Cricut Art Philosophy French Fry Box Placecards

Monogrammed Placecards Filled with Ghirardelli Chocolates
While working on a different project I came up with this cute placecard/after dinner mint combo.  Each person's Baroque Alphabet monogram was stamped with Versamark on Bamboo cardstock and embossed in gold.

Cricut Art Philosophy French Fry Box Cut at 5 Inches
The box was made using the Shape 6 Font Layer/Shift.  (The label/tag is from the same Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge as the french fry box.)  After cutting the label, I stamped it and embossed it in gold. Then I layered a piece of organdy ribbon on top of it and popped the cut out monogram with foam tape.

The Shape 10 label was cut at 2" and is layered onto the box 

I love that these little boxes stand up by themselves.  Even after they are heavily embellished on the front, they still stand! In addition to, or instead of, filling the box with a piece of candy, each diner could have a conversation starter enclosed.  Or a quote, blessing, joke, etc.
CTMH Sonoma B & T is double sided
Either side of the paper can be used with equally pretty results. This is a very quick and easy project to make, you wouldn't have to wait for a special occasion to whip this together.

Thank you for stopping by today!
