So Proud


Our new challenge over at Cut It Up is So Proud of You!  I decided to show my pride in my sister with this gift bag in a Victorian style!  She's a Middle School Science teacher; I don't know anyone more dedicated to students and education!  She is one in a million!

Check out the video below for all the info and a tutorial on how I made this bag!

Material List:

Heavy Brown Cardstock from Stash
Satin Flower from Stash
Adhesives: Fabri-Tac
Cricut Design Space: Designed, Printed and Cut from CDS
Cricut Standard Mat
Cricut Blade
Cricut Maker

This bag is off to the following challenges:  
If You Give a Crafter a Cookie:  Pic Inspired school/books
CD Sunday Plus:  AG using a CD, USB, or Digital (Digital Paper)
The Outlawz Sunday Song and Rhyme:  Inspired by the lines "books and pens," "We will rest upon the ground" and the general idea of children in school
Beyond the Blue:  Retro Tool or Embellishment (Satin Bow is retro!  Been in my stash forever!)
