Now, after we are done will all formalities, take a look at my project. I have a soft spot for small cute boxes, containers, bags, ... you got the idea. When I saw this adorable Samantha Walker Bag Carton Box I knew I have to make it. With snow in my backyard and winter on my mind, I decided to add a little sparkle to the bags by adding glittery snowflakes. The bags are 3" x 4.5" - perfect size to be filled with few yummy treats and shared with friends.
I plan to fill mine with small chocolates and take them with me to the crop on Friday to share with my crop buddies.
Let me show you how I made them.
I cut out the Bag Carton Box from a 12x12 sheet of kraft cardstock. I folded and creased all folds at perforated lines. The diagonal folds should be in the opposite direction that all other folds. These are the sides of the bag.
Next I opened the snowflake cut file and 12 piece tag set in the Silhouette Studio and deleted everything except one snowflake and one label. I also deleted the ribbon slots from the label since I didn't plan to use them. I resized the snowflake to be 2.845" wide and the label to be 2.5" wide and cut them out from the double-sided adhesive sheet. I removed the yellow liner and adhered the snowflake and the label to the outside of the box. (Pick-Me-Up tool comes in handy for poking out all stubborn tiny pieces of the snowflake)
I removed the white liner and added Silhouette Glitter. After brushing off the extra glitter I added a piece of adhesive tape to the side flap of the box and assembled the box.
To make the lace label, I used the inner oval of the label shape. I peeled of the yellow liner and covered one side of the adhesive sheet with lace. I carefully trimmed around the edges, peeled the white liner and added the oval to the bag.
Filled with chocolates and ready to be shared.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you were inspired to try these or any other beautiful cut files from Samantha Walker Silhouette Store.
