Okay, now on to my gift bag!  I chose paper and cardstock from the Robin's Nest and DCWV, and  an awesome cutting file from SVG Cuts, to make this bag.  (and have I mentioned in the last 5 minutes how much I HEART my Silhouette Cameo?!)  The bag is actually pretty huge!  It took 4 full pieces of 12 x 12 cardstock, and I love it because most homemade gift bags only use 1 - 2 sheets, and they come out really small.  This one will hold larger gifts!


Here's a view from the side...


And to give you an idea of how big this bag really is, it could hold a Crop-A-Dile II with room to spare!!





Thank you SO MUCH for stopping by, and if you're interested in great tips and money-saving tricks, I invite you to become a follower of the blog or any of the social media links listed near the top of the sidebar.

Your next stop on our hop is the fabulous Lucy!  I bet you're going to love what she created!
