Candy Holder

I found this idea from Lauren over at 40:31 Creations while doing a blog hop. The link to her post is HERE!

I done these kinda last minute, so I kept them pretty basic. (I didn't have any double sided Christmas paper either) Double sided paper would look better.. You could really dress them up a lot more if you wanted and had the time.

Basically you just score at 4 inches on every corner, every side then score once in the corner squares to make triangles. I punched holes in each point with my cropadile, put some ribbon through and tied a bow.

I put cookies and candies that we made inside. Really easy basket, that turns out cute!

Altered Paint Can

This is my first altered Paint Can. I made this one for my cousin Shelby. I put her Christmas gifts inside. I used my expression to cut out the circle for the lid. Added some ribbon to the handle and mod podged the paper on to the can. Really simple and cute :)

Christmas Tree

So most everyone is done posting Christmas things and have moved on but not me, I still have a few more..

I made Christmas trees using the Tags, Bags, Boxes and more cartridge, filled them with M&M's. I used plastic from some packaging for the window.

Dog Bone Ornament

I got this idea while doing a blog hop recently. The Scrapbooking Queen had made some ornaments for her fur babies and I loved the idea. So, I made one too and plan to make more sometime! I ♥ my doggies!! This one is for my cousin Jessie and her dog Gus. She just bought herself a Cricut expression on black Friday and has a new blog  My Crafty Corner if you'd like to check it out :)

For the ornament I used the Paper Pups cartridge! I really love this cart :) When I was all done I mod podged it all.

Winter Wishes Door Hanger

I had a lot of fun with this project. I used the door hanger off of Tags Bags Boxes and more cartridge. (I should have "hid" the little slot, but I forgot.) The snowman and winter wishes are from Jolly Holidays! I glittered the snowmans hat with MS glitter. Used glitter glue/paint for his nose and gift. I colored his eyes in with atyou Spica glitter pens. I used PLAID FolkArt Texture Paint for the falling snow, snow at the bottom and the edges of the snowman! Fun stuff :)

This is for the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blogs "Deck the Halls" Crawl. I am also linking it to the linking party at Passionately Artistic! And entering it in Gaby Abby Challenge

Happy Christmas Cards

A few of you visitng today may have already seen one of these cards {...Wink...}

:) These are my favorite cards I made this year. I used the Holly from Stretch your Imagination cartridge. Some I shadowed, some were outlined or both. I just played around with them. The Happy Holidays and Happy Christmas are stamps. I used some vintage looking lace and inked the edges of the card to give them more of a vintage look.

Thanks for stopping by! Merry Christmas Pin It

The snowman is from the Jolly Holidays cartridge. I ♥ that cart, it is the cutest!! The joy is from a sizzix die, scallop is from a punch. I used Peachy Keen face stamps for the snowmans face and colored him and the embossing on the joy with BIC Mark-Its.
