Welcome to My Cricut Craft Room's October 100
Cartridge Blog Hop Day 2.


If you are joining me from Lisa's blog at
Then you are in the right place.

If you happened across my blog and would like to 
play along in our fun hop, you can go to
My Cricut Craft Room at
and start at the beginning.
There are many amazing and talented ladies in 
todays hop. The idea of this blog hop is to show 
you how to use 100+ cartridges. 

Today I have a couple of Sweet Treats to share 
with you. I hope you enjoy my projects for 
todays hop.

This is only a partial picture of all 150 treat boxes.
  A coworker of my mom's was getting married in a
 couple of weeks and asked if I would be able to 
make her some treat boxes but, didn't know what
she wanted.  So, out came the Tags, Bags, Boxes
 and More cartridge.  I knew exactly what box I 
wanted to make.


I cut the box on blackout to get rid of the holes 
for the handle. And then set my E on fit to page.
With that setting on a 12 x 12 page the box ends
up being 2 1/2 x 2 1/2.  (Which is the perfect size
to fit 2 cake balls inside.) After I scored folded
and taped all the sides together I added a 1 inch
strip of card stock around the box.  I didn't tape 
the top closed so there was easer access to get at 
the delicious cake balls.  The flowers on top are 
cut from Accent Essentials at 1 1/2 and 1 inch
each.  I curled the petals after they were glued 
together.  And you always need a little BLING
to bring it all together.


Here are the cake pops that my mom and
I made to hand out to the kids.  We figured
that the kids would love these more than
the fancy boxes.  Who would know that
the adults would go crazy over them to.


If you have never heard of Cake pop or 
Cake Balls you can get the recipe by going

I hope you enjoyed my fun Wedding boxes.

For your next stop please visit my DT sister Kat @
She has the most wonderful wedding projects.


Sweet Wishes, Sharon
