After making a few simple cards using my Cricut machine, I decided to try something a little more complicated as "gift boxes" for some gifts for a couple of my besties.



The original idea is to insert a photo where the stripes are, but that is where I wanted to attach the gift. Also, the mountain top selfies we took when we were all together got deleted. And then one was found, but after I made the TVs!



Above are the front and back. Below are all the detail shots. Can you tell I was really tickled with how they came out?

How the 3D works and how it stands up.


The back




It folds flat to go into an envelope, a cut file for which came with the kit. It's all from SVG cuts, one of the Valentine's sets.



And here it is with the gift: a needle minder based on the Big Joke of the Trip.

Cool little TV cards; the things that you could stick in there are virtually limitless, which makes this a super versatile project to make!  The bright, pastel colors/patterns are unusual for a tv set too, which makes them pop all the more.

Thanks, pals!
These are so adorable!

(Also, WHERE did you find the bok choy pin?  Inquiring Craftsters want to know!)

The pins came from this Etsy: https://www.etsy.com/shop/somethingnicesupply. I may have gotten the last three (one for me, too!), but the shop owner has her own website, too, similar name, which seemed to have slightly different inventory. I did find another bok choy enamel pin in my searching, so there are others out there!
