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.
