12 Days of Christmas

After reading a terrific post on the Close To My Heart Facebook page, I decided to do the 12 Days of Christmas for some friends of mine. The hardest part was figuring out what to put into each of the bags or containers since they are really not very large! That takes some creative thinking! 

I have already missed a couple of days so I am behind with my posts but here was the first day. 

I wanted to do cupcakes but no matter how hard I tried, I could not cut the box from the Artiste cartridge large enough to fit a reasonable size cupcake, even with a 12x24 inch mat. There was all sorts of space left over in the cutting diagram that I couldn't delete... So, I ended up going with a pair of tarts instead and creating these boxes that ended up being about 4x4 inches and approx. 2 inches in height. 

Tune in tomorrow for another idea - daily through until Christmas Day!
