Bunny Valentine Gift/Treat Bag

Hi Crafters!  I made another gift/treat bag today that I want to share with you.  I LOVE using treat bags during the holidays for giving candy and treats.

I used my Silhouette Cameo and cut the adorable bunny from Scrapping Bug Designs "will you be mine" files.  I didn't put eyelashes on the bunny at first.  I was too scared!!  I used to do eyelashes on bears a long time ago.  I need practice.  In the last photo the bunny has eyelashes.  I went a bit overboard with eyelashes (ok a lot overboard).  I promise to practice and get better.  Isn't it funny how you can spend so much time putting together these paper pieces to only screw it up at the very end!!  That is why I took pictures before doing the eyelashes.

I cut the heart border using a free file from Birds Cards Designs.  I LOVE this website for free cutting files.   The sentiment if from My Creative Time 100% Sweetness stamp set.

Thanks so much for stopping by and happy crafting!!!

Be Mine Treat Bag

Hi Everyone!  I have another Valentine treat bag for you.   This bag is a cutting file from the Silhouette store.  Click Here to purchase the file.  I wanted another simple project so I cut the file out of white cardstock.  I cut the inner shadow piece from red cardstock.  I LOVE how this turned out!!

This bag has an attached tag.  I used My Creative Time Teeny Tag Greeting for the tag, but you could easily find a tag from the Silhouette store.  The bag, heart border, and the hearts on the bottom of the bag were all cut using my cameo.

I cut the hearts from plain red cardstock and used a Stampin Up dotted background stamp with VersaMark ink pad to get the dots.  This is my favorite technique to achieve the look of patterned paper.  The ribbon was purchased from Michael's years ago.
This bag is WITHOUT the tag..  Just wanted to show you how it looks without the sentiment tag.
I am entering this treat bag into the Really Reasonable Ribbon challenge!!

Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting!!

Valentine's Day Gift Bag using Silhouette Cameo

Hi Everyone!  This gift bag is sooo super easy and I used my new Silhouette Cameo for this project.  I am loving the cameo!!

For this project, I used a red gift bag, white cardstock, a glue pen, and my CAMEO!!  Besides my computer and printer that is all the supplies I used.  Now how easy it that??  You can choose not to use the printer and use a stamp or your own hand writing for the Happy Valentine's Day sentiment!!  I chose to use the Silhouette Cameo print and cut feature for the sentiment.

This machine is amazing!  Look at the crisp clean cuts it makes!!

One of my FAVORITE websites is Birds Cards for free cutting files and digi stamps.  I used the heart doily and the heart border file which you can download FREE from HERE .  This is a FABULOUS website!!

Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting!!
