Challenge Time at Exploring Cricut!

Hello and happy Monday.
Today is the start of a new challenge at Exploring Cricut
The design team has created some wonderful projects sure to inspire you!
Are you ready?? This is a favorite of mine.
Challenge: "Bag, Box, or Tag " Create one of
these and include a ribbon don't forget to use your Cricut Cartridges!

My project was inspired by an upcoming trip to the Caribbean my boss and her hubby were taking. I made this bag with a little island inspiration inside as a bon voyage!

I used the Pack Your Bags Cartridge and cut the image at 6.0". I used the layers feature with the exception of the umbrella as I thought it would be fun to use a real paper umbrella instead. I did a bit of embossing and added some enamel dots to the flip flops and foam tape for dimension.

Thank you so much for visiting my little blog today... Are you ready to start creating your project??
What are you waiting for....get crafting..

Have a wonderful day!

I really like the paper umbrella and the "liquid" in the glass-great use of your patterned paper! The flip flops are so cute!

Fabulous colors and patterns and embossing too!! I wish it were summer already, and I could wear flip flops (awesome touch).
