has so many super cool 3D projects on them and they have been pretty easy to put together so far.

Today I made the Notepad holder (Page 66 of the insert #45) – I made it a little too big for my notepad but I thought it was cute enough anyway.  You could put some other little supplies inside the little box – that way you have some paper clips, etc with your notepad.

It made it quite obvious to me, however, that I really need to work on my ribbon and bow work!! 🙂

I used the Gardenia collection from American Crafts Cardstock and the coordinating embellishments.  The materials & tools I used are listed below.  I added a pen with coordinating cardstock in the barrel to match! Super cute! It goes really well with my Decorative Skinny Notepad I created the other day too!
