Holiday Holly: A Take Out Box

I just love this little stamp set "A Holiday" A1115 from Close to My Heart.  It's Cricut Compatible with the Art Philosophy cartridge from Close to My Heart and it's so versatile!

I made this takeout box a while back using the Art Philosophy Cartridge.  I used my Gypsy to weld the holly leaves that coordinate from “A Holiday” stamp set.  You could also cut the leaves separately and adhere them to the round closure on the box with a very strong adhesive like CTMH’s Liquid Glass.  Cricut Craft Room is also available to all users now and that allows you to weld as well. 
I stamped everything and then assembled the box.  It’s so simple to put together because it interlocks and doesn’t require much adhesive.  The holly berries are just round circles of Cranberry Cardstock.  They are about a half inch, and aren’t to scale of the holly stamp berries.  I love them big.  It adds more red!

I have entered this page in  the Art Philosophy Linky Party, to show how you can use this cartridge to spice up your cards.  Since I have gotten this cartridge it has not been removed from my Cricut.  It is my go to cartridge for everything, and I totally love everything about it.  Please feel free to explore the rest of my blog as just about every Crafty post on has something that was created using the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge.

Feel free to explore the rest of the blogs in this linky blog hop.
