Deck the Halls

It's time for another Paper Crafting World Challenge! This time our theme is Deck the Halls and we were challenged to create an ornament. I saw a great post on one of the cricut blogs about using a mini pillow box as a little shadow box ornament and thought I would give it a try. I cut the pillow box from wrap it up at 7.5 inches and flood filled it with a fun pattern from Christmas Wish on my Imagine. I then cut an opening out of the front with a nestability. I colored these adorable little kitties in winter attire digital stamp with my copic markers. These little guys are just too cute!! I put the kitties on the back of the pillow box with some pop dots. I then added a poinsettia and a handle so I could hang it on the tree. If I had more time I would have made the inside of the box a different pattern so you could see the dimension more, but my Imagine mat was sticky and kept cutting my blue rectangle in half so this was the best solution I could come up with.

We would love for you to play along with us at www.cookingwithcricut.com and don't forget to check out our 25 days of Christmas celebration with new posts every day in December!
