More Gift Packaging

I made these little gift boxes and matching cards for my friends.  I will probably add ribon to the sides of the cards before I call them done, but I am still debating,.

I used Santa's Village for the patterns, Sweater Weather for the embellies and their mats, Art Philosophy for the card base and the Cricut Craft Room Exclusives 3D Bows.  (Loving the bows) .  The box was made using the bonus design on Christmas Wish in white, and then I wrapped the box in patterned strips from paper printed from Santa's Village.  The tops were cut to cover the top panel.

Christmas Things

Here are a few Christmas Cards and Packaging items I have creaeted using various christmas carts by Cricut.. Ho ho ho!

I actually made 8 of these for the gifts I am to give at work.  I made home made jams and bought little serving spoons to go with the jars.  Now how was I going to wrap that without  buying 8 bags  or jars moving around in box?  I opted for the Sweet Treats Boxes using the insert and then glue dotting the spoon upside down on top of  the jar to keep the top even.  I tied a ribbon around the spoon so it looked like a packaged set.  The background tags on the rosettes were cut from the Cricut Craftroom. As you can see the scale was WAY off. but I liked the color block look and decided to use them.  I used Christmas Wish for the boxes and inserts. The decor on the boxes were cut from Sweater Weather.    I just love how all of this year's cart  go together and a few designs even go with last year's carts..

A good basic idea for Gift Card holders using Wild Card. i decorated them using Santa's Village and Snow Angel.    I will cut the ribbons once the cards are securely in so I won't have tie them with minimal ribbon.

Again the scaling was way off in the Craft room, but I decided to use it anyway,  In hidsight, I should have done it over. I used Art Philospophy and Santa's Village Carts here.

Art Philospophy and Holly this little guy!

I went outside of the box and pulled out my Wild Card Cartridge. This is what I came up with for a Christmas Design.  The Nutcracker is from Christmas Solutions.

These look much better in person.  Among my favorites for this year. I used the Martha Stewart punch to make the greenery. It just added something.  The ornament was from Scandanavian Christmas and the border was using the Fiskars Snowflake punch. The ribbon, good old American Crafts.

More Cricut and Cuttlebug action going on here.  i used Snow Angel for the cottage and Art Philosophy for the backgrounds for the house. I also made the ribbon by taking blank twill seam binding and spraing it with Glimmer mist...Oh the sheer joy!

All created with the Cricut Imagine and Cricut Craft Room. You can see that some days are better in the craft room than others.
