Window Dressing

Happy Wednesday!
I'm posting my very last project created for 
CURTSEY BOUTIQUE
I had a lot fun thinking up different ways to dress up the round windows in 
these bakery bags.  Curtsey Boutique offers an assortment of boxes, baskets & bags!

For the most part I used my nesting circles dies.  
Mainly you will need a 2" punch or die, which is the same size as the window for these particular bags.

 "Baby Face" Bag
From a flesh-colored cardstock, cut a 5" circle.  Center the 2" circle die towards
the bottom of the cardstock and cut


I wanted the window opening to mimic a pacifier so I made the handle from
two different circles of cardstock.  

"Life Preserver" Bag
A cute idea for a party or for sending someone off on a cruise!

After cutting a 3" circle from red cardstock and then cutting out the 2" center,
I added small strips and then trimmed them off.  
I wrapped navy and white baker's twine around each strip
and then tied on a small bow.  A fine-tip glue pen is perfect for adhering twine to paper!

"Pink Bloom" Bag
Perfect for any theme...from a bridal shower to a Bunco party!
Just use the same 2" circle for the center and any large scalloped punch or die for the flower.
I also attach a glittered butterfly, which you can find at Curtsey Boutique.
 A full pdf instruction sheet is available on the blog

  3. These are such a great idea, think i'm going to do this for the Halloween terat bags. Your wee baby face one is absolutely adorable... I just need to find some new babies to make them for, as broody as I am Im not allowed because of health issues, by order of the hubby and doctor - I think they conspired together lol. Oh well 4 is enough even if they aren't exactly babies anymore :( I'll just have to 'borrow' friends babies instead haha. Thanks for the inspiration sweetie. Hugs xNx
