Okay actually this weeks challenge isn't actually using the Matchbox the way it is in the Cricut Manual....Awhile back I was playing with the Matchbox cut on the Tags Bags Boxes & More and I discovered that if you use to bottoms, you have an instant Gift Box...All you have to do is cut the top 1 size bigger as in if you cut one cut at 5 inches, then you need to cut another at either 5 1/4 or 4 3/4........depending on if you want the 5 to be the top or the bottom...The top has to be slightly bigger then the bottom.....So I decided to make the challenge this week making Gift boxes out of the cut on page 124 of the manual, which is the bottom portion of the Matchbox (match2.)....This is by far one of the most awesome cuts....rather you have the big bug or the small one, the box is super cute..........Just take a look at all of the designer ideal.......WOW ladies, awesome.....Also one thing to note, if you do have the little bug and you do the top of the box at 5 1/2 inches, you will have to do the bottom at 5 inches because there isn't a 5 1/4 on the little bug; so the top will be a little big on the bottom, but it is equally as cute.....

One more thing before I show you all the designer ideal, please make sure to click CONTEST for the new contest that is starting today.....

These all look so great! I have a Question for any of you that made these, did you make the box out of cardstock, chipboard, or what, and then cover it in paper? I am having a hard time figuring out the best way to do it. thanks so much to anyone who will help me.

Simply phenomenal! Never have I seen so much creativity packed into one site. You women are truly inspirational. Keep it up! Keep motivating others! Keep creating!

Cricut users are what we need in this world of rote memorization and a lack of creative sparks.
