Shopping Bag - Tags Bags Boxes and More Series #1

I like to use the Fit to Page feature to cut the bags and boxes out of Tags Bags Boxes and More, but I hate measuring the sides every time so that I can cover it with my stamped image or Designer Paper. So how about a Tags Bags Boxes and More Series showing the layers made on Design Studio.

When I use the 12x12 mat and the Fit to Page feature I selected the shopping bag on page 114 , the Cricut will cut the bag to 5 3/4 inches. Once it is cut I score the edges that will need to be folded and then distress all the edges and folds. I then cut the layers I made on white card stock and stamped my images.



Here is what the shopping bag looks like - distressed edges with stamped and inked layers glued down. I use score tape to put the bag together.


Here is the front of the shopping bag. I added a stamped and punched "Just for you" on a paper clip and a piece of black ribbon ties through the oval.





Here is the back and side of the finished shopping bag.

Now how about using Designer Paper to cover the shopping bag with the black out feature selected.



This is what the 12x12 piece of designer paper looks like. I cut the top down so that I could get the branches and the leaves with a little of the blue sky at the top.





This is what my shopping bag looks like with everything distress, inked and glued to the shopping bag.





Here is what the front side of shopping bag looks like all put together.





Here is the back. I'm not sure what I'm using this one for so I have added a sentiment to it.


Click here for the cut file. The file has all three of the shopping bags - the oval, the circle and the solid fronts.
