Sweet Birdie Gift Bag

Our Challenge for March 1-14 at Frosted Designs is Chevrons.

I dusted off my Cricut Imagine and my Lori's Garden cartridge to create a decorated gift bag.

I printed a chevron page with pinks and oranges.  I first tried to print an 8x10 rectangle, but it was going to print the rectangle horizontally, and I wanted to use it vertically.  My solution was to print the entire page.

My paper went from white to chevron - super cool!

I printed and cut this bird image at 8 inches.  The small bird was printed and cut at 2 inches.  The butterflies are for another project.

Here are my cuts!

I needed something to mat my bird.  I grabbed Gypsy girl and cut out a scalloped oval from Lacy Labels and sized to 8.35 inches.

The tag is also from Lacy Labels and is sized to 3 inches.

Both were cut out of cream colored cardstock.

I added a kraft brown gift bag purchased in bulk at Michaels and got out my glue and ink! 

I used inked the pieces with Vintage Photo ink from Tim Holtz.

I used a strip of paper on the tag to coordinate. 

I adhered the bird and swing on the oval, and the oval on the chevron paper.

I have a darling gift bag and matching tag set!

Be sure to join us at Frosted Designs and link up your Chevron project!!
