Easter Treat Bag

Picture 011
There’s a bit of a story about the template for this box, which I downloaded from a scrapbooking forum;  when I cut it on my Silhouette, it fell to bits, as it cut along the fold lines instead of perforating them.  I was gutted as it was just what I was looking for.

I am very much a novice with the Silhouette, but after several attempts, I worked out how to do the perforations – I am dead chuffed with myself!

I have also saved myself a bit of money, as I was planning on buying a Sizzix Bigz die that makes a very similar bag/box.

I’ve kept it pretty plain, just adding a textured paper strip, stickers from Poundland (from last year, I’m not sure if they have any this year) and a bit of faux stitching, all I need to do now is pop some eggs inside.

Beautiful, I don't think it needs anything else. The clean lines help to focus on the embellishment.

Lovely job, and clever you sorting out your gadget - I'm useless unless it does exactly what it says on the box without any fiddling LOL

Toni :o)
