Exlporing Cricut Challenge "It's a Spring Thing"

Hello Everyone and welcome to another fabulous challenge over at Exploring Cricut.
This week's challenge was really fun. Your project has to include 1 button, 2 Cricut Cuts, and 3 patterned paper and/or cardstock and welcome spring!

I decided on my Imagine for this project. Lori's Garden has some wonderful images that remind me of spring. I can always use some decorated gift bags and I love to keep them handy.



I started with a white gift bag.



Using the print and cut feature, I chose the scalloped oval stock image cut at 8" with one of the patterns available from that cartridge.

Next I print and cut the lady bugs using the layer feature...4.5", 3.5" and 3".



The tag was also cut from this cartridge, I chose this one because the patterned paper was similar to the scalloped oval.

After inking the edges of all the pieces with Tea Dye distressed ink, I assembled the tag and ladybugs. I used foam tape for dimension and on the large ladybug, I used Paper Trey Inks Vintage Buttons in Melon Berry and Button Twine.



 The tag was also cut from this cartridge, I chose this one because the patterned paper was similar to the scalloped oval. I added a couple of buttons to tie it altogether and  used a 1/8" hole punch and Button Twine to attach to bag.

  


Be sure to check out all of the wonderful projects the Design Team has come up with and don't forget to play along!! You'll be sure to find lots of Cricut inspiration.
