Thankful Tag Challenge ~ Gypsy Chat

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!!!
