Christmas Paper Crafts + {Giveaway} Win a Cricut Mini Digital Cutter

Making decorations and gifts for Christmas, is our favourite type of craft! At this time of year, our Cricut machine gets a good work out – making Christmas tags, cards, decorations, favour boxes, table decorations, and gifts. One of the best features of the Cricut is that it can cut a wide variety of papers, card, vinyl, etc so that you can put your own special touch on your projects.
As you can see, we love the reindeer die cut from Very Merry Tags, and have used it on gift tags, on gift boxes, to decorate a lantern, and more. We even used our Cricut to cut pillow boxes and gift boxes to use as part of our Christmas Table last year.

We recently reviewed Cricut’s latest machine, the Cricut Mini, and you can read our review here. What we love most about this machine is that it is small and compact. It can be easily hooked up via a USB cable to your computer. Once you have installed the software, you can access lots of free images at the Cricut Craft Room. You can also use cartridges with the mini or you can purchase digital images online. There are loads of project ideas to get your started.

    I have so many christmas crafts planned, but many will have to wait as I’ll be away until Dec 21. I’ve made my christmas cards, and am hoping to make some mini puddings and a gingerbread house. Also wanting to make something to hang my christmas cards on at home, they make a house look so festive!

    I’m currently working on our cards with overlapping ornament stamps, I got everything together for a new wreath, and I always make my sequinned balls each year by putting a pushpin through a sequin and inserting (approximately 1 million) of them into a Styrofoam ball. They turn out so pretty!

    Thanks for the awesome giveaway!!!

    ♥♥I’m making funky christmas tags with a South-African twist…think designs of “Springbok” instead of reindeer, “baobab-tree” instead of traditional xmas tree and probably some quirky “snowman” not from snow, but from mud (due to all the rain we had lately…!) Convinced that the Cricut Mini will be very happy and much utilised here in sunny SA!♥♥

  11. says

    Always love your paper crafts, especially the gift tags and packaging. I would love to win one of these Cricuts someday. I have a few Christmas crafts planned, such as making cards to send out to friends and family, making ornaments for a couple annual exchanges, and making a felt garland. I’m sure more spontaneous projects will pop up at the last minute 😉

    Dec 2 is our ornament party. everyone brings supplies for a ornament, and we spend the afternoon making them, there is kind of a contest to make ornaments with stranger and stranger supplies. We make stone soup, everyone brings one veggie to add to a simple chicken soup. We have been doing this over 20 years.

    I’m just now starting to get into the holiday spirit. I had major surgery last week, so I really can’t do much but gather ideas, and since I can’t do much, making cards will be the easiest, so your product would be perfect for me to use during my recovery.

    I am making Christmas Crackers from scratch and personalising the contents for each family member. I love the idea of crackers but most of the store bought ones look fantastic but don’t have very good gifts inside. It is such great fun making them!
