MCT 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS ~ DAY 12

Hello there again! And WELCOME to the FINAL day of the My Creative Time 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop! If you've arrived here from Glora's blog, then you are headed in the right direction! If not, please start at Emma's blog HERE!

***12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS GIVE AWAY ALERT***
To qualify for ALL of the AMAZING giveaways for the next 12 days, you must comment on every blog in this hop! You will have until Tuesday, December 13th @ midnight to have all of your comments in! VERY IMPORTANT, PLEASE LEAVE A WAY FOR US TO CONTACT YOU IF YOU ARE ONE OF THE WINNER'S! There are some AMAZING giveaways for this special 12 day event and some SURPRISES to help celebrate "My Creative Times's" One Year Anniversary! Yep, Emma released her 1st set of stamps one year ago! So make sure you are tuned in because this is ONE hop you do NOT want to miss!

And now... onto my very last project!

I chose to go with a gift holder for today's project! I found this super cute favor box on the Spring Holiday Cards Cricut cartridge. I sized it on my Gypsy so it was right at 11 1/2 inches in length. I used one of the layers on the same cartridge, but I made it smaller, so you could still see my patterned paper on the favor box itself. Because of this, I had to use the hide contour feature to hide the cut marks in the corner of the top layer and on the box itself. The paper is from the Winter Combo stack and the Merry Christmas stack by DCWV. I used some Timeless Twine to wrap around the box and then tie my sentiment on. I used the My Creative Time Curly Label die and the sentiment is from the MCT All Around Christmas stamp set. I also used that fabulous Tim Holtz Antique Photo distress ink to ink up the edges and give it a little vintage feel.




You can view and purchase all of the My Creative Time stamps and dies HERE!!

Your next stop in the hop is the AMAZINGLY talented KATIE!!

Blog Hop Line Up:
Emma - Start here!
Jeanne - That's me!
Katie - Your next stop!
Veronica
Kelley

I hope you have enjoyed hopping along with us for these 12 days of Christmas! Now it's time to take a break and spend some quality time with our families. I always love this time of year, because (my kids are always on their best behavior, lol) I just LOVE seeing the sparkle in their eyes when they look at that Christmas tree and see those presents!

So Happy Holidays to all of you and your wonderful families!
