Deck The Halls - Fantabulous Cricut Crawl

Welcome to my blog Paper Crafts by Candace and the third Fantabulous Cricut Crawl...Fantabulous Cricut's version of a blog hop! The theme of this blog hop is "Deck the Halls". Each Design Team member is creating a project to decorate their homes for the holidays.
If you arrived here from Brenda's blog your in the right place! If not and you would like to start at the begining of the crawl click here.

Now for my project! I decided to make a banner to hang on my door. Let me start by first saying I am a huge Disney fan. At Christmas time my house is decorated with Disney. My Christmas Tree Topper and Christmas skirt are both Mickey & Minnie. Minnie is holding missletoe over Mickey. Also my husband and I have matching Mickey & Minnie stockings. And of course tons of Disney ornaments on our tree :) So I thought it was only fitting that I made my banner Disney themed! I used bakers twine to string my banner on and then dressed it up with alittle tulle.


The letters are cut from Cindy Lou. The backgrounds are both cut from Gypsy wanderings.

The Mickey head is cut from Mickey & Friends and the Santa Hats are cut from Winter Woodlands.



Minnie's bow is also cut from Mickey & Friends. On my Gypsy I flipped one of the santa hats. I think it makes the banner flow better. I also used my I-rock and gems to give my banner alittle bling :)

PRIZE!! I am offering a prize! All you have to do is be a follower and leave a comment with your email address! I am offering some handmade goodies! I will not be taking pictures of them, I want the person who wins them to be surprised with what they receive :)
Make sure to check out each DT member's blog for some awesome inspiration! Your next stop is Cathy!
There will be a Grand Prize up for grabs at FCCB for one participant that submits a "Deck The Halls" project at FCCB! Thank you for checking out my project, I hope you enjoy the rest of the crawl!

Love the banner and to find another Disney lover is just right on. I also have a tree that is all Disney and it is a 7 foot tree. I have two cabinets that are filled with my Disney treasure, even my outdoor lights are Disney. When I was in Florida two years ago I even went as far as to get a mickey tatoo and I am 56 yeaars old! Everytime the grandkids come over they want to see my Mickey tatoo. TFS
