Quick Gift Bag and Card!

Do you ever find yourself rushed at the last minute to find something to put your gift in - that sort of coordinates with your card? Or are you "one of those people" who plan well in advance of any event and are never rushed? If so, I want to be YOU when I grow up! I have great intentions of planning ahead, and I "think" about it well in advance. It's just getting around to "doing" it that I seem to have trouble with!

All that to say - how stinkin' EASY it is to throw together something at the last minute with a few basic items and our fabulous Cricut Cartridges!

I started off with a plain white kraft bag, covered the front and back with Pear cardstock. Then I added white Cricut circles to the Pear cardstock. Stuffed some bright green tissue paper and tied a green bow on the handle.

The coordinating card is a simple 4x4 card using a conversation bubble from our Cricut Artiste. I added the silver glitter paper frame by adding the conversation bubble to the Cricut Craft Room with an oval in the center. I actually had the card laying around and quickly made the bag to match!

I love how everything coordinated so well! It made my gift look like more than it really was!

Fellow procrastinators of the world UNITE! With Close To My Heart you will never be caught with out coordinating gift bags and cards! :o)


  1. You rock! That bag is super cute!

  2. Fantastic blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m completely overwhelmed .. Any suggestions? Many thanks!
