Not a creature was stirring...not even THIS MOUSE!

Here's a quick little project that makes perfect favors for a child's class Christmas (or holiday) party, since they really are non-denominational.  They are also adorable tree ornaments that you can double as small gifts for a child who's visiting.  I made them last year for my co-workers with candy cane pens instead of real candy ones.  The possibilities are endless for this quick and easy holiday craft!

Cartridges Used: George, TBBM

Thanks for the file. We used to make these from felt when I was younger. It will be nice to be able to do these with my kids using the Cricut.

Hi! I am a new Gypsy user and I was so excited to see your cute little mouse. I want to make them for my daughter's class. I went to download your gypsy file, but was unable to open it and I have really no idea how to get it to my gypsy. I am sure it is operator error, but I would love it if you could tell me what I need to do to use your great file. Thanks so much!

Super cute Cindy, thank you so much for sharing your file, I made about 30 of these little mice in the last few days to give to my son's class, and teachers. I hope you don't mind if I share the pics of mine on my blog giving you credit of course! Merry Christmas!

I downloaded your gypsy file for this and made 18 of them for my DD's Kindergarten class. She helped me tape all the pieces on and put the candy canes in. She was thrilled with how cute they were and that she got to help. Her teacher sent a note home saying how all the kids loved the mouse and that my DD was so talented. DD said that she made them and mom just cute the pieces out. LMAO. TFS all your files, you are so creative!
