See what I did yesterday!
Thanks to my good friend, Tracy, I have lots of paper with which to choose in making gift bags and cards. That is exactly what I did yesterday.
My Silhouette Portrait got quite a work-out!
I found the Xyron Create-a-Sticker to be useful for adding adhesive to the thin fonts.
I used templates from the Silhouette Store to cut these gift bags.
Instead of scoring the fold lines, it cuts perforated lines; not good. Apparently there is a way to score the lines, so a little research is in order. These are small bags. I really like the papers!
I found a template on Aunt Annie's Crafts blog for using 12-inch scrapbook paper for making a bag. It is really easy, especially with the Martha Stewart Scoring Board.

For larger bags it would be very simple to disassemble a store-bought bag and use for a template.Would be really cool to use hand painted newsprint!
Play time must come to a halt until after Thanksgiving. The studio needs a cleaning and some organization so I will be able to start on Christmas projects as soon as we return from Texas.
