Cricut Round Bag

This round bag is courtesy of the Plantin Schoolbook Cartridge that came with my Cricut. It is a terrific cartridge and not just because of the good all purpose font. There are a couple of tags, envelopes, some bags and a few basic shapes. Also there is a cool design I'm trying on a Halloween card today. So hopefully I'll have it to show tomorrow.

Here is a view of the cut out design before assembly. It looks daunting but is really easy. There are score marks for folding the tabs in. A little snail adhesive and it was put together in about 5 minutes.

I've never been a big fan of making cute, little bags in papercrafting. The key word here is 'little.' If the item comes out too small, I can't figure out what to use it for. For this bag, I used a 12x12 piece of designer paper from Bo Bunny. It is double sided so the back of the handles and inside look nice but you could use something with a solid white, too. The bag finishes off at 5" not including the handles. It would make a good hostess gift size for candy, fancy soaps, or a few homemade cookies. The Cricut cut the tags out of scraps for me to use when I have a recipient for this. I cut the flower out of a coordinating paper by hand.

I wish I'd had this last Saturday for a birthday party. Oh well, next time I'll be prepared.
