Princess Party Gifts

Happy Monday!
So I have been working on my daugther's Pricess party all weekend and I am so excited to share with you today what I came up with.  Have any of you tried Cricut Craft Room yet? It is a free design software that Cricut came out with that can be used with all of your Cricut Machines. Well I was one of the Beta testers on the software and at first it had so many issues that I hated the program. I just couldn't figure it out and I have a gypsy so I thought no way am I ever going to like this CCR.... Well, I watched some videos on how to use it and then tested it out this weekend. Happy to say the bugs and the problems I was having with it before seem to be worked out. And if you have an Imagine CCR is perfect for you. You can place the images anywhere on the mat and it is so much easier to use then the Imagine screen. I still love my Gypsy for all of my Expression work, but I think CCR is so easy to use with the Imagine and I am so excited I have finally figured out how to use it.
So this months Cricut Circle Magazine challenge is to create something in the CCR.
I am telling you this because this weekend I designed my own Princess paper with CCR and the Imagine and I just love the way it turned out.
I just love the way it turned out. I didn't have any kind of Princess paper on hand and I am trying not to buy more supplies and use what I have, so I thought this is the perfect solution.

Here are the gift boxes I made with this paper.
I used the Sweet Tooth Boxes cartridge and cut at 11.5". These are meant for cupcakes but I am going to put the party gifts in them.
Thank you for visiting me today.
