Boxes and Bags

Being totally unable to measure accurately, the Silhouette Cameo has transformed my box-making. Here are three boxes/bags I have made recently:
1) (picture above). This box was made to put homemade biscuits in as a gift. It's not a cheap packaging option as I used the best part of 3 12x2 cs and 2 Basic Grey patterned papers!

2) I've used the cutting file for this tote bag before but this time I did it Christmas style and put inside a gift for my niece.

3) This little seed packet is one of three I made for the kids. This Christmas, I have overused this reindeer cutting file which I created  from a digi stamp and this time I used the negative cut into the seed packet and covered it with acetate. Colour-wise I went rustic rather than Christmas.  The packets were filled with oats and glitter that they sprinked outside for Santa's reindeer on Christmas eve.

I'd like to share these with:
Little Red Wagon  Anything Christmas
Just Add Ink  Christmas Project

Maybe not cheap but they are much nicer than shop brought! I love the tote bag, what a cool idea and can be altered for all seasons. The Cameo is a great little tool, lucky you to have one x

Perhaps not an economic option, but they sure are beautiful gift wrappings with a personal touch!
