Blog Hop Day 2!

Welcome back to the Cooking With Cricut Christmas Blog Hop, day 2! I have a fun new project for you- even if I do say so myself ;) This project is utilizes another of the adorable Scrapbookeden.com images- this time Gingerbread House 2009.


For this project- I tried to do something new for me. Shocker! Anyway, I made this candy dish for my desk... Or as a gift. It was really supposed to be a gift for a friend, but then I've really fallen in love with it, so we'll see. lol. Anyway, I used basic cardstock from my stash and then ran all the white, minus the smoke curl through my xyron and added white glitter. The smoke curl got light blue stickles. The gingerbread house is adhered to an acrylic box that used to hold a collectible- the beanie baby had already been given to my daughter a while ago and the box needed a reinvention ;)
