Hi everyone. Carol here again from The Answer Is Chocolate. I hate wasting things which makes it a good thing that I also like to re-purpose things. This project does both by using some of my vinyl scrap stash and an empty cheese box. Yes, an empty cheese box!’
I used my box to trace two circles onto the scrapbook paper you see in the background, cut them out and then applied them to the box using Mod Podge.
While that was drying, I went to work on what would be the focal point of my box. I alternate between my Silhouette Cameo and my Cricut Expression, both of which I love to use to cut vinyl. I used the Cricut for this.
I used the Damask Décor cartridge and a taupe vinyl scrap and cut out my image ( #30).
Here’s the vinyl all cut out and placed on the top of the box. I liked it well enough at that point but never being one to leave anything alone, I went to my embellishment stash and decided on a paper flower and some chocolate colored self adhesive pearls.
The whole thing took maybe an hour and most of that was drying time for the Mod Podge. Simple, inexpensive, uses what you might already have on hand. Now I just have to finish the gift that is going inside the gift box!
