Cooking With Cricut's Cele"bear"ation!






Welcome to Stacey's Creative Corner and Cooking With Cricut’s Cele”bear”ation Blog Hop! We’ve been partying all month long in honor of CWC’s first blog-aversary. If you arrived here from Dalis’s blog at http://www.stampergirl.com/ you’re in the right place! If you’re crashing the party in mid-hop, head on over to Cooking With Cricut — grab some punch and cake and start at the beginning.


Our theme for today’s party is bears and/or celebrations. I decided to celebrate the upcoming arrival of a baby for my project. I decided to make a tissue box cover to go in a little one's nursery. I found the instructions on how to make the box here.

Here is a picture of the front of the box with tissues:



Side 2:



Side 3:



Side 4:



And the top view:





So cute! I cut all my images from the New Arrival cart out at 3" except for the BABY blocks, they were cut out at 2". The bad part is, I have no clue as to who I will give this too. I was just in the mood to make a cute baby item. :) Makes me wish that I paper crafted when I was decorating my children's nurseries. haha!

A blog hop wouldn't be complete without some candy. So....I am offering the following prize to one lucky winner:

1 pack of pre-scored card with envelopes

&



1 D'vine Swirls cuttlebug embossing folder





All you have to do to be eligible for my prize is to post a comment on this post.



You don't have to be a follower, but if you are, leave a second comment to give yourself a second chance at winning.



I will pick the winner Monday morning, 5-23-11 by using Random.org




Now it's your turn! Link up your cele”bear”ation-related project at CookingWithCricut.com.


Here are the guidelines for the challenge:

- Project must include a Cricut cut.
- Project must include a Bear.
- Project must be new for this blog hop challenge.

  2. I have to agree...what a super ideal, but what do you do when the box is empty. It is just to pretty to be tossed. Great colours and all your extra details made for a awesome project. TFS!

  8. Very cute! Is this just paper you stuck onto a tissue box or did you get a true cover for the box from the craft store. Wonder if you bought one of those and then used some mod podge if it would be more durable. I'd love to have something like that for my new baby's room.
