K+ J= Love Struck

Hi there friends!
Today I have another project I created with the Love Struck Cricut Cart. I wanted to use the heart box that is one of the 3D projects included. While working on it, I decided that rather than making a box, I should think outside the box & create something completely different. So..., this is what I ended up creating:
It's a tree trunk with branch. Yes, this was originally the box. Can you guess what the "K + J" stands for??? That's the bonus question for today :)

Here are the deets:
I cut the box on 12 x 12 CS on the "Fit to Page" feature. I cut the tabs off both ends then I stamped the remaining piece with a wood-look stamp. (It's hard to tell because the CS was textured.) I ran a scrap piece of cs in my hearts crimper & adhered it with dimensionals behind the heart cut out (so it's recessed). I punched out the grass border to go all the way around & added bitty Primas & heart punches. I didn't have Valentine's Day candy on hand so I just filled it with Raffaellos (which I always have on hand :) I hung the "Love" sign from the branch as the sentiment. At 6" tall, you can fill this trunk of love with all kinds of goodies. Oh, here's a peek of the inside:
ETA:  To create the trunk DO NOT add the score lines to the box. Cut off all tabs to top & bottom. Adhere one end to the other. Then you'll need to make the bottom so your goodies sit inside. To create a bottom, I cut out a 4" circle & made slits all the way around to make little tabs which I adhered to the inside bottom of the trunk. I created the branch by simply rolling a scrap piece of CS & adhered it to the trunk with a glue dot.

Don't forget that Cricut Carts are on sale at YMH until Feb 2nd. You can get all the deets ---> here.

Thanks so much for peeking today! I've created one more project with the Love Struck cart & then I may have to put it away for a while. My other carts are starting to feel jealous ;).
