FCCB Challenge #200-Pick a Holiday

 Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge!

Challenge #200: Pick a Holiday

This Weeks Sponsor

$10.00 Gift Certificate
To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used.

The challenge this week at FCCB is to pick any Holiday (including Birthdays) and make a project. I saw these cool bags at Michaels the other day (two for $3) and picked up some to decorate. Here is a birthday bag for the man in my life-

Here is what I did:
  1. Accent Essentials-out of mint green cardstock, cut two accent 48 pieces, one for tag and one for decorative base. Doodled edges of tag, stamped (To & From) on inside, hand wrote Happy Birthday on Front. Doodled edges of decorative base.
  2. Nifty Fifties-cut truck (button 41) at 2" out of light blue, black, white, dark green and dark green speckled scrap cardstock. Assemble and adhere to base.
  3. Artise-cut Birthday Boy sentiment (button38) at 1 1/2", adhere to base. Attach base to bag.
  4. Attach tag to bag with 1/8" black Offray ribbon.
What guy wouldn't like a truck for his birthday!


  1. Oh this is really, really cute! I like the color scheme you went with and the images you chose are terrific!
