Cuttin' Up! - Acrylic

I wanted to make a little purse to hold chocolates with the acetate.  I wasn't quite sure if it would work, as I have never cut acetate with the Cricut before.  All I can say is WOW!  I loved it!

I used the Tags, Bags, Boxes & More cartridge and set the size to 4 3/4".  I had the cutting blade set at 6 and used the muti-cut option to have it go over it twice.  It was wonderful.  The purse popped right out with no problems.  This handy dandy little cartridge is on the retired list, so be sure to grab one while you can!!! It's one of my favorites :)
I then ran the flap of the purse though the Cuttlebug with the Daisy Flower folder.  To highlight the little flowers I used Painters markers by Elmer's, then added little plastic beads for the handle and a paper flower to top it off.  Add the yummy chocolates morsels and we are off for girls' night out!

I love this! It's sooo cute. Where do you get your acetate from? I never knew you could cuttlebug acetate! Awesome!

I would love to know too where you get your acetate from? Which purse is it on the tags and bags cart?

Hi Wanda me again. Could you send me an email with instructions on how to make this purse card and the lampshades you made out of vellum for a wedding challenge?

I was to make these if it is ok with you. I just started paper crafting this year in feb/march, so I need all the inspiration can get.

Thank you and I am now a follower too

I won on cuttlebug challenge with my granddaughter Caitlin (24hr Christmas Challenge)linked to your blog from there. Caitlin wants me to help her make one or two for her room and maybe a friend too.
