DIY Treat Bags - Maritza Lisa

It’s a great time of month for a Silhouette deal (and project), yes? Yes! So happy you agree… This month’s promotion is so good – sigh. The details of these awesome deals are below the project. You will be directed to the Promotions page – use MARITZA as the promo code at checkout. Not only do you get the Silhouette CAMEO and Silhouette Portrait bundles for a reduced price, but you can also get the Silhouette Studio Designer Edition at 40% off! Which leads me to today’s project. I LOVE my  Silhouette Studio Designer Edition software – there are so many features that make me happy, but the one I will highlight today is the knife tool set. I took the treat bags from this post, and updated the edges using the wave cut.

The What

The How

Step 1: In Silhouette Studio, open the treat bag download file from this post. Click on the knife tool, and select the Wave knife, select Solid and clear the Auto Apply checkbox. Drag the knife tool along the top edge of the shape. A few things to note (refer to the FAQ on the knife set tools for more information):

  • the red dot handles the height of the waves
  • the white dots handle the size of the cut
  • the slider in the middle adjusts the frequency of the waves

Step 2: Once you’ve made your adjustments, create a copy for the bottom edge and click Apply Selected Knife

Step 3: Delete the extra bits, and send to to cut using copy paper settings (for your patterned paper)

Step 4: Fold and glue, and now your treat bag will have a new sashay with its new ‘do

    I am trying to order the Designer Software. Your discount code does not work. It says it is invalid.

      Hi Susan – So happy that you are planning to get the designer edition – try MARITZA again, please. If you’re having trouble again, please let me know, as I know it has worked for this promotion

        I just bought my Cameo and it arrived yesterday so I am very excited! I just tried to buy the Designer software again. It still says it is an invalid Promo Code.
