Create a Holiday Gift Item. Project must be newly created for this challenge and should include the following elements to qualify: Use at least 2 Cricut Cuts
•Use a tag made with a cartridge (there are so many great tags on so many cartridges!)
•Use the color red somewhere.
•Use ribbon.
•Use a phrase from one of the cartridges.

I used a glitter water globe w/photo frame. Instead of a picture I used two Cricut cuts: Santa from Christmas and a snowman from Gingerbread. The recipient can use the Santa for December and then the Snowman for January. She will also have the option of adding her own pictures. The tag and phrase are from Winter Frolic. I decorated a paint can for the wrapping instead of the original box. Ribbon was used for the base, top of paint can and draped over the globe. I used liquid pearls to give the santa's coat dimension and added stickles to both cuts.
