New and fun challenge at Exploring Cricut this week!

We are having a great challenge starting today at Exploring Cricut. The challenge is called "It's a Box" You are to make a box, bag, purse, any shaped container you want from your cricut cartridges. With all the great cartridges we have with the party favors and treat boxes, I am sure you will find something you will want to do! I decided on making the Dog House treat box from the new Tags, Bags, Boxes and More 2 cartridge. The box just took on its own charm once I got started on it. I used Old West for wood planks for the roof to jazz it up, Animal Kingdom for the Dog, Everyday Paper Dolls for the grass, Paper Doll Dress Up for the bone and to decorate around the dog house, tulips from Spring Cottage. Below the picture I will put the measurements for each cut. I can't wait to see your creation!
Dog House cut at 7.5 inches-Tags, Bags, Boxes, and More 2
Wood planks cut at 2 inches and 2 1/4 inches-Old West
Dog cut at 2 inches-Animal Kingdom
