Christmas with the Cricut-Gift Item

I know I've said this already, but this week just flew by.
I want to thank Joy, Melanie and Tammy for inviting me to be a part of Christmas with the Cricut. I had a lot a fun and really enjoyed making these Christmas projects and reading all of your comments. Thanks to all of you for stopping by and following along this week. It's been a joy.

I also want to send big hugs, to my sweet dear friend Teri. I've always admired your work and it was an honor to share the same week of CWTC with you. You are a true friend!
Now for today's final project: Today is Crafty Gift day. If you remember back a few days ago when I posted my gift packaging project, well I made this to go inside my package.


My gift item is a glass ornament that I etched with the Armor etching cream. I cut a snowflake on Cricut vinyl from Winter Woodland, and etched my ornament. I then added a little gem to the center to give it a little something extra. I also cut a tag from Storybook and stamped a little holiday sentiment. The ornament fits nicely into my gift box.

For somemore inspiration on gift items head on over to Teri's blog and check out her project for today. And of course you need to go to CWTC to comment and be entered to win one of the many generous giveaways.

Thanks again and I'm so glad you stopped by.

  10. Very cute. I now have so many ideas for cute Christmas presents I do not know what one to do. I have been down sick all week so you and a lot of other cricut videos and blogs helped keep me sane. I even bought a Gypsy on Ebay the other day after designing on DS. I do not like have to haul my computer down to my craft room. Now I will not have to. YEA! Thanks again.
