Box It Up Cricut Cartridge Ideasby Richelle Naegle

I finally got the chance to use the new Box it up Cricut cartridge. It's easy to see why I really do love this cartridge and I will for sure be using this cartridge a lot.

The best part may be the tall box designs. And even though this one was cut out at the 7.5” inches I think putting it on a 12” x 24” and then cutting it out will give you a nice size box.

For this box (which on my cartridge review I said was my favorite) so of course I had to make it. I cut the box out at 7.5” for this box it allowed me to use one sheet of paper for the box, of course, I had to use another for the lid.

Next, I used the acetate sheets so that you can see inside the box, without your treats falling out. Cricut makes wonderful material, in terms of quality. We have tons of options when it comes to Cricut material.

I wanted to add a little dimension to this box so using the Cricut metal embossable tags, I adding a little embossing to the tag and then simply tied it around the box. This box was super easy and quick!

Sizing Tip:

To find out the largest cardstock size you can get out of your sheet for any of the boxes just use your fit to page button on your expression just remember that once you find out the size and before you cut out the inside sheet make sure to take that off and just set your dial size to match the size of your first cut.

Box It Up Features

To the left is one of my favorite boxes on this cartridge. Of course, I wouldn't do it in these colors, but I absolutely love the idea of the long or tall boxes. They are perfect for all those odd shaped gifts like scarves, ties, jewelry, or even great for loose candy. This box also reminds me of paper lanterns. I will definitely have to try to make cardstock lanterns with this cartridge. I think some of these boxes will be perfect for that!
