Exploring Cricut-Daily Project

Hello My Crafty Friends! Hope y'all are all well on this fine Saturday!! It just so happens to be my day to bring ya the Daily Project over at Exploring Cricut. Hope you have had the chance to check out all of the daily projects. Also, don't forget our challenge ends tonight at 9pm EST. So hurry and get your project linked.
For my project today I have a gift bag and a candle holder. If you missed my challenge project, just go      and check it out. I made the gift bag to match. I took a blue bag that I got at Hobby Lobby, covered the front in the striped paper (open stock-Hobby Lobby-last year). I then cut the fireworks from the Stand and Salute cartridge at 3.5 inches. I coated them with Waterfall Stickles. The tag is a premade that I got at Hobby Lobby. I covered it in the same paper and put the 'C' on it. It is the left over from the candle. The sentiment is from the Happy Days stamp set from Mary-Cardz TV Stamps. I added some Denim and Marashino Twine from The Twinery for the tie at the top. For my candle holder, I cut the 'C' from the Cricut Alpabet cartridge at 2.5 inches using vinyl. I placed the negative onto the candle holder and then coated the inside of the letter with Etching Cream. I coated it really well. It says to leave it on for 5 minutes, but I left it on a little over 10. I think it came out pretty good. I'm pleased with it anyways.
Now don't forget to enter our challenge! Hope y'all like my bag and candle holder!!!! :)

Very cute gift bag. I like the etching on the votive holder. I too leave the etching cream on much longer than they recommend as with my experience it doesn't work too well when you don't! I like the C you used - very elegant!
