My bestie’s surprise birthday was this weekend and I wanted to make sure that even though my gift was small that it packed some punch on delivery!
First, I grabbed my old packet of Flirty paper that I have been hording – YES, I horde paper. If there’s a paper I really like I just don’t want to cut it…crazy huh? Then I put my Cricut to work using both the Art Philosophy and Artiste cartridges. I love making the rolled flowers, but don’t use them much because they get squished when you mail them, but I think it made the perfect accent on the purse closure. I attached the tag (which was almost as big as the purse) with a small piece of bakers twine.
The funny thing is I forgot to take a picture of the entire thing until we were on our way to the party so I used the console in my husband’s truck as a background…it’s really hard to take pictures when you’re driving down the road, LOL!
