Christmas Gifties!

Today's project doesn't have any stamping on it - a real rarity for me! I needed some fast and fun little gifties so I created a tiny square box using Make the Cut (love this program!). I started out making the boxes 2" square, but then shrunk them down just a little so I could actually cut 2 boxes out of a sheet of 8.5x11 cardstock. I ended up using patterned paper though so they fit easily, but I still kept them the smaller size. Here they are:

I cut them out using my Cricut, glued them together and added lots of yummy Timeless Twine and these tags I created in Photoshop (you can enlarge to see the tags better).

You can see that I used all 3 new colors of twine: Holly Berry Red, Olive Green, and the Holly Berry and Olive combo (or you can find a pack of all three HERE). I was really happy when I saw that the twine matches these Basic Grey Christmas papers so well!

I am loving playing with this fabu twine that Stacy sent me (these rolls are HUGE - I think they may just last me forever!), so keep watching this space for more twine creations!

And in case you're wondering, for my tags I used the LD Woodland font for the words, DB Holidays for the gingerbread man, and DB Charlie Calendar for the candy cane and snowman (I also did a couple other designs that aren't shown here - these DoodleBat fonts are loaded with great little designs!).

I'm entering these in the following challenges: I hope you like them and TFL!
