DIY Treat Bags and Tags


Well hello and Happy Tuesday! It’s that time of week – Silhouette’s free shape. It’s original shape is a Mother’s Day card, which is quite lovely and I can see myself making many mini versions in bright colors and tagging them onto pretty packages, but for today, I thought I’d try a different approach: The Silhouette Sketch Pen (in white of course!)

The What

The How

Step 1: Download and open the free shape of the week (mother’s day floral card) in Silhouette Studio

Step 2:  Select and Ungroup the shape a couple of times, then delete the outer shapes leaving only the circular floral shapes. Select and regroup the floral shapes so that they all move as one collective shape

Step 4: Place your treat bag on the cutting mat (tip: line it up using the mat’s grid lines so that the shape will be centered when it’s time to use the sketch pen)

Step 5: You will need to resize your floral shape depending on the size of your bag (use the corner handles to keep the proportions). Place your floral shape using the grid lines (View> Grid lines) to ensure that the sketch pen will be drawing on your treat bag, swap your blade for your sketch pen, set the cut settings so that the Silhouette Sketch Pen is selected, then Send to Silhouette

And you are done! You can use your tags for this too!
