Believe gift bag made using the Sophie cartridge and American Alphabet cartridges

Hello, everyone!

Today I have an easy project that I made using the Sophie cartridge (this cartridge is a Cricut Circle Exclusive). This is a little trick I learned from Joy. She makes a lot of her own gift bags, so I thought it would be great to try a Christmas one. Let's face it we all need more ideas on wrapping Christmas gifts!

Now if you are not int he Cricut circle and you want to do something similar, you can find GREAT Christmas trees on Martha Stewart Seasonal cartridge, Designer's Calendar, and Hello Kitty Grettings!

The paper is from SU! and the bag is from Joann's.
I cut out the tree out at 7 1/2".
I cut out 'believe; using the All American alphabet at 1".
I hope you have all had a great week, so far! I have been a busy little bee doing tutorials over on my other blog. It is lots of fun, but also very time consuming. I hope they have been helpful.


If you have not seen them make sure you head over to my blog to check them out by clicking ==> Courtney Lane Designs

Don't forget that we are giving away the Cricut Formal Occasion cartridge this week!

How can you win?

That's it!

 Have a TERRIFIC Thursday!
