I bought a few last minute Christmas gifts for family and needed some wrapping. I did not want to go to the store on Christmas Eve! So I rummaged through my leftover wrapping supplies and found some old Starbucks bags. I covered the bag with printed paper, then I put my Cricut to work! I cut the present from the Seasons of Joy cartridge using more printed paper and some maroon cardstock for the bow. That was pasted on the bag, then I cut a tag with the present cut-out. I added some glitter paper and more printed paper to the back of the tag, so it shows through the cut-out, then backed the entire tag with white card. I added a stamped greeting and a fuschia ribbon and attached the tag to the package with foam tape. I cut the recipient's name from kraft card and added a shadow of maroon with the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge. I made 5 of these in about two hours! Everything was from my stash and it was a great use for all those bags I had been stockpiling. Plus, my family loved the bags! My sister Linda was delighted that I didn't put her name on her bag (made some gluing errors) because she wants to re-gift it! My sister Melanie was delighted because I used some paper she had given me! I wish I had got a picture of all five together with the variety of colors and papers I used. Here's a helpful hint: When you are cutting a number of names or words with your Cricut at one time, cut the longest name or word twice. That way you have a "bone pile" of extra letters in case you might inadvertently make a "glueing error"!
And here's one of my latest deer pictures:
I took this one Christmas Eve. They are hoping you had a Merry Christmas too!
