Jacksonbelle Tuesday: Christmas Wrapping!


Good morning! Phew! This week's Jacksonbelle challenge really got me for some reason! I guess I had an idea in my head and just didn't know how to proceed. Anyway, I am going to try to keep this post fairly short since I am typing it the night before and I need to go to bed. Bear with me! :) This week's challenge was to create some kind of Christmas packaging of sorts whether it be a tag, a bag, a box, etc. I have recently discovered just how amazing my Cricut Expressions is (Did I mention it was a $60 Goodwill Find???) and wanted to try my hand at using the tag creator. What I love about tags is that you can add them to the front of a card, a gift bag, a box, or even just an unwrapped gift! The possibilities are endless! So to create my tag, I took my piece of Real Red card stock cut the big tag. I then layered on a smaller tag that was cut from the Cosmo Cricket Jolly By Golly paper! The next step was to cut out the word "merry" and attached it to another layer of chocolate card stock. I embellished my tag with some fun ribbon, Prima Flowers, and hardware brads!

Well, that's it for today's project! Make sure to check out this week's challenge details on the Jacksonbelle blog as well as the other Jacksonbelle girls!

A Cricut at the Goodwill! Wow! Good for you! And I thought I did well because my husband bought me the original Cricut before Michaels quit letting you use the 50% off coupon on them. I really like this tag. Lovely.
