Birthday bag with beautiful bow made using the 3D Bows Cricut Craft Room Exclusives

Hello, friends!

Today I am showing you my favorite  of the NEW Cricut Craft Room Exclusive cartridges. It is called 3D bows and sells for $9.99. Since I own this, I may never buy another stick on bow ever again! I cannot praise this one enough! Love love love!!


This is another gift bag for one of my 'K' named nieces. I used the lower case 'k' because I just love the look of the lower case 'k'!
The paper used is from Close To My Heart and is called Roxie.
I cut the bow out at 4".
Using the FREE Cricut Craft Room basics cartridge I cut out the 'k' at 5".
Also using the Cricut Craft Room Basics cartridge I cut this tag out at 2 1/2". I stamped tag using Close To My Heart stamps. (Priceless Love Word Puzzle, a Art Philosophy Exclusive and Christmas Cheer)
 Thank you for stopping by to see me today! Make sure you come back tomorrow because it is Hello Thursday!!

November Specials:

November stamp of the month


Holiday Wishes stamp set that is only $5 with a $25 stamp purchase.

When you place a minimum order of $25 in My Acrylix® stamp set starting today (until November 30th), you can purchase a new D-size Holiday Wishes stamp set for only $5 (Stamp of the Month, K-size customized name stamps, Cricut® Art Philosophy collection, and Workshops on the Go™ kits do not count toward a qualifying purchase.)! That’s significant savings off the full retail value of $17.95 US / $19.95 CAN. And here’s a bonus: many of the images in the set coordinate with our Cricut® Art Philosophy cartridge for added cutting and stamping fun! 

So to break it down, 
-If you spend $50 you get the November stamp of the month (retails price of $17.95) for $5.
-If you spend $25 in stamps, you get the Holidays Wishes stamp set (retail price $17.95) for $5 (Stamp of the Month, K-size customized name stamps, Cricut® Art Philosophy collection, and Workshops on the Go™ kits do not count toward a qualifying purchase.)!
-These two offers can be combined. For example, if you spend $25 in stamps and an additional $25 on anything else in the catalog you will get both stamp sets for a total of $10 ($5 per set). 
You save $25.90! Which means the stamps practically pay for themselves!

*note* You MUST add discounted stamps to shopping cart when prompted by the system during checkout. Stamps cannot be added after the sale is complete and finalized. Also, adding the stamps to your cart BEFORE being prompted by this system will result in being charged full price for promotional stamps. 

Have a WONDERFUL Wednesday!

I need to get this one. I had a question though. What weight of cardstock did you use. I have Paper Trey Ink paper and I am thinking it might be too heavy.

The bag is just amazing! I think I may have to have that 3D Bows. I am loving the free cart Cricut Craftroom Basics. I like that the font is thicker!

Wow! I'm so behind! Some of the previous posts are from November... I love the idea of making bows myself. I can never find what I want at the store and I hate paying for them when I don't fully like them. Great Job!
