DIY Christmas Gifts with Manayunk Calligraphy & Cricut

My favorite thing about Christmas (other than the made for TV holiday movies, of course) is all the making! Baking cookies, wrapping presents, building gingerbread houses and, of course, DIY gifts and decor.

I recently got a Cricut and now I don't know how I lived without it. It's the MOST FUN gadget. So much fun, that I made a bunch of designs that can be used with the Cricut or any other SVG cut machine. I partnered up with the oh-so-fabulous Stacey Gross from sWg Events in Philly who is a cut machine PRO to help me turn these designs into fun DIY holiday gifts and decor.
