Going Bananas - Monkey Treat Bags

banana Treat Bag 
With a few days away from work I have managed to have a good “play” on my Quickutz Silhouette, which is a much under used tool in my craftroom.
Going Banans
I have a monthly subscription with Quickutz, which  they have recently changed slightly, but for approximately £7.00 a month I can download about 50 templates. Going Bananas
I bought a huge bag of foam bananas and remembered this monkey template that I had downloaded – and thought I would try it on some sweetie bag toppers.
I can’t say it’s the easiest tool to use and I think it helps that I am quite good at using a computer. It took me quite a while to sort out the template, making separate sheets of bodies, faces, noses and eyes in the different colours that I needed to make up the monkeys. But now saved, I will be able to use them over and over again, and it beats cutting everything out by hand!
