Cricut Christmas at the Office

As with everything else this year we had a very small budget to decorate my office. (I'm talking less than $20 here.) So I broke out the Cricut and the cheap paper. I even used some bent up file folders that we were throwing out (they were used multiple times and were in bad condition, but I cut them up to get to the good spots.) I used a bunch of cartridges for this one, which was easy because I have a Gypsy!

The penguins and polar bears are from Joys of the Season. The igloo is from Create a Critter. For the snow I drew a template using my coffee cup and freehand connected it. Then I cut it out and transferred it to a role of white craft paper. We had to hand cut it out from there. More that 50' of hand cut snow border!

The font is from Winter Woodlands. It's hard to see in this picture but I cut the green shadow letters also, and there are cutouts in each of the red letters that make it look fancy. I made the candy cane poles by wrapping the pole with white paper and then winding red ribbon around it.

And what is the North Pole without Santa? This is also from Joys of the Season. We made some modifications to the pieces and used yellow yarn for the reins.

This tree is also from Winter Woodlands. I had the ornament confetti from my Christmas cards, so I recruited a co-worker or two to help me hot glue each piece to the trees. I then punched little stars out of a sheet of Best Creations Gold Glitter Cardstock. There are 20 trees in all.

The banner flags are from Tie the Knot. I had them left over from another project, so I threw them in. One says NOEL (I know its hard to see in this picture, but it looks better in person) and the other is JOY.
