Favorite Cutting Cafe Project

The design team is showcasing their favorite project that they made this year for The Cutting Café. That was so hard to do as I had many. Last month's Mason Jar box was probably my all time favorite, but since I just posted that, I chose this project that I made in June.

As you can see, it was also made with the Mason Jar Shaped Card Template and Cutting File. Hmmm...wonder what one of my favorite designs to create with are? LOL

Christmas Mason Jars

It's all about Christmas this week for the Cutting Cafe Design Team. We got to choose any file from Regina's Christmas file section to create with. I chose to use the holly from Christmas Bag Toppers and then a non-Christmas file; the mason jar from Mason Jar Shaped Cards to create my projects.

I love how they turned out. I got the idea to make these boxes from Pinterest here. I made my own pattern for a box to go between two cut jars. Then I wrapped some gold twine around the top and tied off with a jingle ball.

Each box has a packet of hot cocoa mix, some mini marshmallows, chocolate macchiato candy cane, and I will also add a ghiradelli chocolate when I am able to get to the store. I think these turned out really cute and plan to make a few more for gifts.

Cozy Sister Shoebox Swap



Monica and her sister Carrie hosted another Sister Shoebox Swap and I was able to participate. I have loved doing these swaps and have missed them as they took a break for awhile.

This year my swap partner was Tamara and we couldn't have been more perfectly matched. We were both going through some really tough stuff this year and were really able to relate to each other. I forgot to take a picture of everything I sent her and she doesn't have any social media to post on. But I did take pics of what she sent me....
