Just Buggin' Challenge #15

Challenge #15 -Happy Holidays
Make a winter or holiday or Christmas themed project.

I went with a winter project, a gift box full of cards.
The cards can be used a winter thank you, or added to a gift or holiday treat.

Happy Holidays Gift Box

I started with Tags Bags Boxes & More cartridge. Pg 115 gift box with window.
I cut two boxes the exact same size 5 1/2" each, using both gold cardstock and a pattern paper. With the pattern paper I cut where the score marks are including the handles. Discard tabs and handles.
Then I eyeballed using my scissors and cut about 1/4" off each side. I keep only the inside, to adhere to the gold box as shown below.
I made 6 cards for the gift. With the extra patterned paper I cut 1" strips to add to the cards. Each gold card measures 2 1/4" x 5" (2 1/4" x 2 1/2" when folded).
I used the Doodlecharms Cricut cartridge for the cute snowmen sized at 1 1/2" and 1" for the smaller snowman pg. 82. Snowflakes are also from Doodlecharms pg. 83, in various sizes.Just Buggin' has weekly challenges to inspire us to use our Cricut machines, come join the fun!

Have a wonderfully creative day!
