DIY Beach Themed Tags and Treat Bags - Maritza Lisa

The weather is warming up, and I dream of smelling the salty beach. Since I can’t get to the beach any time soon, I thought pretty beach themed tags and treat bags would do for now. Sidebar, yet somehow related: I saw this great little tip from Silhouette School on how to reveal the cutting mat in Silhouette Studio. This is awesome if you use smaller pieces of cardstock or paper with the sketch pens. Want to see how I used this tip to create these “sketched” beachy images on my tags and treat bags?


The What

The How

  1. Open your beach themed images in Silhouette Studio
  2. Trace your images
  3. Resize your images so that they can fit on your treat bags
  4. Now for the mat reveal tip… In the Design Page Settings Window, you will find the Reveal Mat slider near the bottom of the window. Slide it closer to 100% to reveal the mat!
  5. Place your Treat bag or tag on the mat, note the position. Then, place your traced image in the same spot now that you can see your mat
  6. Load your pen holder and pen, and send to cut using Sketch Pen settings (speed: 1; thickness 27)
