Fantabulous Cricut #11

This week's challenge at Fantabulous Cricut is to use at least three flowers on a project. I picked up these little paper mache flip flop boxes @ Michael's last week, and knew they'd work perfectly for this project. Here's what the boxes looked like originally.



I traced the box lids onto pp for the tops, and cut a 5/8" wide strip of pp for the sides. I painted the box bottoms, and coated everything with a layer of sparkle Mod Podge. The flowers for the flip flops were cut from George, at 1.5", 1.25", and 1", then layered with a gem brad center.










Next time you're in your local Hobby Lobby, Michael's, AC Moore, Walmart or Target, try looking for unfinished wood or paper mache pieces that you can use your Cricut to alter. It's an inexpensive way to make some cool home decor or seasonal decoration items. Looking forward to seeing all your floral creations this week!
