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

Beautiful Birthday Shaker Card

Hello and welcome to my contribution to the  SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES and HERO ARTS BLOG HOP

For my project, I have chosen to make this cute shaker birthday card!

Before we get started on the detail, here is a list of supplies that I've used: From Scrapbook Adhesives: Keepsakes Envelope Mix (I used 4" X 3.5") Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4 in, Dual Tip Glue Pen, Crafty Foam Tape Black and the E-Z Runner Grand Refillable Dispenser with E-Z Runner Grand Permanent Dots Refill.  From Hero Arts: Dress Up Stamp and Cut and Kelly's Flags Stamp & Cut
To begin, I added a few star sequins directly to the sticky part of the Keepsake Envelope.
Next I sprinkled some round sequins inside of the pocket.
I used the Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4" to close up the pocket.
I cut a piece of patterned paper the same size as the pocket and mounted it to the sticky back of the pocket.  
After die-cutting the dress bottom from patterned paper, it was pleated along the score lines and then…
