Birthday Bag and Tag set for BBTB2
Happy Monday! Today I am sharing my latest Bitten by the Bug 2 project, a Happy 3rd Birthday gift bag and tag set. The challenge cut this week at BBTB2 is the barn from the Old West cartridge. As I do not own Old West I used George & Basic Shapes to build the barn in Cricut Design Studio. I do this occasionally when I do not have the correct cartridge.
The barn was built using a square, a triangle, and several rectangular shapes from George all welded together in Design Studio. The barn doors were build with a square and welded rectangular strips. Bazzill teal cardstock was used to cut the roof and door trim. A rusty brown Bazzill cardstock was used for the barn doors and decorative strip. The barn was cut on a piece of Imagine printed cardstock. I placed white cardstock in the Imagine and from the basic shapes I selected a large square. I edited the shape to fill-in with this great orange print from the Imagine More cartridge. I then cut the barn bottom layer from the orange print.
Using the Cricut Imagine More cartridge I cut this adorable cow in two layers, body and head. I printed her and added her to the edge of the barn using pop dots.
I printed and cut the phrase Moo-mories from the Imagine More cartridge twice. I trimmed away the "-mories" sections and only kept the word Moo. I attached the words to the upper section of the barn.
Again using the Imagine More cartridge, I cut three pieces for the tag above. I selected the colors/patterns and then cut the three shapes. I used the Cricut Expression to cut the "Happy 3rd Birthday" and name phrase from George. The letters were first welded in Design Studio. I used liquid glue dots to affix the letters to the tag.
I made a quick trip to Target and purchased a gift bag in shade of blues to blend with my barn, tag and cow colors. I affixed the the barn and cow layer to the side of the bag and used two of the ribbon streamers to tie the tag to the bag.
I will be back tomorrow with a quick Halloween project to share. Have a good Monday!
