Cricut Cardz Challenge #53!

Hello and Happy Wednesday everyone!
Is it me or is this week just going by quickly?
I have been sooo busy that I haven't even had
time to check out my favorite blogs.... Oh My...
I'm hoping I'll be caught up this weekend.... I think it's
all this Christmas shopping that I'm doing and certain crafting
and then trying to keep up... I hope my head is screwed on right....
Anyway.... Today is our Cricut Cardz Challenge!
This week we are to Make a set (2 or more) of 3x3 Christmas
gift cards, OR a set (2 or more) of Christmas Gift Tags using ANY
Cartridges or colors... Well I chose to make the Gift Tags.... But I took
it just a step further.... Soooo take a look! :o)

I Made everything... All the Card stock, Ribbon, Silver Cord is Stampin' Up

Designer Paper is Echo Park.... I LOVE this paper! :o)
The Acetate Lid is stuff I bought
at So not sure who it's by...

Cricut Cartridges - Ginger Bread all cuts were at 1 3/4"
TBBM using my Design Studio I sized my tags at 2 3/4" x 5"
then folded it..

I also used the Paper Dolls Cartridge...
              I wanted the tags to tuck in after folding them.... 
    So I used the mouth from the Paper Dolls 
 face and had it cut out with the tag....

Here.... I wanted to show you how I placed them
on the card stock... I used this punch from
Stampin' Up and made marks every 3/4" so it would
be even... this took me a couple of tries of course... but
I did get it done... :o)

Then I wrapped this Card stock around my box and
used adhesive to keep it in place... I did the same thing
with the ribbon... I used an eyelet with some cord to make
a gift tag for the person I'm planning on giving this set too...
I really like how it turned out... so I cut out more tags to make
a few more sets to give to my boys teachers... :o)
I am going to redo the lid because I don't like how the
adhesive is showing... sooo that may change... but all in all...
A very cute gift set for someone! Well I hope you got
inspired by this set and join us over at
I would LOVE to see what you come up with...
and I'll try and stop by to say Hi!
