Gift Boxes-Christmas cuts

This silhouette is backed with several layers to add dimension & I used some "snow" effect on the little hat thingy. I also used my white gelly roll pen on the perimeter. On the opposite side, I placed this ornament die cut with the same "snow" on top, and the holly is accented with stickles. The remaining two sides only have the holly. I finished it with two colors of ribbon. A little bling nevah hurt anything! All the die cuts are also embossed, yay! The snowman is from Gypsy wanderings... Reindeer is also fom Gypsy wanderings. I finished this one off with  three kinds of ribbon.  Well, I guess I've not been posting much due to my lack of picture-taking lately. I have been busy making Christmas goodies however and here are the latest little boxes I've learned to make & YES, another new favorite!!! I got the instructions from Cricut chick's page. Her tutorial is on video for those who really need to see how this is m

Advent Calendar/ Christmas/ Plantin Schoolbook

Well here it is, my first Advent Calendar! I got the directions from Kathy at Paper Phenomenon, and although I couldn't get it to look perfect, my kids were happy with it (free candy every day for 24 days??-they better be happy!). So I did my job! The paper was from DCWV, I picked it because it matched our décor and the Santa and sleigh were from the Christmas cart. The numbers were cut at 1" from the Plantin Schoolbook cart, and I made Santa's gift bag & will be adding it also. Who are these people?!! And where's my reindeer??!! You can't see it, but there's a lil' box behind the sleigh! Totally matches my walls!! A couple of things I learn every time I try one of Kathy's projects are that I am not good at handling a glue gun-no matter what! And, boy can I improvise!! Hey, it's a gift, and I intend to use it. Poor santa looks perplexed, he doesn't know whether to title this list as Nice or Completely Naughty! Enjoy...
