I am using mine to put in the teachers boxes at my work ( I work at a school )
Uses Cardstock, glue, and your Cricut....plus Doodlecharms or Christmas cheer cartridges.....
and a pepermint patty.
Cost : Im guessing ... pennies!!!
The peppermints need to look like this... any brand. I found mine at Walmart around $2 a bag.
I turned them into these!!!
I sandwiched the patties between two cardstock circles. ( flower shaped & 2 inches ) They do sell a 2 inch punch at Michaels I used my Cricut. But if you don't have a cricut you can use the punch and embellish with Stickers. ( That would just increase your cost a bit.)
Here is a back view that shows the shape of the circle. I used Accent Essentials
Cartridge and then wrote Merry Christmas with a white gel pen.
JACKI AND I MADE A TUN!
She went home with 36 and I had the same. I made about 16 more and still
had peppermints left over.... I only bought 2 bags!!!
This is a great project for scraps... I of course did not use scraps. ( ** I can hear
you ladies who know me laughing about that! :)
Here is the run down on cost....
2 base color and - 2-3 additional colors per design made about 20 !
( Example: Cardstock 2 red, 1 flesh color, 1-2 white and 1 red )
About $2 per design in Cardstock.
Peppermints $4 ( 2 bags )
Embellished with what I had on hand / scraps ( these I do save ) $ 0.00
Total cost about $10 for 85 or so. About 11 cents each!!!

I am the mother of two great kids. Keith is almost 21 and Kamryn is almost 18. I have been married to my very supportive and loving husband David for 21 years.I have been a crafter almost all my life. I had a teacher in 3rd or 4th grade who taught cross stitching and that was the start of it all. I have cross stitched, tole painted, knitted,made beaded jewelry, and now I am a Scrapbooker. I have been scrappin' for about 12 years.
(2 years cards and stamping, 10 years album making) I started making cards and it just didn't grab me like scrapbooking the 12x12's. I think it is all about my love for the pretty papers especially since I seem to have more pages without pictures! :)
This blog is where I will share my work for you to enjoy. I hope you like it!
