Lego Party Treat Boxes with my Cricut Imagine!


This year, as usual, my boys want a Lego themed party. So, I pulled out my Sweet Treat Boxes cartridge that I got for Christmas and modified a box in the Cricut Craftroom to make Lego Ninjago Cupcake boxes.
You might be asking, why did she use the Imagine, aren't these boxes so simple I can use my Expression? Well you can! I just put yellow colored paper in the Imagine and printed the eyes in black. I did not want to mess with gluing the small black pieces, so I just printed them with my Imagine on the colored card stock. I'm in a hurry as usual and have a lot of boxes to make, so this seemed the smartest way to go to me!
For the box, I added a rounded corner rectangle from the CCR basic shapes that are free. This was used to cut a hole for the face. I had to mess with the size of the top and bottom of the box, as I was unable to get mine the to fit using the dial size. Once the box was cut, I used my paper trimmer to cut the scallops off of the box bottom. If you are working with this box you should note that the top segments must be assembled in a particular order to close. Look for the shortest set and start with that. Then work you way up to the longest segments. I showed my first box to my 8 year old last night and he loves them! Find the files for cutting the boxes and for printing the eyes HERE.
