I'm excited to be sharing with you all my first Epiphany Crafts Design Team project with you all!
We were to create "Easter Treats" using Epiphany goodness.
So.... of course, I had to pull out my Sizzix Eclips and make some treat bags.
So cute, right? I love the kraft with a bit of color kinda look. So simple and modern. :) I love Miss Tiina graphics, too!
I used the EC Flower 20 Button in the middle of the pinwheel - it adds so much than just a regular button! and I was able to match the look with the rest of the project! The little flower button by the pennant "e" is also EC epoxy as well!
Here, I used the EC Shape Round 14 to make the inside part of the flower 'pop'!
I love these EC tools because I can just center the tool to exactly where I want it to be to make my epoxy sticker/button. Here, I centered the flower right in the middle to make the cutest embellishment! I even got to use my washi tape to seal the top of this treat bag!
To make these cute little packaging, you will need:
Epiphany Crafts Shape Studio Tool Round 14
Epiphany Crafts Button Studio Tool Flower 20
Wooden Dowel (for pinwheel base)
Scoring Board (yes, having scoring board makes a HUGE difference. It can make anything look 'homemade' to 'professional')
Betty's Bags and Boxes SVG Kit (shopping_bag_tall.svg and altered with various openings)
Zipper SVG (SugarGem) (You may also use an alternative method to achieve similar results - explained below)
Easter Beans Kit (Miss Tiina) Instead of using computer clip arts, you can also substitute by using stickers/rub-ons/chipboard accents)
So, to make these bags, open up the shopping_bag_short.svg file (8.30" wide) and you can either break them apart to delete the holes that are at the top of the bag to replace with the zipper file, or even add in a shape 'window'. The windows that I used are from:.. well, hmm... I didn't seem to note that! lol... but you can use any shape inside! After cutting, score all the areas to be folded including the little score mark at the top of the bag where the bag opening closes together. The open shaped areas were sealed with a clear acetate from inside.
After these are cut out - I scored them:
So, my fave one outta these is the 'zipper' one. I thought it was the coolest thing, and I had fallen in love with this idea when I first saw it on the Papertrey Ink die selection... Then, one of my blog friends who sell the coolest SVGs that she's made, created zipper SVGs! Pretty clever! I had to use them! So what I did was instead of having the circles to allow ribbon to go through, I deleted that, and replaced it with this zipper file. Here's what it looked like:
...and when you fully unzip it, it opens up like this!
For those of you that does not have the cutting machine but wants to create this similar effect - you can do it on your rotary cutter if you have a perforation blade! I tried it and it works!
The pinwheel is simply made from a square piece of paper with a diagonal slit going down from all the corners. Then each of the corners were glued to the middle. I wrapped washi tape around the wooden dowel, too!
Inside the bags, I filled them with jelly beans and Easter M&Ms. It's really cute to color coordinate your candies to your project - it helps to bring out the 'wow' factor in your projects :)
Anyway, that's it! Hope you liked it - thanks for stopping by!
