Cricut DECEMBER MONTHLY CHALLENGE: Holiday Gift Wrapping Challenge

For the Cricut Circle blog the challenge is:  How do you use your Cricut to add details or personalization to your gift-wrapping for those special people in your life? Show us! We can’t wait to see your ideas!  AND include at least 2 Cricut Image Cuts.

I love presents wrapped in boxes with pretty ribbons bows.  I took an old tin and covered it with white paper.  Added some glitter and then cut out Christmas ornament shapes from the "Christmas Cheer" cartridge.  I topped my box off with a bow made with my new Cricut mini and the 2 cuts in two different sizes of the shadow of the round 3D ornament.  Added some roses for a nice detail.  Additionally, I put a pin on the back so the bow can be worn on clothing.  I hope you enjoy my Holiday Gift wrap!  Have a Merry Christmas holiday.

This month for the Cricut magazine challenge, the guidelines are:
Use your Sophie cartridge for at least 3 cuts to create your project.
I love th Sophie cartridge.  Hope you enjoy my creation.

Using the Sophie cartridge, I cut out 3 of the birdcage and made the birdcage 3D. 
Additionally, I cut out the birds in two sizes and a butterfly.

I cut the flower stems hanging down from Accent Essential cartridge and the flowers are from Mother's Day Bouquet (I just LOVE flowers.)

I hope you enjoy.


I love this time of year.  All the beautiful decorations and goodies to eat.
Thankful to the Lord to bless us with the birth of Jesus.
Hope you enjoy my Christmas themed Christmas projects.
