Disney in a Frame

My sister loves Disney. . .probably more than I do! She and her husband just recently returned from a trip to Disney World. While there, they took full advantage of the Disney photographers and photo pass. She has some great photos, so I decided to create a frame for her to showcase her favorite photo. I took a collage frame I purchased a Michael's and added some vinyl I cut with my Cricut and the Mickey and Friends cartridge and viola! A gift I almost didn't give!

The frame as purchased:

I used CCR to hide all the interior cuts of the images and applied the vinyl to the outside of the frames. I inserted colored card stock to each frame. I then made a simple phrase in white vinyl and applied it to a piece of black card stock to fill the center frame. I cut the words Disney World 2012 in the black vinyl and applied those to the outside of the frame. When she removes the black card stock and replaces it with her photo, the words Disney World 2012 will still show to commemorate their trip.

If she doesn't like it, I'll gladly take it back!  :)

Snowman Treat Holder

Here's a couple of Snowman Treat Holders I made using Tie the Knot, Doodlecharms and CCR. The little one holds 2 Hershey nuggets and the bigger one holds 2  {possibly 3 but I only had 2 on hand} Ghirardelli squares. If you don't cut the flaps off that cross over inside the box, you could put quite a few M&Ms in there instead.

Elf Shoe Cookie Wrapper

Here's a quick and easy gift for co-workers or neighbors. It's an elf shoe that wraps around a stack of red filled Oreo cookies! I used the elf shoe from Teddy Bear Parade and a scallop circle from Craft Room Basics and CCR to make the wrapper. Just stack your Oreos in a clear treat bag {somehow the ribbon covering the twist tie when missing before the photo}, wrap the shoe around the stack and glue the sides of the shoe at the toe end. Fold down the flaps and glue the scallop circles onto the tip of the shoe. Viola! An Elf Shoe gift!
