Baby Shower Favor Bags

Using the Cricut and Design Studio software, I cut out the purse shape, by making a 4.5 inch circle, then cutting a rectangle shape off the bottom of the circle to make the purse bottom flat and a little oval for the handle area.  Then I used the Boys Will Be Boys cartridge to cut the dump truck and monster truck shapes.  The area between the front and the back of the purse is a small white paper bag cut to just under the handle opening and sticky taped in place.  These will be filled with those melt-in-your-mouth mints.  Each favor bag will have one dump truck on one side with It's a Boy....and one monster truck with Thank You on the other side.  I'm giving my DIL a baby shower on April 23rd.  And I am making the favor bags for the shower.  CLICK ON PHOTO TO ENLARGE

They remind me of the Suite's Rally project. I used precut purse shapes from Oriental Trading for gift card holders. Nice job changing up the 'feminine' to the 'masculine'.
