Deck The Halls With Boughs Of Holly

Fa la la la! Or you can deck the halls using your Cricut. This week's challenge on Cooking With Cricut is to use your Cricut to make holiday decor.
For me the choice was simple. I wanted to make a framed sentiment that I would be proud to give to a friend or display in my own home.

From time to time, I stop in the local Dollar store to see if they have anything that would look great altered. I picked up these really cool black frames a while back and have had them sitting on my shelf waiting for a project. They're long and have a trio of frame inserts so they were perfect.

For me, the colors of Christmas have always been the traditional colors of red and green so that was my starting point.

I cut the snowflake using my Graphically Speaking cart and the letters using my Storybook cart. I added a green scalloped circle behind the snowflake to make it "pop" and layered them all on a piece of red striped card stock. The letters are popped up with dimentional dots. The buttons were a last minute touch.

That's it! Super simple and inexpensive holiday decor item that's sure to please.

So what are you creating for the Holidays? We would love to see your holiday Cricut projects, so stop on by the Cooking With Cricut blog and show us what you come up with!

Have a fabulously crafty day! TTFN

Hugs, Becky

I absolutely love this! Now to find a frame like that lol. But it does give me loads of ideas. Great work by the way. I bet you could sell these at holiday craft shows and get a lot for them.
