Who doesn't love a Secret Santa gift exchange?! I know I do! So, of course, when Cricut asked me to team up with another blogger and create a gift from the Make It Now section in their design space, I simply could not turn them down!

The best part about creating something from the Make It Now section is that all the thinking has already been done for you and all you need to do is follow the simple instructions. I have the hardest time not overthinking things and spent at least an hour deciding what I was going to make. Silly me!

I ended up going with something so easy, which I could embellish a little on my own. This 3D Christmas tree would be so cute as a table decoration or on a mantle. Once my tree was cut out and glued together, I embellished it by adding glitter to the top. I tried not to be too perfect or precise, but instead went for a natural (if you can call glitter natural) or artistic application. I think it would be fun to make a bunch of these in a variety of colors for the biggest impact!

I am so excited to send this beauty off to Sara, the Clever Pink Pirate. I hope she likes her clever, pink Christmas tree!
