MCT 3-D Wednesday


It's 3-D Wednesday at My Creative Time, and I've got a fun Father's Day gift to share with you today!


I made the fun tie box from the Cricut Tags, Bags, Boxes and More 2 cartridge.  I cut it at 8".  For tips on how to use the score lines that come with this cartridge on your Gypsy, check out this post.


When I was looking through my papers, I came across this one from Fancy Pants, in the Off to School collection.  I couldn't believe my luck!  The perfect plaid for the shirt had glasses on the back side that work perfectly with My Creative Time's Here's Looking at You stamp and die set!  The shirt box cut comes with a tie, but I much prefer the stitched tie from Emma's Here's Lookin' at You, so I used that instead.  When the collar folded down, it showed the glasses side, so I traced it onto the plaid paper and glued that on top.


The box is just the right size to hold some dark chocolates for my dad.  He doesn't like to get big amounts of chocolates, so this is perfect!


I made my coordinating 3" card with some PTI fine linen cardstock.  I added some strips of the Fancy Pants paper (both sides) and a few stamps from Here's Lookin' at You.  Easy!

Here's a look at the entire Here's Lookin' at You set:

Be sure to stop by My Creative Time to see what Emma and the rest of the design team have created for you today!

Hi Katie,
Your creations with this cart. Inspired me to buy it! However, I can't get my score lines to line up correctly and I don't have a gypsy. Do you have any suggestions?
