Cricut Circle Monthly Challenge #3 - Holiday Gifts


The theme for this month’s challenge is geared towards helping you cross off one of the names on your holiday gift list! Please create a Holiday Gift Item. Project must be newly created for this challenge and should include the following elements to qualify: use a tag made with a cartridge (there are so many great tags on so many cartridges), use the color red somewhere, use ribbon, and use the Phrase Feature from one of the cartridges

•Use atleast 2 Cricut Cuts
•Use a tag made with a cartridge (there are so many great tags on so many cartridges!)
•Use the color red somewhere.
•Use ribbon.
•Use a phrase from one of the cartridges

I created a Christmas Journal Purse for this challenge. The main body of the purse is a composition book with the edges cut at a local office supply store. I then covered the front and back of each cover with SU designer paper and cardstock. The cuts used were from the carts Christmas Cheer, Blackletter and Winter Woodland. The tag can be pulled out of the pocket and journaled on the back. Embellishments used include SU ribbon, brads, buttons and smooch ink. I also outlined the poinsetta and tree with a gold pen. There are 6 tabs included in the inside of the composition book for entries such as cards received, cards sent, gift ideas, gifts bought, Christmas recipes and misc. I am making these for some of my closer family members to help organize them this next holiday year! Thanks mom for the purse template!
