Holiday Gift Bags - Decorated Using Cricut Cartridges

Hi Everyone! For our recent blog hop, the participants had a Secret Santa event where we made something for one of the blog members. I decorated gift bags  using various Cricut Cartridges for my blogging friends Jill and Bobby Hardgrove, the Cricut Couple.
 On this first bag I used Snowman Friends to cut out the snowman and Very Merry Tags for the snowflake and the gift tag. I punched the edges of the mat with the Martha Stewart Snowflake Punch.

The next bag I used the Cuttlebug Snowflake folder and the Very Merry Tags cartridge to cut out the snowflake and the tag. I punched around the paper with the Martha Stewart Snowflake Punches.

The next bag may be my favorite - I used the George cartridge to cut out three different size round squares to form Santa's belt buckle and then I just put a strip of black paper across the bag to make it look like a belt. I cut the Santa tag from Very Merry Tags. I used Stickles on Santa's hat to make it sparkle and chalk on his cheeks to make them rosy!!

Now for the last bag - I simply cut the HOHOHO out using the Very Merry Tags and pop dotted it and used the same cartridge for the tag.
I had so much fun making these bags. I hope the person that received them will love them as much as I did. Thank you for visiting our blog and we hope you found some inspiration today. We hope you'll come back soon and we love to read your comments. Until another day, God Bless You! Donna
