Tags, Bags, and Boxes Challenge

Welcome to another challenge for Exploring Cricut.  This week's challenge is to create a tag, bag, or box with any theme and at least 1 ribbon.

For my project this week I'm recreating a project I saw on Facebook.  I thought these were so cute when I saw them that I knew I had to try them.  I ended up making a couple of them to give to a couple friends for Valentine's Day (even though they really don't look like they're for Valentine's Day).

Cricut Cuts:
Easter 2010:  pillow box @5.71.  I also used my Gypsy to hide the bunny cut-out.
George:  circle @1.71 and .76; oval @1.35 and 2.04; heart @ 1.47.

Cardstock:  White Daisy, Lagoon, black
Pattern Paper: Dotty for You
Ribbon: from stash

daily project for February 6

Welcome to my daily project for Exploring Cricut!  Hope everyone is staying warm.  Here in the ville we've had more snow than we've had the last 5 years combined I think.  I'm a self proclaimed snow lover, but even I've had enough.  My project for today is a card I'm using for my next card class, it's after Valentine's Day but who says you need a special occasion to tell someone how you feel.
I used cardstock and Ivy Lane paper from Close to my Heart and the flowers are also from the Ivy Lane collection from CTMH.

Cricut Cuts:
George and Basic Shapes:  Octagon @1.5"
Art Philosophy: title @ 1"

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget a new challenge starts on Monday!
