DSC_0031-001I used the new feature of the Print then Cut of the Cricut Explore for these treat bags and decided I’d hang them across my window. I created a Christmas advent calendar. I found these fun treat bags at Target for $1 and they came with 8 each, perfect! I used the Scandinavian Christmas Cartridge for the stickers as well.

DSC_0015I used the printable Vinyl Sticker Paper which is available here. You can read my post about when I made these Halloween Treat Bags on how to do the Print then Cut method. You just stuff these with any little treat you want for you or your youngster. Fold them over and place the sticker to seal them. I used some Thickers from American Crafts to mark the days on them and some old school clothespins that I got from Joann’s

DSC_0010When using this feature there are bleed lines so that when it cuts you are guaranteed to have your image cut all the way with color. I had no images that had white borders or that had cut off mark. I use this feature a lot for my kids as rewards or just as a fun way for motivation. I love this decor.  Check back later on when I’ll be having some more decor pieces that I made with my Cricut Explore, in the mean time – see what else the ladies from Team 16 came up with and don’t forget to enter the giveaway!

XOXO, Lindsay

    I’d help my kids make some fun Halloween costumes! We’re running late on plans, like usual, but we always have fun creating awesome looks.

    If it’s possible to cut felt, I would cut lots of leaves for a Christmas wreath I’ve been wanting to make.

    I think I would make just about everything I could think of. Quilt appliques, wall décor, scrapbooks, cards and on and on and on.

    Lots of scrapbooking would get done and the first would be my last vacation with my late husband. Then I would start working on the new chapter of my life which I am very blessed to have. I would also make lots of cards for my family and friends.

    I would use the Cricut Explore to make family scrapbooks of all our travels!! I have pictures from as far back as 30 years ago! Also, I homeschool and it would be a great addition to our home school!

    I would love to create some wall decor for my baby-to-be’s nursery (blue and whale themed) and for our living room. I also enjoy making clothes and blankets and would love to create some appliques that I can’t do well with my Cricut mini.

    I would make cards — lots of cards. I never realized how much my family liked my cards until I wasn’t able to keep up, and had to send purchased cards. The Explore, especially the Print and Cut, would help me to make cards faster. Thanks for the opportunity to win this great machine!

    I have no idea what I would do with this new machine. I just bought a used Expression and am a newbie at all this. I have been reading blogs and watching Youtube videos. I don’t know what to start with!
