It's in the mail

I'm still not 100% satisfied with this one yet. Not sure how many have cut the file yet but I can tell you I'll be making updates to the file now that I've had a chance to make it.
The size is large at 6" in length, 3 3/4" width and 4 3/4" height.



The original flag is too small so I will be making that bigger for sure.



Also, the opening end doesn't close perfectly. And that is why I'm not 100% happy with it just yet. I hope to fuss with it some more tomorrow.

I used my 3x3 "top note" .cut file for the tag and decorated with green and red markers.

And inside I was able to put one of my 3-D star ornaments. As you can see there is LOTS of extra space to add other treats.

Here's a close up so you can see the dimension of the star


Dimensions are 5 1/2" x 5 3/4" and 1" depth. As soon as the glitter glue dries I will put the hanging cord on.



Details:
  • CricutDS- mailbox: George; top note: George; 3D Star: George
  • Donation amount $1 each (Donate button is at the top right. Please specify which file/format you want when you purchase.
  • Papers: DCWV glitter stack, scraps of white and red
  • Red glitter glue
  • Ribbon: Costco 2007 holiday ribbon collection
