Christmas Gift Tags with Cricut and Stamps

I am finding more and more uses for my Cricut and growing collection of stamps.  I could buy inexpensive gift tags for all of my Christmas presents, but what would be the fun in that for a crafter!?!  These were fun to make and so easy to produce in bulk.  I used one stamp set from MayMayMadeIt's etsy shop and only 3 Cricut images cut in two pieces, so simple.  I cut the base of the tags from red and green card stock and the front of the the tag from Christmas themed patterned paper from Scrapbooking Made Simple. I fit 6 tags per 8 1/2 by 11 piece of paper/card stock.  I then masked the "from" and stamped the snowman image.  I also stamped the sentiment "Snow Peeking" on red and green card stock and cut them down to size and adhered them to the tag with foam mounting tape.  Last finishing touch was coordinating baker's twine to tie them on the package with.  Video Tutorial for this project.

Rustic Chalkboard Style Christmas Ornaments

Hello fellow crafters!  In my last blog post I described the web store and monthly subscription service in detail.  If you'd like to read more on it just click here.  This is the product I purchased in addition to my monthly subscription box as a project for my son and I to complete together.  We had a lot of fun, the project was fairly simple and the end product was super cute.  The kit cost $19 and I feel was well worth it.  You can order the kit here.  I am not being compensated in any way for demonstrating these products or directing you to them. We enjoyed it so much we are trying to get my husband to cut us some more wood slices so we can make more!  There was plenty enough Chalkboard paint left to do it and of course, plenty of inspiration!!  I listed the rating for this box as well as the link to the instructions below the video.  Hope you enjoy and Thanks for crafting with me!

The instructions as per the Darby Smart website can be found here.

Score for this project out of a possible 5 is as follows:
Value - 5
Ease of Use - 3
Instructions - 3
Finished Product - 4
Overall Score - 3.75
