For this bouquet..I used the George cart and the new Easter cart!! I used George to cut my flowers, which the purple are cut at 3 1/2 inches and the orange are cut at 3 inches. I used the Easter cut to cut the bunny rabbits at 3 1/2 inches, the chicks are at 4 inches, and the eggs at 3 inches. I also added a couple words to it-Happy Easter is cut at 4 inches and Spring is at 2 1/2 inches. I took some skewers and painted the ones green for stems! You can make a base bouquet of flowers and add different cuts for

different occasions such as add hearts for V-Day

Challenge 24 - 3D

We were challenged to make a 3-D project and I couldn't wait to use my tags, bags, and more cart! I barely ever use it..not sure why...when I can make these cute little purses!! (note to self: don't let my dd see it..LOL..she will be making them non-stop..LOL)...I set my expression to fit to page and for the first time used the bigger size mat..I also used some poster board to make it extra sturdy. I added some dimension to the purse so it wasn't so plain by using my cuttlebug then adding some clear embossing powder to help give it a shine..added in a cut (flower) from storybook..and there is my cute little purse! These would be great for a girl's party don't you think? Mine came out to be 8 1/2 inches when cut.
