French Fry Crayon Back 2 School Box

Created this French Fry 3D Box using Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge. Was not sure when I saw the challenge at Bitten By the Bug 2 what to do with the box let alone where on the cartridge was the image cut. I found the image on page 27 as key #7 Font Layer Shift. 

I decided to do a Clean & Simple CAS version red color of the box to hold a box of Crayola crayons and dress it up with a cute tag. Figured if I gifted it to the neighbor girl that the box would just get tossed. Well, you'll never guess what the girl's reaction was. She asked if she got to keep the box. She was so happy with the way the box looked or the way the crayons looked inside the box.

The Tag is made using a Meljen digi, Little Chalk Board Color. Used Spellbinder Rectangle dies for layers. Added Glossy accents to the Apple in the digi. Added stickles to the star in the digi. Added a scrap pieceof ribbon. I'm all out of this ribbon so I need to buy some more from Hobby Lobby.
