Artiste in August: Day 2 Gable Box

Welcome to the Artiste in August Blog hop!  This is a daily blog hop that is going to go all month long! There’s a few of ladies who have taken up the challenge to post something from the Artiste Cricut cartridge every day this month. Today’s challenge is the Magazine File. This was one of the first things I created with my cartridge as I had just finished making several of these from instructions I had found on a blog. I must say, this one was MUCH easier and MUCH faster. I love the elegant curves!
If you’re on this hop, you probably came from Gloria's Blog.  
If you didn’t, don’t worry, just keep hopping! I have a full list at the bottom of this post.
I made some gable boxes. Two things I love about the gable boxes because they have a solid bottom (the contents will never fall through) and it takes no adhesive!

You may recognize this one:  I made it for the Stamp of the Month blog hop and posted it yesterday:

And here’s a couple mini ones.  Even at this little height, they cut and fold really well with our CTMH paper! 

This color is Ocean, which was discontinued several years ago!  I still love it!
That’s all for today.  See you tomorrow!  Now on to the next stop on this hop! Becca's blog.
