Fall is in the Air - Popcorn Box

Every year Laura from Laura Kelly Designs hosts a great Blog Party where talented bloggers/crafters come together to create something fun from a Popcorn Box!

This is my first year to participate in this fun blog party and because Fall is my favorite season, I decided to decorate my box with that theme in mind.

I love using my Cricut Explore and immediately found some perfect cut-out designs in my library of over 100 cartridges! (Yes...I am obsessed!)

I chose the "Fall is in the Air" sentiment which is from the Autumn Celebrations Cartridge and the leaves were from the Sesame Street Seasons Cartridge.

Of course I didn't have to actually use cartridges as I have Cricut Design Space in addition to the Cricut Explore Machine, so all my cartridges are stored "digitally" in the Design Space Online Application. This is so conveinent and one of the many reasons I LOVE the Explore!

I was also sent a small goodie package for this project from Laura that contained some crafty items from some of the sponsors of this Popcorn Box Blog Party and I used some of the cute patterned scrapbook paper from "Adorn It" for the background on the front of the Popcorn Box.

We were not required to use any of these items in our project they were just complimentary from the various companies.

Here is a collage of all the steps I took to make this project:
