Ho Ho Ho Close to My Heart Artiste Cricut Gift Bag

Here's a project I made last Christmas for my other blog, Everyday Cricut.  

I really think you can't have too many gift bags during the holiday season!  And it's so easy to make a really cute, personalized one using the Cricut and kraft bags you can buy at Michaels or Joanns. 

When you use a coupon, it gets really economical to do this.  And they can even be personalized that way! 

I used a 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" mini kraft bag as a basis to today's "Ho Ho Ho" Christmas gift bag.
 I cut the "Ho Ho Ho" from the Close to My Heart Cricut Artiste cartridge at 5" and adhered it to a layered set of patterned papers.  

Then, again using the Close to My Heart Cricut Artiste cartridge and the matching Close to My Heart Merry Christmas stamp set, I cut out the ornament and stamped it.  Quick and easy!

Here is a view of the Close to My Heart Artiste Cricut cartridge (click HERE to order):


I've had relatives visiting this week and my husband has been away in Singapore and Malaysia and the Phillipines (before the typhoon...thank God!).  So, it's been very busy at the homestead! Today he comes home and I can't wait!

Look for new projects coming soon!

  3. Wonderful Christmas bag for kids of all ages. I usually don't have time for much of a breakfast, but I guess my favorite winter breakfast would be something hot like an omelet (not sure on the spelling on that - LOL).

  6. Beautiful gift bag! I really look forward to making sausage balls to eat on Christmas morning while we unwrap gifts. It's the only day of the year I allow myself this indulgence. Glad your husband is safe!

  8. Great gift bag. I don't have a favorite breakfast. I just have what I normally have. Cold cereal.

  9. My son's favorite is breakfast casserole. I make it up Christmas Eve and place in the refrigerator. We get up Christmas morning and pop it in the oven. Then we open presents and when we are done it is done and we all eat breakfast together.

  11. Very cute bag. I always love your perfect bows! My favorite winter breakfast is baked oatmeal (with raisins in it). It is so yummy and I love it hot from the oven with a little cinnamon, sugar and milk.

  12. I"ve been making myself a bowl of oatmeal lately - but on the weekends my family expects me to bake something - pancakes, scones, quick breads...

  17. First, I'm so glad your husband was not present during the typhoon and that you had company to distract you!

    Another wonderful gift bag! I adore the mixed fonts. Where did the patterned background paper come from?

    I am not a big fan of breakfast, however, I love French toast and oatmeal. Thanks for the chance to win!

  18. What a cute bag! Well my fav winter breakfast is a french toast casserole with pralin topping. I think it's a recipe I got from Paula Dean, I love it!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I have come to love your emails with your tutorials. I've learned a lot. The only thing I would like to see is you actually cutting with the Cricut. I know you like to keep your videos short, but that would be a cool thing! My favorite breakfast to have in the Winter is pancakes. I hardly ever eat pancakes. Nothing like a good comfort winter breakfast.

  20. Joy, I've recently found your blog (website), I have watched the etching glass blog many, many times because firstly, it's beautiful, secondly, it's economical...Thank you for being so precise on your directions. I will try this bag as well. Great Ideas!!!! You must be a very kind person. My favorite morning breakfast is CoCoWheats!! Never had them until I married my husband 31 years ago.

  26. Our traditional Christmas meal is Christmas morning breakfast--my great grandmother's muffin recipe! They aren't flavored muffins, but they are delicious. And the toppings are half the fun anyway! My favorite is peanut butter with a couple banana slices, but we also splurge on fancy jams, and I love the apricot too. I look forward to Grammy's muffins all year long!

    ReplyDelete
