Each week there is a Gypsy Challenge on the Gypsy Chat section of the Cricut Message Board. These challenges are designed to get us using some of the features of the Gypsy ~ this is wonderful for Gypsy users of all stages!
This week's challenge is:
Theme ~ Thanksgiving
Tag or Label ~ weld shapes to create
Buttons or brads
Thread or ribbon
The first thing I did was to weld 4 tags together side by side. Once I welded the tags, I sized my project to be 11.5 inches wide.
I scored the tags where I welded them. Then I scored and folded the bottom 1 1/2 inches. This was my first attempt to sew the seams to make pockets ~ it is hard to see in this photo, but the lines were not very straight!
I tried again, but this time made the bottom fold 1". I went back to the Gypsy and made smaller tags to put in the pockets. I sized rectangles from George to 2 1/2" wide 3 1/4" tall. I welded 4 circles to the top.
I inked this flower a little with brown ink. I also inked the tags and pockets. I had white thread in my machine, so I inked it brown so it blended in a bit.
Here is my sewing before I inked it!
I added a button inside the flower. I strung ribbon through the holes.
Here is my tag folder all tied together.
And here it is opened up. I am thankful for my Family, Friends, Health and Paper. Yes, I have an addiction to paper. I spent $25 on paper today after cleaning out my drawer yesterday. Did I mention that my drawer broke under the weight of all my paper?!?
My name is Lori and I am addicted to paper!!!
