Today's gift bag is made using the new Cricut Garden Soup cartridge. I love, love, love this bee! Check out the other goodies on this new cartridge:
I needed a gift bag for a "secret sister" swap I was in at the Creative University event I just attended in Idaho. All I knew about her was that she liked yellow, orange and brown and disliked puke green. So, the yellow motif for the bee seemed to be a perfect choice.
The bee was cut at 3". Check out the bee's 3-D wings below. That is a layer on the bee and all you do is adhere the body and the wings lift up.
You can see below the wings from another angle.
Below is a close up of the word art, which was cut at 5-3/4". There is quite a lot of "bee" word art sayings on this cartridge besides this one including "Bee in Your Bonnet", "HapBee Birthday", "Mind Your Own Beeswax" and "Busy Bee". There are 50 fun, layered word art sayings on this cartridge.
The paper used was from the DCWV stack called Lemon Flower. You can find it at Joann's.
The files for Cricut Craft Room and the Gypsy are below. Included in the file is also the bee border, which I ended up not using but I didn't erase it.
