Today's post shows how quick and easy you can make gift bags for your family and friends using regular bags from Michaels (or even repurposing bags!) and your Cricut!
I made the bag above for my daughter for Valentine's Day and put some candy in it for her. She's now in middle school and the days of Valentine's parties are over....I can't believe it! I used paper from the WRMK (We R Memory Keepers) Valentine's stack and the Cupcake Cricut Lite cartridge. I love this shaped word art!
I cut the "take a bite" word art at 3-1/4", both layers and then used black pen to add some stitching. I cuttlebugged the background with the large plaid Cuttlebug folder and then layered it with pink. I used a bag from Michaels that measured 9" x 6" (approximately). Ribbon from Michaels.
The cupcake shaped "K" is from the Cupcake cartridge and is cut at 3-1/4". Then I embossed it using the Cuttlebug and the Divine Swirls folder.
I made this bag for my son using the Cricut Street Sign Solutions cartridge cut at 2-1/2". Heart was from Plantin Schoolbook at 2-1/2". Ribbon by Stampin Up! Same concept as above. I love how quickly this went together.
This last bag was a repurposed Coldwater Creek bag. I used the Cricut Zoo Day cartridge and cut the animals at 2-1/4" using the child's name. Wiggle eyes felt like a fun addition.
So, here are three quick ways to make fun gift bags using your Cricut. None of these bags took more than 10-15 minutes to do - the hardest part was choosing paper.
