Hello! Today I have another birthday project from one of my favorite Close To
My Heart Cricut cartridges, Artiste! This cartridge has fantastic images and 3D projects that are so easy to cut and assemble.
I chose one of the adorable little purse bags to make for the girls treat bags. This is another 3D project that requires no scoring and no adhesive!
The Artiste handbook tells you exactly how big to cut it for best results. You can go a little larger if it will fit on your mat, but I would not cut it any smaller. Simply fold along the score lines that are very obscure and use a bone folder to get good creases, on each fold. I also cut the the tag for the purse using the shift key of the 3D feature. My Gypsy comes in handy to be able to maximize my mat and get as many cuts as possible on one pass of the mat.
Now you are ready to assemble! If you want to stamp or do any embossing this is the time to get it done before you assemble.
Two simple folds and this adorable little purse is ready for its treats!
I decided to use the Birthday Girl cut on the same fantabulous Artiste cartridge and used my Gypsy to size it so that it fit on my tag.
I cut two of these as I plan to use one for a scrapbook page.
The cuts come out perfectly even on my very worn out mat. This is just one of the reasons I adore the Artise cartridge.
The birthday girls treat bag!
One little boy at this party needed a very special treat box. You can see the post about this here.
