I made simple gifts to give out to the first communion students this year at our church. For this project I made candy bar wrappers to fit regular Hershey bars. I made some white and some a light lavendar that I don't think shows up well in the pic. I cut the cardstock 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches and then ran through my cuttlebug to emboss. I used the fiskars flower embossing plate since the paper fit perfectly on the plate. The goblets are cut at 3 1/2 inches from the My World Cricut cart using gold foil paper. The cross is from the Wedding Cricut cart cut at 3/4 inch on blackout setting. The circles were cut at 1 inch using George Cricut cart. I used another gold paper I had for contrast on the goblets. The gold foil paper is very light weight but was easy to cut with the cricut. I put the blade depth at 4 and cut on low speed and light pressure.
