Paper Craft Weekend Challenge- Something New

A while back Allison and Caroline from the Cricut message board started their own challenge blog called Paper Craft Weekend Challenge The weekend starts with a challenge on Friday then another one is issued on Sunday. It's fun, laid back with no time constraints and really no rules! Check it out sometime if you have a chance, you can click on their name above or I have their button on my left sidebar under Favorites.
So, this weekend I was able to get the Sunday challenge done, which was to try something new. Last year I did a project with the Martha Stewart test tubes and some test tube holders that I designed on the Gypsy. This year I found some test tubes  here and since they are much smaller in diameter (I ordered the 16 X 150), I had to come up with a new way to present them. I used two cartridges I haven't used before and, of course, the test tubes. Here's what did:

Both the images are from the Cricut Lite Bump in the Night cartridge. The paper is Recollections and DCWV.  On the first one I used the MS Drippy Goo punch  and the sentiment stamp is from My Craft Spot. The sentiment on the second one is from Scrappy Moms and the tag it's on is from George and Basic Shapes. All ribbon is from Michael's.
To get them to stand up, I used the easel cut from the Fancy Frames Project Cartridge.
I cut it at 51/2" out of heavy kraft paper and glued it to the back. Before I attached it, I cut slits on the front piece to put the ribbon through.
Hope you enjoy my fun, new test tube project. Again, please check out the Paper Craft Weekend Challenge.
Thanks for stopping by!
Here is the post for my other test tube project, if you're interested. Test Tube Holders
