How to Make A Cowboy Birthday Gift Bag!

This cute Western Cowboy gift bag came together in a jiffy with the Cricut Teddy Bear Parade and County Fair cartridges at hand.  
My mom needed a bag for a baby gift of overalls with horseshoes on them so we went with the whole cowboy motif.  You can get a big package of gift bags at Michaels or Joanns with a coupon for under $5.  These are sized at 8" x 10" approximately.
Here are the sizes:

County Fair Cricut Cartridge - cactus - 6"
Teddy Bear Parade Cricut Cartridge- Lil Cowpoke - 3"
Teddy Bear Parade Cricut Cartridge- Cowboy Teddy Bear - 4-3/4"
Cricut Plantin Schoolbook - Stars - 1-1/2"

A little white pen adds the perfect amount of detail to the bear, stars and "lil cowpoke" and takes two seconds to do.  I use the white Sanford Uni-Ball Gel Impact Pen .

Do you ever make gift bags?

  5. This has to be the cutest bag I have seen yet. Joy, I doubt this could have been done in a jiffy. You must be a wizard on the Cricut to make anything quickly. LOL!
