Christmas is love...

Hi Everyone!

Every year our church holds a women's dinner. It's so much fun, we get all dressed up and the men of our church cook, serve and (the best part) clean up. We also do a gift exchange of an ornament.  I created a pillow box for my ornament.  I created the box using the Cricut Cartridge Wrap it up and just hid the image on the box.  I really had to stretch the box so it would fit the very large ornament. Sometimes when creating boxes and bags it gets a little tricky re-sizing, but I'm happy to say that when re-sizing pillow boxes they come out perfect! I cut a cute label from the Cricut Cartridge Storybook and Stamped the sentiments from Stampin Up which I purchased from Nikki
