Merry Christmas + a Christmas Gift!!

Merry Christmas everyone! I wanted to share a project I made for my Niece for Christmas!

First lets start with the present! My Niece always enjoys getting handmade gifts from me so I had to make her something to go along with her other presents! I decided to make her a notepad with index cards in it. The Ice Cream cone is cut from Simply Charmed.

And of course I had to wrap it all cute with a homemade bag! This bag is cut from Wrap it Up. The tag is cut from Winter Frolic. Hello Kitty is from Hello Kitty Greetings, The red background piece is cut from Gypsy Wanderings and the green oval is cut from Storybook. Lots of cartridges used on this project!

Here is a close up of the tag, I used my white pen to add little dots to give the tag alittle something extra.

And a close up of the bag.. I inked the green oval with a silver ink to give it a more Christmasy feel. I also used my I-Rock to add gems to Hello Kitty's outfit. I then used my hot glue gun to add the flowers and leaves.

Thanks for checking it out! I hope my Niece likes it :)

I also made this to correspond with the Cricut Circle challenge. The challenge was to make a Holiday Gift incorporating a tag, a phrase cut from the cricut, the color red, atleast two cricut cuts and some ribbon (I used tulle and ribbon to attach the tag to the bag). Cross your fingers for me! :)

I hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas!!
