Gifts Galore Fantabulous Cricut Challenge

Howdy friends!!  It is getting closer to Christmas day, have you finished shopping??  No?  Me neither!!  Maybe the challenge this week at Fantabulous Cricut will help you get motivated to craft some gifts and packaging this year!  LOTS of cool ideas from the Design Team this week!!  The challenge is to create a handmade gift or gift packaging.  This week I decorated a couple of packages of gourmet cocoa for some simply 'sweet' gifts.

How cute are these??  I almost want to put these in my own stocking to open up and enjoy!  Hee hee :)  The best thing about the packaging (besides it being cute) is that I used ALL scraps!  **Not a single full sheet of paper was harmed in the making of the packaging ** ;)

Here's how I made these:
Wrap a piece of cardstock around the width of the cocoa package and cut to length, score and fold for a tight crease if desired.  Cut a rectangle decorative piece to adhere to cardstock, then cut out a tag to adhere to the decorative piece.  Cut desired image to place on the tag.  Stamp a sentiment and embellish!  Oh yeah - and I attached a chocolate dipped peppermint stick for stirring the cocoa onto the back!  Easy packaged cocoa gift!!  Have a Fantabulous Week!!  Please play along with us  - I can't wait to see what you come up with!
