Christmas with the Cricut Gift Packaging Wednesday

Hi there! I am guest designing for CWTC this week. I will be showcasing the Mini Monograms and Winter Woodlands carts on my Gift Packaging Wednesday project.
Thank you for taking the time to comment on my projects. They are most appreciated!

Materials used:
Mini Monograms Cartridge on the scalloped squares. I just love scallops and I love squares too. The minute I found these boxes, I knew the squares from Mini Monograms would be perfect! I also hit the "stitched" button to cut out the red squares.

Wood boxes from Michael's
All of the following from Stampin' Up and it is all "matchy, matchy!:
Merry Moments Designer Paper~ isn't it pretty!
Real Red and Whisper White Cardstock
Whisper White and Red Polka Dot Ribbons
Real Red Marker
Stampin' Dimensionals, adhesive
Cropodile for the punched holes

Wilton Lollipop stick for my little Snowman tag. Can you tell I LOVE this Snowman! He is made out of Winter Woodland using SU Whisper White Paper.
I am VERY picky about my snowmen but I adore this one because it has a very old fashioned look.

Think of all the great things you can put in here!
I plan on putting my homemade Peppermint Bark in here! Thanks to my sweet friend, Evelyn for taking me to the candy shop in Dallas!
But just think of all the other things you can put in here: Office Supplies, Beauty Supplies, Gift Cards!

Hmmm, I wonder if JOY thinks this present is for her!!

OK, by now you know the drill, Hop on over to Oakie's blog!

Ya'll have done such a great job, as I said on Okie's blog, loving the guest designers, because each day is triple the crafty goodness!
