Cricut Good Old Days Easy Birthday Bags

Here are some quick and easy party bags made with the Cricut Imagine Good Old Days cartridge and the Imagine machine.  All I did was lay out two images (the Happy Birthday and the cake) and print them onto bags that I ran through the Imagine. Sadly, I didn't center them as well as I could have (whoops!).

Take a look at this fun Good Old Days cartridge:


It would be fun to put your birthday treat bag candies and what not into these bags.  FYI, the bags came from Michaels and they are lunch bag sized.


Don't forget I am giving away a set of My Creative Time's newest stamp set release!  Head over HERE to enter to win!

  17. Very cute, and I love the idea of using my I on other things. I just can't figure how you get bags to stick to the mat, and how to place the images. Any further info or instruction would be greatly appreciated! I love your videos, and we could all benefit from one explaining this technique! Thanks Joy. BethAnn M.

  19. Very cute gift bag, and so easy to make, too. I made Christmas treat bags using my Imagine, after seeing Melanie's post showing this technique on Everyday Cricut. The bags were a huge hit with the kids AND the adults. Can't wait to try more ideas.
