Drew's Camo Gift Bag

Welcome readers!

Last Saturday, I whipped up a bag for a gift for a young man who just graduated from Marine boot camp. We purchased him a tee shirt, it could have been pretty drab...a tee shirt in a brown sack...but I dressed it up a bit with my Cricut!

I like how the tags look like "dog tags".

I wasn't completely happy with the banner but it worked.  I had to cut it small enough to fit across the 8" bag.  The font in the banner is so thin it tore some paper...but I backed it with black to make the letters pop and repaired what I could.

Creative Memories Total Sports cart Font 2 & banner monogram
CM tag punch
Stampin Up Tag punch
SU Merry everything stamp
GCD Great Outdoors Adventure paper (camo)
American Craft black ink, twine
QQ Midnight Confession powder puff chalk
black card stock
