It's a Silhouette Christmas!

I have been a Silhouette using FOOL all day!  This is my first Christmas season with my trusty little sidekick. Honestly, I don't know how I made it through the holidays without one before!

I spent a good chunk of the day cutting out the pieces for the gift card holders that I found in the Silhouette online store.  I had one book of scrapbook paper and a pack of black and kraft card stock, so I just aligned, cut, and glued 12 of these little beauties together.

While I was working on those and looking through my library of design files, I came across a reindeer and knew the perfect spot for this little guy.

I had made these blocks a week or so ago, but finally got around to taking pictures today.  If you've been around here before, you know I don't share gifts until they're given, but the chances of my dad seeing this are pretty darn slim, so here they are!  I'll share a tutorial on these later this week, but they were so easy, I'm sure anyone reading this can figure it out just by taking a peek at this photo!

And finally, because 12 gift card holders, a reindeer, cleaning, and cooking weren't enough, I decided that since we didn't have a Nativity, I needed to make one.  This was also a file from the Silhouette online store, I just sized it out to wrap around the front of the tub and cut it down into sections to apply it.  I love the way it turned out!

So that was all the Silhouette'n I got done today - and my own little bit of DIY Christmas!  

Have you been following along with the projects I've shared on Facebook and Pinterest?  I'd love to see your projects and share them with my family and friends!

OH - and if you love NYC - be sure to follow BohoWillow on Instagram!  I'll be visiting this week for work - and the office is just upstairs from "the" tree!
