Cricut Sophie Gift Bag

 Today's fun and elegant gift bag was made using the Cricut Sophie cartridge (Circle exclusive).  I loved this damask type shape and thought it would be gorgeous on the front of a gift bag.  I tried it initially with black as the center part and white as the shadow, but it didn't look as good as this.

If you don't have the Sophie Cricut cartridge, similar shapes can be found on Elegant Cakes, Damask Decor (a gorgeous cartridge!), Creative Memories Reminisce Accents, Sophisticated, etc.  I cut this shape at 6".


There is a card feature on Sophie - I cut this card at 3" and backed it with pink as an accent color.  Again, I tried black initially but it was too harsh.  Green would have worked also, though.
I added adhesive metal gems to the center outline.   They come in lines of adhesive so the straight parts were easy to do.
I finally added a strip of adhesive and then bunched up satin ribbon along it for a final touch.

Be sure and check out Joy's and Melanie's personal blogs for more creative goodness at Obsessed with Scrapbooking and Courtney Lane Designs!

 Have a great day! This post may contain affiliate links.
