My First Imagine Project ; An Easy Gift Idea

I covered a fireplace match Box with paper printed with my Imagine. The striped paper is Imaginesce. The phrase, tag and trees are from Winter Frolic colored with the Imagine cart Frosty. I used a border punch from EK Sucess for the lace look edge. Red stickles for the glitter accents. And a pretty red bow to finish it off. This is my entry for the Cricut Circle Monthly Challenge.

Two Turtle Doves

This is my entry for the Cricut Circle Magazine Challenge. I so hijacked PC with this one. I made my own "snowflake flowers" designing the quilling flowers on my gypsy, cutting them on the Cricut and using the PC Quilling tool to wind them . I used spray adhesive and glittered them. The turtle-doves were fun to make and dress -up!! The challenge was to make a gift box or bag with one of the templates on the cartridges. There must be at least 4 cricut cuts used. My papers are from Wintertime by Echo Park Paper Company.
