Our youngest received this cute first aid box from a local children's hospital and it was pretty boring with a sticker on the front. I promised I would make his own special kit. I found a cute Baymax image and imported it into Cricut Design Space, using contour to fill in the image. I also made the title, cutting it all in vinyl. I found the pain scale and used the print and cut feature after adding Baymax's quote. I laminated the pain scale before gluing it inside the lid. Thanks for looking! April

These were based on a paper pattern I found and imported into Cricut Design Space. I have several different papers but only took a picture of two as a sample. I plan to play with the design to see of I can revise these but they won't go to waste for now. Thanks for looking! April

I fell in love with My Favorite Things lip balm set. They are very reasonable in price. The stamps are $9, lip balm window die is $10.99, the rip strip die for $9.99, and the pouches are 10 for $3.99. Many people were using the bookmark die to make the pouches, but I wanted something different. I went hunting for a pattern to import into Cricut Design Space and found a pattern for a mitten. I duplicated and flipped the image to make a front and back, then sized to fit four mitts on a page.
Once I had all the pieces cut, I glued the cuffs on, then decided where I wanted the lip balm window. I opted not to use the little border piece this time. Once the window was in place, I used it as a guide to place the rip strip die on the back mitten. Just be sure when you glue the two halves together to avoid putting adhesive where the rip strip is. Now, the recipient doesn't have to tear apart the mitten to get to the lip balm. I found 3-packs of Chap-Stick in holiday flavors on special for $2.
