New project



Hello everyone!

I wanted to share a project with you that I recently created. Believe it or not I am already thinking about Christmas...crazy, huh? I love making up hostess gifts to have on hand to take along when I am invited to party. The holidays are surely a good time to have a few things just for this purpose.

As you can see above in the picture I decided to create a cookie jar for the holidays. I used my Cricut Expression to cut the die cut shapes you see on the front and top of the jar. I just love layering things and usually have dimension on all of my projects. For some reason flat just doesn't work for me!

Do you make any handmade gifts for the holidays?  I'd love to hear about what you create and see pictures too!
