Come On, Cut It Out!


Hi everyone!  This week the Top Tip Tuesday Challenge is hosted by Lisa, and she wants you to CUT IT OUT.  As you can see, our fab sponsor is Shape EZ and we all used their wonderful cut files as the base of our creations.  

Before I get to my project, I want you to know, Samantha is extending the DT call another fortnight.  Here are the details on applying and what the requirements are.  If you love coloring and creating, this is a great place to play.

On to my project...
Shape EZ DIY Rolled Bag
I used the very versatile rolled bag. I tell ya, I started cutting these and couldn't stop.   Five bags later and I have pre-made packaging for upcoming birthday treats.  My tip for this week is that you can use these files even if you don't have a cutting machine, just import the image to a word processing program, print the PDF on the wrong side of your paper and cut it out with scissors.  I love that you can change things up and size it to fit your need.  Deneen has some great tips for "Cutting It Out" on the blog.

Thanks for stopping by.  If you haven't come from the TTT, head on over there now for the full scoop on entering for a chance to win.  The inspiration from the DT is stellar as usual.  

Don't forget to post your tips for a chance at a guest designer spot.  Can't wait to see what you create.  Also, don't be shy now,  drop your name in the hat for the design team spots, TTT is a really great bunch to work with!

Have a blessed week.

  1. A great little gift bag and fabulous papers too.

  2. I enjoyed using the bag template too - easy to cut out by hand...even the wave shape would have been fine except that I wanted to push the top edges together and it didn't line up it had to be removed - lol!
    I love your cute cowboy themed bag and what a fab idea to use them as birthday treat bags!
    Big hugs, Kat xx
