So---How DID I Do That and Winner Announced!!

Welcome to Funky Cards

Last week I challenged you to a game of how did she do that?  I asked you to try and guess what two Cricut cartridges I used to make the Michael's bag in this "Having fun with Mom" canvas.

The purpose of this game wasn't to just give a way a treat, but to get you to see that there are many interesting and creative ways to use our Cricut cuts in ways that they are not intended.  I wanted to make what looked like a Michael's shopping bag.  Well a quick search of  told me that that wasn't going to happen with the cartridges I owned without being creative.

I knew that I needed two pieces, a base and a handle.  The base is actually from a purse on the Forever Young Cricut Cartridge.  It is not used as intended.  It was meant to be the side of a 3-D purse (Page 41, shift Purse).

I knew immediately what I wanted to use for the shape of the handle.  Look at it one more time before peeking and see if you can guess what I used!!!!  Did you guess right?

Well you did if you now know that the handle was cut from the Kate's ABC's Cricut cartridge (Page 42, Layer 1, first cut only).  

I love to look at my cartridges and imagine how I can use them for many different things.  The shoes straps just looked like perfect bag handles to me!!

Nobody correctly guessed the two Cricut cartridges I used, but Random Organizer felt generous and picked two winners to receive a little treat in the mail.

 1.  Sherry said, "I'd think its between Everyday Paper Dolls or the Forever Young Cartridge and then you wrote Michael's on it."

2. Denise said, "Love this project! I am guessing Every day Paper Dolls and Sweet Treats cartridges."
