It's Time to Make Some Christmas Gifts

I was at the FedEx store the other day and came across their express envelopes and it is the perfect size and thickness to use to make those famous word books. I had a idea to make one for my niece for Christmas. She will be graduating from High School this year has been a cheerleader for her school for all 4 years of school. I went to the local scrapbook store where they live and found paper that was from her High School so I could decorate it in her school colors Red and Black.
I thought is turned out great although it took me much long to make than I intended. I did need to make doubles of the FedEx chipboard it wasn't just thick enough,(Hey it was free) but I did use the deep cut blade on my Cricut set on #3 and High pressure and it cut just fine. I used the Mickey and Friends Cartridge. I really like to use this Cartridge for word books the chunky letter seem to work the best.
I just love tying ribbon in unusual places
I added a little flower on a paperclip.
You can never have too much ribbon. Okay, well I have to clean up and move on to my other projects. I will post them when I am finished which needs to be soon. Christmas seems to becoming a little too fast for me.If you have a LAUREN in your life and want to have the cut file just let me know I would be happy to share it.
