December monthly Cricut Circle Challenge

Wow more than two months since I posted- had a nice time at the SC Circle meet up in Greenville- I was disappointed in the Provo Craft representation, although nice I had expected more (demonstration or a look at up coming circle cartridges) – but had a great time meeting all the ladies and exchanging tags and cards.

But enough of that- I wanted to get my package entry in for the monthly circle contact.
DECEMBER MONTHLY CHALLENGE: Holiday Gift Wrapping Challenge!
The Challenge: Use your Cricut machines, Cuttlebug, Yudu, etc. to create beautiful gift-wrapping. We want to see the unique and personalized details you add to your gift packaging, wrapping, gift tags, cards and more!
I am giving multiple gift cards to my daughter and her fiancĂ©- nothing extravagant but enough for the two of them to have four different simple meals this winter without spending a lot of money or making a lot of fuss. I wanted to do something along the lines of recipe cards- so broke the cards down to coffee, salad, soup, poultry and fish- to correspond to the gift cards. I used an old jewelry gift box and covered it in BoBunny paper and made the fold out section with kraft paper- I used the From My Kitchen Cartridge and for the top made a medallion with layered snowflakes for the Winter Lace Cartridge. I was pretty happy with it and will be using this idea in the future- probably similar for my son’s high school graduation gift.
