Warm and Cozy Wishes

Well I fit in another project today, hehehe.  I wanted to do the Cricut Circle challenge - Reuse, Repurpose and Recycle.  We are to reuse 3 items (I used a brown bag and coffee sleeve from a coffee shop and some Prima packaging - the little graph paper you see peeking out) and use 2 Cricut Cuts (I used Joys of the Season for the cup and Plantin Schoolbook for the ricrac).  I also did the Just Add Ink challenge - a bag or box and the Shoe challenge - sewing. This is going to be for a gift for a friend.  The pouch in front will hold a Starbuck's gift card and in the bag I will put some of the Chocolate Dipped pretzels.  The pattern papers and embellishments are from American Crafts - Adobe.

Sweet and a wonderful gift idea. The cup is a great shape and I think it's neat you recycled so many items. I'm always interested in where you add stitching...so clever.
