When it comes to making a picture-perfect, handmade holiday, Lia Griffith is pretty much the expert. Not only is she an absolute wizard when it comes to making things with paper (no, seriously), but the lady knows her way around a Cricut Explore better than most. Here’s how you can use some of Lia’s and fellow Creativebug instructor Courtney Cerruti’s Cricut projects to create an eye-catching, handmade holiday season.
DIY Gift Bags
Whether you bought the perfect present or you spent November and December lovingly crafting gifts by hand, the perfect final touch for any present is a custom wrap job. Lia Griffith has designed gift bags that are not only crazy-simple to make but are absolute showstoppers.
Use paper that fits your holiday décor or choose something that goes with the present inside. The world is your paper oyster.
Color Splash Stickers
For this project, mixed-media artist Courtney Cerruti combined the soft, fluid nature of watercolors with the precise edge and usefulness of a Cricut-cut sticker. This is the perfect – and shockingly easy – way to personalize gifts while keeping the look professional. All it takes is a few swipes of the brush, some sticker paper, and you’ll have the best-looking wrap job in town.
If you’re updating your pantry, making preserves for the holidays, or packaging up hostess gifts, Lia Griffith’s charming jar labels will put your jars and boxes on-trend instantly. All you need to do is print and cut the labels, then add your own handwritten details for that extra-special finishing touch.
