Cricut Box Makeover

At Christmas time I make inexpensive items for the school  to sell
at there Santa's Workshop. Years ago I ran this program and loved it.
Even though we moved away I still participate.
I also really like making stuff for the little ones to buy for their families.

 I don't store my Cricut cartridges in the boxes that they came in.
But I did save them. This what alot of them have become.

They don't cost a thing and they are pretty sturdy boxes.
(sure hate the new plastic ones)

So the School got a bunch of these this year!

Halloween Mini

Here is a Mini I made from Large Manila Envelopes.
This size is about 6 1/2" X 7". The paper line was DCWV.

Each tag holds a full size picture.

A few tags for the inside pockets.

Added some extra mats to some pages.

The decorations are store bought Chip board pieces.
I think they were K & Co. from last year.

Used a couple of Martha Stewart punches.

Glimmer mist on some of the tags.

Used some ribbon and sequin things I have had forever.

A few brads here and there.

This was really quick and easy Mini to make.
