And now for my project!
I don't know how many of you know the cartoon Wacky Races if not you won't know who my dog is.  I have Muttley, he was Dick Dastardly's side kick.  

The sentiment is from the My Favorite wizard set I just masked off the thanks.  For the inside sentiment I used a  stamp from the Sweet Birthday Wishes set, both of these sets are from Jaded Blossom.

Here is the complete blog line up for you!

Mickey and Minnie Petal Boxes

I'm sure you have seen the little petal boxes all decorated up cute all over Pinterest, so I had to try them.  These fun little Mickey and Minnie's were made with the new Petal Boxes from SVG Cutting Files.  They come in the traditional round and also the square.   I had so much fun making these!

The round box was cut at 9.4" and the ears were punched with a 1.5" round punch.  The bow was a die.  

The square box was cut at 10.5 high and the ears are from a 1.75" round punch.

Photo Display Purse

These photos don't even come close to showing how cool this is and how beautiful the papers are, but it was the best i could get for now.  This was made with CD envelops to make it into a fun and functional gift.   I made this with my friend Sue, she always comes up with the best ideas!

The inside, the sides are open on this so you can slide in sayings and photos.  My one side is blank, I didn't have a photo to put into it yet.

All the sentiments are from my computer.

This is the side for a photo.  You could put photos in both sides if you wanted.

Cupcake Box

I know I have been making a lot of little oven boxes lately, they are just so cute!  This one actually holds a cupcake I didn't have a cupcake so it is empty (again I just would have eaten it so...) but you can see the cupcake holder inside.  What a fun way to give a birthday cupcake to someone or for any occasion really!  The little clock was from my stash and I have no idea where it came from, I wish I had more of them!!

Purse Card

This little purse shaped card was made with some punches and the Cricut Paisley cartridge.   You could put a gift card inside if you want or just a sentiment.  The flap has velcro on it to keep it closed.

Oven Treat Box

I am in love with this little box!!  Makes me want to cook something...okay that is a lie it makes me want to eat something...that's better!!
This fun box is from SVG Cutting Files, you can get it here.  I didn't put any treats in because if I did,  well I would eat them, so sad!

 This fun little gift card holder is new from the SVG Cutting Files store, it is the Library Pocket gift card holder.  There are two of them going in different directions.  I also added the fun apple from the Kawaii Nerdy School cut file.

Gift Bag

I love things that are quick and easy to make and still are beautiful.  This bag is one of those!  It is a little cellophane bag decorated with designer paper.  I made this with my friend Sue, she is so clever with all the details she thinks of.

Oven Treat Box

All of my girls love to cook and are very good at, which is amazing because I hate it!!  I would love to have a personal chef doing all the cooking for me.  Anyway I made this cute little oven from SVG Cutting Files for them.  I put candy in it, but it would hold a couple of cookies perfectly...see no cooking!
You can get it here.

I just love to make little bags and boxes and things like that, so this little purse is right up my alley!  The lock was cut from the Art Philosophy cartridge, the purse was hand cut.

Here is another Mother's day card made from the Cricut Make it Now project center.  This one is part print and cut and then the base has the flower cutouts on the side.  I really love this one.
