Halloween is such a fun time of year for crafting and I have been busy with a number of 3D projects while using my Explore. For these treat boxes, I thought I would take advantage of the print then cut feature on my machine and found my awesome SVG files from, not surprisingly, Aweomse SVGs. I decided to make three, but to date there are over 10 treat boxes on his blog! They are free downloads, which is awesome and I always follow the terms of use of my fellow crafters!

I used my Cricut Explore for all of them, including the new Print Then Cut feature for the Vampire (Honoré Oleander Treat Box).  All of the products I used to make the boxes were out of my stash. I have been trying hard to use what I have!

I love how the Design Studio separates the layers out onto multiple mats- so convenient!

After everything was cut, I was able to embellish and put the project together.

I try to give all of my projects some dimension with pop dots. In addition, I decided to embellish with chalk ink, my white gel pen and stickles. I also glued the bottom shut for some extra sturdiness.

I love that all of these little boxes went together quickly and easily. The score lines were built into the project, which was great. I will definitely be making more before Halloween!
