December Magazine Gift Bag/Box Contest!


We had to create a gift bag or box using a base from one of the many Cricut cartridges available. And embellish it to fit our style! We had to use at least 4 Cricut cuts in our design and incorporate something from one of this month’s magazine sponsors.

I choose a gift box from the Tags, Bags, Boxes and More Cartridge. This was the first time I have cut from this cartridge. I used the Gingerbread Seasonal Cartridge for both the Gingerbread house and the stocking, and the Christmas Cheer Cartridge for the Candy Canes and Wreath. I inked most of the edges, used glitter glue where ever I could, and used the iRock to adhere the gems to the Gingerbread house.
I'm very happy with the outcome. Now I understand why everyone loves the TBBM cart. I have to admit it was nice that I could put it on the Gypsy and then deside how big to make the box.
Well, that's 2 more carts used. I'm working on finally using each cart atleast once. Only about 80 carts or so to go. :-)
