Have you seen these sweet little fry boxes that McDonald’s puts in their Happy Meals? I don’t have a kid, and rarely eat there so it was a total novelty to me when I saw it. So stinkin’ cute!
And then I got to thinking,……..
Wouldn’t it be cool if I could get my Cricut to cut a bunch of these out for me?? Wouldn’t they make fun party favors? And so it happened!
I added some bubble beads (with Sure Tac Glue) to border the top and bottom and mimic the bubbles in the paper design. Then I cut some hearts in varying sizes with my Cricut and stamped sentiments from an ancient Close To My Heart stamp set that I have.
I found that with a heavier cardstock they really needed to be put together with O’So Sticky Tape – nothing else held them together for longer than a minute.
I have a little craft party coming up in a few days, I think it’s time to go into production! Ü
Oh, and if you would like to have the svg file I’m happy to share it! (You would need to have one of the compatible computer programs to use it). It will cut 3 boxes from a sheet of 12 by 12 paper. Just “contact me”!
Здравствуйте! Я много раз держала в руках коробочки от картошки фри, но мне и в голову не приходило, что ее можно сделать такой веселой и праздничной! Отличная идея!!! Good wishes from Russia!ReplyDelete
What a sweet comment, and how wonderful to think that my blog is followed in Russia! Wow! Thank you so much Anna!!ReplyDelete
I used Babelfish translator which quite literally said: "How do you do! I many times held in the hands of box from the potato of [fri], but to me and into the head it did not come, that it is possible to make such merry and holiday! Outstanding idea"
I hope you will be inspired to see things in a new way!
