[Video] Artbooking Make an Elegant Gift Bag!

The Close to My Heart Artbooking Cricut cartridge is extremely versatile.  Today's gift bag was made using just two cuts from this new cartridge.  The project went together in a snap!

Let's take a look at how to make this elegant gift bag:
I cut the elegant overlay shown above at 9-1/2" using the real dial size button.  My gift bag is about 8"x10" so this was the closest appropriate size.

Again, the real dial size button is our friend!  Here is where to find the real dial size button on the cartridge overlay:
And here it is on the Cricut Craft Room:
Next, I cut the elegant "Celebrate" at 1-1/4" using the real dial size button.  Two cuts - one quick bag!

  17. I'm loving all the things you can do with the Artbooking cartridge. In the video you asked for ideas on gluing pieces down - have you tried Xyron? They make one that is 6 inches wide - you didn't mention the width of your overlay, but if it would fit it would be a great way to adhere it. I make cards regularly and scrapbook in spurts, so I'd say more cards! Thanks.
