Birthday Bag


Hello everyone! I am so happy that I got a little time to play with my Imagine. For some reason I just don't ever use it! So I finally got around to using it and here is a gift bag that I made to enter into a couple of challenges.
I printed and cut the bag from Imagine More Cards at fit to page and I flooded filled it with a pattern from the same cart. I also cut another top for the flap on the bag. How did I do that without cutting an entire other bag you ask? Well I lined up approximately where the top would be cut and put a piece of pattern paper there. That way I didn't have to cut the entire bag. The cake and layers were also cut from IMC at 2.3 inches. I pop dotted the top layer of cake. To finish I punched holes in the bag so I could wind some ribbon through and made a tag that I stamped.
I am going to enter this into the following challenges:
My Craft Spots Monday Challenge- Gift Boxes or Bags
Fantabulous Cricut- Piece of Cake, use a cupcake or other baked good.
Getting Cricky Simple Sunday Challenge- Party of favor project
