I was browsing Pinterest for some fun diy Christmas Gift ideas and came across this one from Avry on her blog: Craft Yourself. Such a cute idea and I love the text!! You can check out her version here.
Instead of using rolls of dough, I decided to go with the nice square packages of cookie dough because I thought they would be easier to wrap and accessorize.
Using my Cricut machine I cut out pieces to make a tag from the Accent Essentials Cartridge.
Then I prepared the text in Photoshop but any word processing program would work. Here is a copy of the finished product. If you prefer no to make your own tags, comment on my blog and maybe I’ll surprise you with a free printable!!
The card reads, “We could all use a little extra DOUGH this time of year. Merry Christmas from the Wilsons.
The tag is a total of 3 pieces. The outside piece is a Solid Tag from the Cricut using the SHIFT key at 3 inches. The interior blue frame is the same frame at 2 3/4 inches without the shift key this time. And the interior is printed on card stock and I just cut it out so it would go neatly between. I used Xyron Tape Runner to attach then hole punched for the twine. I used the twine to keep it all together and finish the pretty packaging. Here is the final product which I delivered on Christmas Eve.
My friends were very happy to receive these!! And it was fun getting to play Santa. The fun thing about this is that I think you could change the text to match many of the holidays. Something like “It’s not a Trick, Enjoy this Treat”. And use the awesome Pillsbury Halloween Cookies.
