BBTB2 Challenge: Ornament or Holiday Symbol

Hi all!

Is everyone buried in holiday shenanigans like me???  We have 8 birthdays and our anniversary in our immediate families all within a month (or much closer) to Christmas so it is extra insanity around here!  My oldest grandson will be 2 next week so I am making his some Thomas the Tank Engine cookies on top of the usual slew of Christmas cookies - if I make it to New Years it will be a miracle!  Hahaha!

This week's challenge on Bitten By the Bug 2 is to use a Christmas or other winter holiday symbol on a project.

I hand out Starbucks gift cards at my daughter's school so I make little gift card holders using a cut called Card Holder with insert from Fabulous Finds.  If you want to make one the width of the Holder is 5.75" and the insert is 3.1"  She really liked this little happy face ornament from Simply Charmed.  I have 6 more to make.  Glad I can cut them out so quickly thanks to my Cricut!

Head over to BBTB2 and see the other amazing projects from the design team and then make something to enter in our challenge!


  1. This is adorable, Marti! Love that happy ornament :)

  2. great idea for gift cards. I love the Simply Charmed cartridge, easy cutting and assembly for mass production. Happy Holidays to you. I also have my grandson turning 2 next week - and am hosting his birthday dinner - his favorite is Thomas the Train too. You just gave me an idea --- thanks.
