I ordered this cartridge a few months ago; but only recently found the time to use it. I love all of the cute little boxes that can be made with this cartridge, however, it was difficult at first to get all of the pieces sized correctly, and I was running out of patience and ruining a lot of paper in the process!
On my second go-round with this cartridge (and it was on a day that I had nothing planned, and it was on my day off from work; which was a plus!), things went much better. I was able to make a couple of the boxes (and ruined only a few sheets of paper), and they actually turned out pretty good. I would like to suggest, however (and this is just my opinion), that if you're going to use the boxes for items that are larger than bite-sized pieces of candy, it would be better if you use the Expression machine to do it; the size of the Personal Cutter and the Create will make the boxes relatively small (I know because I tried to make them on my Personal Cutter, and although they were a cute size, they weren't the size that I needed them to be; hence, my re-doing them on my Expression).
The directions that were provided (I will admit) are confusing; I had to re-read them quite a few time to make sure that I was doing it right, and when I was making the boxes, I still wasn't 100% clear on the directions, so like with almost everything else in life, sometimes you have to improvise; which I did.
