Wonderful Wednesday at Exploring Cricut & More!

Welcome to Wonderful Wednesday at Exploring Cricut & More! I just got the new Box It Up Cricut cartridge a week ago and got to sit down and play with it! Here's my very first box that will hold a birthday gift (lottery tickets) for a friend of mine-

The box was easy to make-this is box #29, and I cut it at the recommended 4" out of a heavy glitter paper (I always did like to make things hard on myself!). The paper cut beautifully, it is the fold lines you have to be careful of. Light score marks and careful manipulation of the paper didn't leave cracks along the folded edges.

Easy to put together, but trust me when I say that Cricut did not explain certain things! When you see a page like this,

 know that F1, F3 & F5 are score lines! I think you're supposed to score the box first, hit load last, then cut the box part. I just cut all my pieces and scored my lines myself-seemed easier!

There are 50 different boxes you can make with this cartridge, and I can't wait to make more!
