DECEMBER MONTHLY CHALLENGE: Holiday Gift Wrapping Challenge!

The Challenge: Use your Cricut machines, Cuttlebug, Yudu, etc. to create beautiful gift-wrapping. We want to see the unique and personalized details you add to your gift packaging, wrapping, gift tags, cards and more! Include 2 Cricut cuts.

I made a gift box and used the following Cricut cuts to decorate it: snowflake border and snowman from Martha Steward Crafts Seasonal Cake Art, sentiment from Winter Wonderland, and the tag from Wrap It Up. The handle is glittering yarn and also added Snow-Tex and glitter to the border. A snowman stamp was used to decorate the white tissue paper. The box directions: 1-6"x10"card stock scored at 1 1/2" on all sides, then fold and adhere to form the bottom of the box. 2-6"x12" card stock scored at 2" and 5". Wrap around the bottom of the box and adhere.

The Challenge: We all have them in one form or another . . . flowers! Most of the time we buy them in a package, use a few, tuck them away and then forget that we have them. This week’s challenge we want you to shop your stash and incorporate purchased flowers into your project, whether it’s a card, layout, home decor item, etc. Be sure to include atleast 2 Cricut Image Cuts on your project.

I used Elegant Edges p. 51 for the frame, Walk in My Garden for the pot and Cindy Loo flower7 for stems around the Poinsettias. The poinsettias are from my stash.
