Welcome to My Cricut Craft Room's Recipe Blog Hop

You should have come from Erica's Craft Room, if not please start at the beginning so you won't miss any of the great projects.

Today I made a project for Erica's Recipe Blog Hop.  I'm not a great baker so I'm always looking for easy and delicious!  I found this recipe by Paula Dean, I love her!  It's all about the butter!

Apple Fried Pies

I used Sweet Tooth Boxes and Ribbon and Rosettes to make a cute little box to hold the recipe.
I thought it would be a great gift to include this in a basket with the indgredients, who wouldn't love that?

It's actually a cake box from Sweet Tooth Boxes cartridge.
# 1 pg 10 <cake>  cut~ 11.48-11.00

For the topper I used the newly released cartridge Ribbon and Rosettes
I've been waiting on this one!

Bottom layer are leaves.  #46 pg 66 cut ~ 2.50
I cut eight leaves , scored in the center , shaped and inked. I then punched a hole in one end a connected them with a brad and fanned them out forming a base for my rosette.
The bottom rosette is # 41 pg 61 <Scallop8> cut ~ 1.5 times 6  Score and fold and adhere together to form rosette.
The middle rosette is # 11 pg 31 <petal>  cut 1'' x 6
The top rosette I made from the strip that you tear off of 12x12 patterned paper by American Crafts 'Autumn Harvest'  On one side it had a row of apples. I just scored and folded to make rosette for the top. I then added the orange glitter brad from We R Memory Keepers

 I hand cut the recipe tag to fit inside the box after printing it out on my computer. I inked, layered and attached them together in one corner with a brad .

I cut out the cute little harvest, apples, fall fun tags from the 12x12 patterned paper 'NightFall' (fall fun) from American Crafts and pop dotted them to the box and recipe card.

Hope you got some ideas for a great gift and yummy treat!
