Gable Box With Heart Cutout

Hi Everyone
Happy Thursday To You

I hope you all are doing well!

Today I am sharing a super fun and easy box made with the Cricut Design Space. The box image is from the Tags Bags Boxes & More 2 cartridge, this is a free cart if you have the monthly subscription.

I made this the Stampin' Up! Kraft Card Stock, you can find that HERE. It is neutral and very durable and great for boxes. I left mine plain, but you can certainly jazz it up by stamping or inking around the edges.

For the heart cutout, I cut up a cello bag to use for the window. I made a tag with the heart that was cut away, tied it into a bow and hung it on the side of the box. Great for a tag!

I wrote the phrase "I love you" using the DonJuan font (another free one), and the had the machine draw it out using the silver marker that came with the Explore. You can add whatever text you would like here, I just thought it went well with the heart. (plus it is for my hubby)

Here is a side view of the box showing the tag all tied up with a pretty bow, using the Stampin' Up! Linen Thread. I inked around the edges, so it would not get lost on the box.
