Paper Playtime Challenge #11- 2 or more ribbons!

Happy Thursday everyone! I am happy that I had a little time this morning to visit some blogs and do a quick post! It's the little things that make me happy!

For today's project I am sharing a couple of embellished bags I made for two baby showers I recently attended.
I used the Nursery Tales cartridge and my Cricut Imagine.
Aren't these images just yummy! Hard to believe I started with white cardstock! The images were cut at 3" using the layer feature. I would love to have cut them bigger, but I needed them to fit on my bag. I inked the edges and ran them through my Cuttlebug. The background paper on the bag is from DCWV baby girl stack and I used my Fiskars Treading Water punch.
I created a little "clothesline" using some twine and added the polk a dot bows because they were just so cute. I love the mini clothespins too. Such a perfect embellishment.

Another tip when I am making these bags: I try to make the background paper easily removable (you could just cut around it too) so that the design can be used as part of a scrapbook layout. Just add it to a 12x12 piece of paper, add photos and journaling and that's it!

Please take a minute to visit Paper Playtime to see the wonderful projects that were created for this challenge!

Thank you so much for stopping by, and be sure to create something today!
