365 Projects in 365 Days

My previous New Year's resolution was to be creative everyday with my Cricut, but since I've started my blog 2 years ago I have come across so many new exciting things like stamps, digi stamps, non-Cricut projects using chipboard, stickers, etc. and now my addition is the Silhouette Cameo. I will be posting many pictures and tutorials of all my projects. I will be making scrapbook layouts, cards, tags, embellishments and altered items. My goal is to create 365 projects in 365 days.

#244 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop Day 6/ Christmas Cookie Box

Hi everyone welcome to the 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop DAY 6 hosted by Sylvia Bella Scrapbook Designs. If you are here from Sylvia's blog then you are in the right spot!  This hop is all about making 12 different Christmas gifts 12 days in a row and the last day we will be posting is on December 6th.

For today's gift, I thought I'd make something to give to the guys in my family it's a Christmas Cookie Box. I got the box from the Life's A Party Cricut cartridge, I cut it the largest size I could to fit on my 12x12 mat. The final size is about 2.5x2.5 inches or so, so that means your cookies or candies need to be 2.5 inches or smaller. I really wanted to make homemade cookies today but I was so busy all day and didn't have a chance. I bought these awesome store bought cookies from a Southern California grocery store called Stater Bros. these cookies are delicious, nice and chewy and only $1 for a package from the bakery yippee!!! Hmmmm maybe I will cheat this year and buy these instead of baking LOL! Ok not really but it's nice to dream! 

*NOTE* This box has 2 extra flaps that I cut off with my scissors because I wanted a see-through box so you can see the cookies inside. I got a piece of transparency paper to cover the inside flap of the box. I bought those at Michael's in the paper stack isle BTW! 

The stamp sentiment is from CRAFTY SPROUTS STAMPS "Have A Cool Yule" right now she is having a sale all week long, all stamp sets including new releases are only $12.50 with FREE shipping!!!! Great deal, be sure to check them all out HERE! I love them they stamp so perfectly and the are the perfect size for all your projects!

Here's what the inside of the box looks like open, it holds up to 3 cookies and I also added green tissue paper to protect the box and cookies! This project only took me 15 minutes from start to finish, pretty awesome huh!

BLOG CANDY!! In honor of me creating 12 projects 12 days in a row, I will be celebrating by giving away ONE $10 gift certificate to one of my favorite online stores......  PEACHY KEEN STAMPS!!! All you have to do is leave me a comment on all 12 of my 12 Days of Christmas post and be a follower. The last day will be on December 6th. I will announce a random winner on Wed. 12/7 good luck!
