Cartridge Toss-Up with Tie the Knot

Happy Tuesday! I am going to try something new. Sometimes it is so hard for me to keep up with all the images on all my cricut cartridges, and I forget what they all have on them. I get into the habit of having a favorite and that seems to be the "go to" cartridge for me. I have also noticed that some of my cartridges haven't even been used. Yikes! So, I decided to explore each one of my cartridges each week. I made this little jar and put the names of each one of my cartridges in it. Each week, I will pick out a new cartridge and make at least 2 projects with it. It will start each Tuesday with the first project and wrap up on Thursday or Friday with the last project.

The first cartridge picked is Tie The Knot. This is one of the cartridges that I have never ever used. This was my first time using it. :) I had so much fun making today's project and I can see this cartridge for many projects, not just wedding themed.

I decided to make the Bride box and the Groom box for my first project.

Aren't these the cutest little boxes ever? Not only would they be perfect for a wedding, but how cute would the bride box be for a sweet sixteen party? Or both of them for a prom party?

I kept them pretty simple and they took minutes to make. They were so easy to do. I added some ribbon on the bride box to hold it closed and added some hot pink rhinestones to the tux for the shirt buttons. The Bride box was cut at 11.5" and the Grrom box was cut at 10.25" Thanks so much for stopping in and taking a look. Have a great crafty day!
