BBTB - Nut Cup Challenge

Our challenge this week over at Bitten By The Bug was to use the nut cup on the Tags, Bags, Boxes, and More cartridge. Be sure to check out all of the design team creations!


I was inspired by a lyric in the Let It Snow! song. One of the lines is, "And I've bought some corn for popping". So, I decided to fill my nut cup with popcorn! I guess that makes it a popcorn cup! Anyway, I used DCWV patterned cardstock. The foam snowflake is attached with a red rhinestone Making Memories brad. I printed the lyrics for the song on cardstock, and I attached them to the popcorn bag with holiday ribbon. Click on the image to see it larger! This is my last BBTB project. I am leaving the team. I originally joined the team so that I would use my Cricut more. However, most of the challenges used cartridges that I do not own, so I was getting a lot of my cuts from DeeDee. I wanted to use MY Cricut, not give DeeDee's Cricut a workout! So, I decided to leave the team. I want to thank Regina! I really enjoyed working with the BBTB team! I'll miss you all!

So, it was a BUSY weekend, and it's going to be a busy week! The girls have a lot of school and band activities, and we still have some Halloween preparation to take care of this week. I hope you all had a great weekend, and thanks for stopping by!

I love your little treat bag. :) I really need to get started on christmas stuff but I get so caught up in Halloween stuff that I hate to rush it... :) Sooo sad to see you leave the BBTB team, I always go check out the design ideas. But maybe you'll get more actual use out of YOUR cricut! haha.. do you have the expressions or the smaller one? I got the smaller one but I only have like 3 carts so I'm hoping to get some for Christmas! haha :)
