Cricut Crafty Challenge #4- Christmas/Winter Decorations

Hi Everyone
It's Becka with Creations With Becka.
YAY!! Winter is here. Are you all ready for Christmas? I just finished decorating my house and the kids were so excited to get everything ready.
Ok, so on with the show. So, I thought it would be neat to have a Christmas Decoration challenge because I always see the cutest decorations in the stores but they are so expensive. And I always think to myself "Hmmm... I could totally make that." And of course I have so much crafting stuff, I wouldn't even have to buy anything.. LOL! So I thought I would put it to the test and see what I could come up with. Plus, I wanted to see other ideas & projects so I could try those too.
So if you visit my blog a lot than you probably know by now that I love to make banners. And I love the $1 bin at Michaels. Yes I know I did it again... I make a Christmas banner out of the $1 bin coasters. Who knew these little coasters would be so handy. LOL!
Anyways here is the banner I made:

Here are some up close pictures

Items needed to make this
4x4 coasters or cardstock
DCWV Christmas Cardstack
Birthday Bash Cartridge- letters cut at 3"
Art Philosophy Cartridge- Stocking cut at 2.65"
Christmas Cartridge- Holly Berry cut at 2.41"
Winter Frolic Cartridge- Presents cut at 2.65"
