saturday workout ~ handcutting

This is my entry into the Saturday's workout challenge which is to use hand cutting!
I had to hand cute the cover as it was too large to put in my guillotine, also I hand cut the little handle at the top with a craft knife and of course I cut around my figures, so this is so well qualified for this challenge!
I hoped to post this last night but unfortunately my computer froze again, it is being such a pain!
Anyway, this is my version of the beautiful gift bag that Camilla sent to me, see the post beneath for hers!
I had some brown paper bags that I wanted to decorate for the teacher's end of year presents so was delighted to not only receive such a fab gift but also the inspiration I needed to make my presents.
I did get Camilla's permission to use her bag as a template before casing it! I also used some of the gorgeous flowers and charms she sent me!

Supplies: Tools ~ Cricut,
Cardstock ~ burgundy, cream, white creative smooth
DP ~ Laura Ashley, Basic Grey 'Dasher' and 'Mellow'
Embellishments ~ assortment from Camilla
