Some Last Minute Christmas Crafts

Hello and welcome to Exploring Cricut and More. Today I am sharing some last minute crafts to help with your Christmas packaging. I love to decorate my packages with homemade tags and embellishments.  Today I am sharing a couple Poinsettias I made for my gifts.  These were made with the Cricut Explore and can also be made with the Silhouette Cameo or other cutting machines.  I only work with these two so that is all I know how to work.  These beautiful flowers come from SVGCuts and they are from the 3D Wintergreen set. 
I made this one with the shiny glimmer cardstock in white.  I also put them together using a brad instead of gluing them together and I could move the petals around the way I wanted them.  They made a beautiful addition to my package for my hair stylist!
For the second one I chose another design from that set and I did glue this one together and added a jewel in the center of it.  I glued it to the ribbon and now my package for my friend looks wonderful.  Be sure to check out these designs at
My older kids get money for Christmas, but I like to put it a nice little box.  Today I am sharing a couple I made with the Silhouette Cameo.  I purchased these files in the Silhouette store but Cricut lovers can  purchase the first one Santa Pillow Box #107836 at the Silhouette Store or at  The second one is Santa Claus Gift Box #70569 at the Silhouette store or at   I hope you liked these projects today and if you did, please give me a shout out!!! 
On a personal note, I had the most amazing time on my Disney Vacation.  I am very tired since we just got back, but will rest up this week.  All the shopping is done and a few things to wrap and we call it done!!!!  Lots and lots of pictures to go through.  Scrapbooking is on my to do list for 2016!!!
