Cricut Cirlce Monthly Challenge: Signs of Fall with Texture

I recently have joined the Cricut Cirlce and was dying to also check out one of my newest Cricut Purchases... the Expression 2 5th Anniversary Edition:  I waited in line for this baby at Micheals last week as I purchased it for a steal and it came with 4 Cartridges Preloaded!  (Just a note... they only had 4 of these at each location!) So I decided to participate in the Monthly Challenge on the Cricut Circle Blog... and I created this little 3D Fall Bag which is perfect for holding some cool little treats in!

The Challenge on the blog is to use at least 2 different cricut cuts, create texture and to use items that make you think of Fall!  So here is my Project!

Side View

I created texture with using the Wooden Buttons and Twine at the top, I created layers with different leaves and also added some 3D leaves by cutting the leaves 2 times and folding the top one.  I also inked the Acorn and added some twine!  I also finished it off with a litle glitter around the cricut frame I cut!

Here is a little close up of the bag details so you can see the layering and 3D leaves that I created.  All in all I used 7 different Cricut cuts to create this project!
