A Jolly Old Elf!
The holiday season is well underway - guess who I saw on Saturday? I had a chance to meet up with my walking friends at a local church fair. I already had wreaths that we bought from our Cub Scout nephews, but I did manage to do a bit of holiday shopping.
I had a few other things going on and did not get a chance to spend time in my craft room - this is such a busy time of year. Wreaths were on my mind after the greens sale and I thought I would remind you of the wreath I made last year using a cut from the Pagoda cartridge. I don't think that would be the first cartridge you would think of to make a Christmas project but there is a cut on Pagoda that makes the most beautiful wreath.
I have seen a lot of projects using the Martha Stewart branch punch to make a wreath. I have this punch and use it a lot, however, the Pagoda cut makes a "fluffier" wreath and requires less individual pieces. You can also let the Cricut do the work and save your hands from all that punching!
Here is one card I made with this delicate branch cut. You can see all of the details and download my file to cut as many branches as possible on the same mat at the original post HERE.
I should be able to get some crafting time in Sunday - I really want to try out a few of the files I have waiting in my computer! I hope you are having a great weekend and that you are enjoying your holiday preparations.
