Exploring Cricut ~ It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

Welcome to another fun bi-weekly challenge at Exploring Cricut.  This time we are rejoicing that

"It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year"

We want to see your card, layout or paper craft incorporating your favorite Christmas idea!

For me that has to be treat boxes!  I love filling them with little treats and hanging them on our tree!  It is so fun to create cute packaging for simple gifts.  My "Santa" box came from Tags, Bags, Boxes & More and Accent Essentials. 

Cricut Cuts
Buckle - Accent Essentials - 1.25 inches - pg. 78 (gold card stock)
Box - Tags, Bags, Boxes and More - 5.75 inches - pg. 115 (red card stock)
I scored all lines and put the box together with ScorTape.  I then cut a 1 inch strip of black card stock and adhered it to the box.  I placed the gold buckle on top and for added interest shredded some cotton balls.  I then glued them around the edges!  Super easy!  Now I just have to stuff if with some Hershey kisses!  Yum!
Thanks for stopping by!   Don't forget to visit Exploring Cricut for all the challenge details and to see what the other designers have created! 
Until next time...  Blessings!
