I was inspired by some cards Angie at My Chic'n Scratch made using one sheet of patterned paper to create four cards and a cute little gift box! You add in your own cardstock for the base of the cards. I created a different focal image on the front of mine, but used her directions to make the bases for my cards and box.
After I covered the card bases with Believe paper from Heidi Swapp I used my Cricut Explore to cut these sweet gingerbread cutouts from the Cricut Gingerbread cartridge. I used coloured pencils to colour in some of the areas of my cookies and then used Glossy Accents to add a shine over top. Some Stickles on my wreath and trees add some more shimmer!
I used the inner cuts from the tree to create a tag cut from kraft cardstock. A couple stripes of this fun Christmas paper and a bit of candy cane twine give it a festive look tied to this quick and easy box.
Here's a close up of all four cards:
