CHRISTMAS WITH THE CRICUT........CHRISTMAS TAGS AND GIFT WRAPPING IDEAS

Well this project was so much fun. I chose to do the TAGS and my DT sister, Christina made the gift wrapping so it worked out PERFECT!!!!!! Don't forget to check out her super fabulous gift wrapping ideas HERE.

I made 4 different tags using four shapes from the Storybook Cricut Cartridge. I designed it in my Gypsy to cut out the opening in the middle so that I could add the acetate.







Products used:
Cricut Expression
Storeybook Cricut Cartridge
Pattern Paper: K & Co.
Card stock: Papertrey Ink
Twill: Papertrey Ink
Acetate
Prima flowers
Brads
K & Co. Stamp set
Stazon Black Ink

HERE IS a short HOW TO video:



Thank for stopping by my blog!!!

Hugs, T

  3. Your tags are sooo sweet!
    Do you cut the acetate with your Cricut like you cut normal paper?
    Have a great day!

  15. Teri, There are so pretty. As I was watching this I thought if you just added anothe piece of the paper on blackout that it would make a very nice from for your kids pictures.

  25. Teri! You rocked it with these tags! I loved Christina's boxes and agree with you that your tags would be great with them! I have put windows within blackout shapes before, but haven't used the acetate the way you do... loved it! Joy and I bought acetate at Michaels today... you've inspired us! LOL! Take care girl... can't wait to see what you have for us tomorrow!
