Welcome to the homemade Christmas Blog Hop!! Today's Blog hop is all about homemade christmas ideas for gifts, cards, and decor.
Today I will be showing you a little bit of each! It is soo easy to create awesome handmade gifts for christmas using your cricut.
Since I Just got my imagine yesterday, I sat down and easily and quickly whipped up card sets for gift giving. My family and friends love getting homemade cards.
here are the set of 4 that I made
Next I made a really cute ornament
Liz's Paper Loft. I sprayed the inside with Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer mist the photo looks a little foggy but the actual orgnament has a sheen of glitter, its so pretty. Inside is a cut from Winter Frolic of 2 birds in a cage, and that is cut at I believe 2.75 inches. and is mounted on acetate. If you want a full tutorial for this please check out liz's site, she has a great video. I tied a bow with Some stampin up Real Red swiss dot saddle stich ribbon, added a black button and tied some timeless twine. I added the ribbon onto the ornamanet with my hot glue gun
Next I created a snowman candy bar wrapper. This is a free printable design by Laurie Furnell. She has all the instructions for it on her site. It is a very easy sewing machine project. If you know how to make a straight-ish stitch you can make this
Finally to wrap everything up I used a Kraft Gift bag to decorate it. the cut is from Christmas Cartridge cut at 2.5 inches (i think)
I hope you really enjoy this project I created and it gives you some ideas for some homemade gifts for christmas
