Snowflake gift bag made using the Cricut Paper Trimmings cartridge.

Hello, everyone!

 Today I have a project made using the Cricut Paper Trimmings cartridge. Now if you do not have this cartridge because it is a Circle exclusive, you can use any cartridge that has a snowflake on it. Many of them have them.
I used Wonderland paper from Close To My Heart
This bag would work for Christmas, Hanukkah, or any winter birthday.
I cut the snow flake out at 7".
Tag the Occasion stamp set
Snowflakes stamp set
I cut out the snowflake shadow for the tag at 3". Then I stamped it using the Snowflakes and the Tag the Occasion stamp sets.

 November Specials:

November stamp of the month:





Holiday Wishes stamp set that is only $5 with a $25 stamp purchase.

When you place a minimum order of $25 in My Acrylix® stamp set starting today (until November 30th), you can purchase a new D-size Holiday Wishes stamp set for only $5! That’s significant savings off the full retail value of $17.95 US / $19.95 CAN. And here’s a bonus: many of the images in the set coordinate with our Cricut® Art Philosophy cartridge for added cutting and stamping fun! 
So to break it down, 
-If you spend $50 you get the November stamp of the month (retails price of $17.95) for $5.
-If you spend $25 in stamps, you get the Holidays Wishes stamp set (retail price $17.95) for $5!
-These two offers can be combined. For example, if you spend $25 in stamps and an additional $25 on anything else in the catalog you will get both stamp sets for a total of $10 ($5 per set).
You save $25.90! Which means the stamps practically pay for themselves!
*note* You MUST add discounted stamps to shopping cart when prompted by the system during checkout. Stamps cannot be added after the sale is complete and finalized. Also, adding the stamps to your cart BEFORE being prompted by this system will result in being charged full price for promotional stamps.

I have an older snowflake cartridge that is hard to make clean smaller snowflakes without breaking them.
Now you've given me a great way to use the snowflakes in a larger format impossible to break off and tear.
Thank you thank you once again. I am a BIG fan.
