I first saw this gorgeous idea on pinterest.com. Very cool, and so easy to do with the Cricut. I used Storybook cartridge and set the dial at 5 inches. I picked up the book specifically for the cover colors to do another project I have pinned on my pinterest boards, but that hasn't been completed yet. But now I have all these great pages to recycle for crafts. I also recycled a Cheez-its box. It is one of the sturdier ones out there so I save them every chance I get. I don't have a picture here, but I covered the printed side with the book print and left the kraft side out to the back. Since these are meant to be gift tags (really big gift tags) I will stamp a to: and from: on the backs.
I think they are pretty and rustic and unique. The ones I created for my family I am thinking I will use as Christmas ornaments after they open their packages. I hope everyone else finds a use for them afterwards also. A handmade monogram from me to them, sent with love.
