Fantabulous Cricut Challenge #10

This week's challenge at Fantabulous Cricut is to make a 3-D project (bag, box, etc) using black somewhere on the project.

I made this little gift bag for DH's birthday next month, using Tags, Bags, Boxes & More for the bag itself, and Going Places for the motorcycle on the tag. The bag was cut using the "fit to page" option, which ended up being 7". I cut the bag twice - once from white cardstock and once from the Harley patterned vellum. This was the first time I had cut vellum with my Cricut - I just lowered the pressure to medium and the blade depth to 3 and got nice clean cuts. I scored each piece, then adhered them with spray adhesive so glue wouldn't show through the vellum.

For the motorcycle, I used the "square" option on Going Places, cutting it at 3". I removed the square portion, and then applied the motorcycle image to this premade tag. The tag is attached to the bag with bead chain.

Hope you join in the challenge this week - we'd love to see your 3D projects!

This bag looks fabulous! Thanks for the tip about cutting vellum. I've never used my Cricut to cut vellum either.
