I love the Sports Mania Cricut Cartridge since it has such cool, graphic designs on it for all kinds of sports. I was trying to think of a masculine gift bag I could make and wondered if I could find some good images on this cartridge. Well, let me tell you - there are TONS! Take a look below:
This is a full cartridge, complete with borders, backgrounds and lots of layers. To see the entire handbook, head over HERE.
I love making my own gift bags, as you may have noticed. They are really easy and quick and can be tailored to the person you are making them for. Also, it's much less expensive! For this bag, I needed the bag itself, four colors of cardstock (all colors I am sure you have - red, white, blue and brown), a red and white striped ribbon, a smaller ribbon to hold the tag, and a white gel pen.
Below is a close-up of the word art. I cut a white ball and backed it with red to go in the center. Otherwise it would all be one color (blue) which is not what I wanted.
This bag was plain Jane until I added the white Signo Uniball pen stitching!
