Here's my project I have to share with you today:
*Mini Monograms cartridge
*Cooking With Cricut = Digital stamp
*Twine = Timeless Twine (red & green), The Twinery (reds & white)
*My Mind's Eye = candy cane patterned paper
*Stickles in various colors

*I love embellishing my cuts and digi stamps with Stickles.  It's so easy to do, but adds a big punch of sparkle!

*I used my crop-a-dile Big Bite to punch the holes around the squares.  Then I just threaded the twine through the holes.  I didn't have to use a needle since the holes were big enough :)
