Here are a few more Holiday projects for inspiration.

Scrapdoodles this past week. I picked up a few sheets from the Twig line from Little Yellow Bicycle. I really loved the white and brown with the bright blues. I decided to make a garland from the 3 sheets I picked up and the little pack of mini pompoms. I simply cut some scalloped circles out with my Cricut and then strung them together with the little pompoms using fishing line and a needle. I tied the ends to a small piece of blue pipe cleaner that I bent and secured into a circle. That way nothing slid off and the loops on each end make the garland easy to hang. I did add some glitter glue across each of the circles as an after thought. The fishing line was a bit slippery and the glitter glue I spread on the circles helped secure the line in place. I think it will look great on a little mini Christmas tree with some blue or white lights.I had lots of fun sitting down with some products from
Official Cricut Blog and set out to make my own version for Little Miss H. at the Thanksgiving table. For mine, I first taped (on the back) 2 sheets of DCWV fall paper to create a 12x24 mat base. I cut a white 10 inch square and centered it on the mat, then adhered skinny strips of patterned paper to mark the squares. I chose fall-themed cuts from the following Cricut cartridges: Create a Critter, Designer's Calendar, and B is for Boy. There's a spot to put her drink and a spot to lay out her utensils and I created a pocket from a clear envelope to hold the game pieces. I then laminated the entire placemat with clear contact paper. I laminated the playing pieces, too. I think she'll like it and it is a good way to keep her at the table longer. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
