Cartridge Spotlight- Plantin Schoolbook: Gift Bag

Hi everyone and welcome to my very first Cartridge Spotlight Week!  What is this you may ask?  From time to time, I am going to choose one of the over 250 beloved cartridges made for the Cricut machine and make projects with that cartridge.  I will try very hard to only use the weeks cartridge for all the cuts but I may have to venture out from time to time (don't hold it against me!).

So to start off this feature on my blog, I am starting with the Plantin Schoolbook cart.  Most people have this cart and since school will be starting soon, I thought it was the perfect choice.  Here's what I made!

  • Paper - Grade School paper pack by DCWV
  • Various Cardstock
  • Ruler Stamp - Maya Road
  • Ink - Stampin' Up! (red, black and white)
  • Various ribbons, buttons and twine from my stash

As I said before, all the cuts on this bag, including the bag, came from PS.  Most of the gems on this cart are at the endof the book.  I made the tag so that you can pull it out and write a note on the back.  It will slide back in and fit snuggly by the sentiment and the border on the bottom of the bag.

 I used the Roly Poly feature to cut a fatter apple.  I added some ticking with my white pen to the border for a little more flair.  Fill this gift bag with a few pens, pencils and a couple of stacks of post-it notes and send it to school with your child on the first day.  Guess who will be the apple of the teacher's eye then!!

I hope you have enjoyed this project and remember to check back all week for other projects made with this week's Spotlight Cartridge Plantin Schoolbook!
