DIY Stocking Idea with Martha Stewart and Cricut

DIY Stocking Idea with Martha Stewart and Cricut

Hey y’all! I’m back again with another project that I created in collaboration with Cricut, Michaels, and Martha Stewart, and I can hardly wait to share this one with you!

It’s fast, it’s affordable, and it’s so darn cute!!! I’ll give you the full “how to” for this DIY Stocking Idea below, but I hope you’ll use it as a baseline to get your creative juices flowing. The possibilities are endless here!

Obviously, most people personalize stockings to hang in their home, but think outside of the box, too! In this case, I used the stocking as gift wrap.

The holidays can be super stressful, and I thought my girlfriends might want some wine to help them cope through the craziness. I gussied up a simple stocking using my Cricut Explore Air 2 Martha Stewart Bundle and the brand new Cricut EasyPress 2 Martha Stewart Edition, tucked some chocolate and wine inside, and voila! A sanity-saver in a stocking! ;)

This would also be a great gift for neighbors, Christmas Party hostesses, your boss…heck, anyone really. The point is, don’t be afraid to add your own spin to the personalization (there are a slew of fun options in Design Space), or even the gift inside. It doesn’t have to be wine…it can be anything!

I mean, let's face it.  Is there anyone out there that doesn't need a little sip or two of an adult beverage to get through the holiday craziness?  If you happen to have a neighbor that might answer yes to that question, then fill this wine bottle gift wrap with sparkling cider instead (and send me that adult beverage)!

Donut Gift Tags for National Donut Day

Donut Gift Tags for National Donut Day

If you're like me, you don't need an excuse to eat donuts.

But for those of you that do, thank goodness they've created a holiday just for you:  National Donut Day!

Yeah, baby!  This year it falls on Friday, June 5th.

It's a day where we can splurge on these sweet little bites of Heaven to our heart's content, and don't have to worry for a second about calories.

Yep, that's right.  Did you know that donuts are totally calorie-free on National Donut Day?!!  (At least that's what I choose to believe, so if you think otherwise, don't rain on my parade, ok)?

And because everyone should be entitled to indulge, wouldn't it be nice if we paid it forward and gifted donuts to all of our friends?

I think yes, and I was certain you'd agree, so I created some fun little donut gift tags for the occasion.
