Window Dressing

Happy Wednesday!
I'm posting my very last project created for 
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

  1. Oh these are just too darn cute! I love the baby one!

  2. Very fun ideas for the window bags! They're all so cute, but that Baby one really makes me smile. :)

  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

A SN@P December Daily

**For the UNITY BLOG HOP, click --HERE--**

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
