Cooking with Cricut Challenge #83 - Bling it On!!

Hello everyone, hope you're having a creative week! Here is another challenge from all of us over at COOKING WITH CRICUT !  This week is all about things blingy! :-)  They say that diamonds are a girls best friend so we created projects with bling on them to inspire you!

I decided to pull out my Art Philosophy cartridge from CLOSE TO MY HEART and it never disappoints! If you would like to know more about the bundle that has the Art Philosophy cartridge in it, CLICK HERE!


I started with the bag on page 23 of the cartridge handbook and cut it at 6.41".  The filigree frame cut is on page 67 and was cut at 2.88". Lastly, the "J" was cut at 1.94". 


Here are a couple of close-ups. I tried to show off my glittery paper but it is really hard to show on camera! 





Now to the really fun part - add the bling! I added as much as I possibly could without going overboard! Haha! I don't know...... maybe I already did! :-) 

As a finishing touch, I tied some ribbon through the handles to complete the look!

Thanks for stopping by today and be sure to head over to COOKING WITH CRICUT to play along in our bling challenge and link up your own creation for a chance to win a prize!
