Christmas Gifts Blog Hop November 26 Day 1







Hi Ladies
Thank you for visiting my blog, today is the Christmas Gift blog hop with Becka from Creations with Becka  creationswithbecka.blogspot.com.  If you came from Julie over at http://jk-littlebitofbling.blogspot.com/ then you are in the right place, if you just stopped by please start at the beginning of the hop at Creations With Becka.
 Ok so today is going to be a fun day of great ideas for homemade Christmas gifts for the special people in your lives, like family, friends, co-workers and teachers.   We thought it would be a great idea since times are rough to showcase all the different presents you can made at home and for little money. Plus, I think homemade presents are the best, because they really show how much you care and how much thought and effort you put into them.
What I did for my project today is I made a Christmas Charger. Which can be used as a house decoration on a table or in your kitchen. I plan on giving this to my mom with a box of homemade fudge! If you also have the time you can make a set of 4, 6, or 8 give these as gifts for someone who can display them on their dining room table during Christmas dinner.


 The cricut cartridge used for this project was Christmas. The font I used my MTC (Make the Cut) and I believe I used Curlz. the vinyl is brushed gold for the deer, silver for the letters and green for the tree. I used my hot fix rhinestones to add some bling to my plate. The letters and Deer are cut at I believe 2" and the tree was 8.07 on the Gypsy. 
I'll be showing my blog candy on day 2!!! stay tuned!!!! :))))


Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed my project for today. Your next stop is Beckie
