Hi, everyone! Welcome to Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons and the Cameo Creations Easter Blog Hop. We have lots of fun Easter projects to share with you that we made with our Silhouette Cameos. If you've arrived here from Monica's blog, you're in the right place. If you've just stumbled upon my post and would like to start from the beginning, head over to Monica's blog.
The sponsor for our hop is Scraptastical Kreations...after hopping, just link up your own Silhouette-created Easter project over at Cameo Creations, and you could win a $30 gift certificate to the SK store! Plus, I have a little blog candy of my own to offer you at the end of this post. I decided to create a cute little Easter treat bag for my hop project. Here it is:
I used this adorable bear in a bowl of jellybeans from the Scraptastical Kreations Beary Sweet Easter set and cut it out with my Cameo. The base of the topper came from this 6 label set that I found in the Silhouette Online Store. I created a mirror image of the label and then welded the two shapes together to create the topper for the treat bag. I also used the internal offset feature in Silhouette Studio to create the patterned paper shape that is on the front of the topper.
Here's a close-up of the topper. I used my Peachy Keen Everyday Character Face Assortment and a white gel pen for the eyes and my Peachy Keen Teddy Bear and Reindeer Face Parts set for the nose and mouth. The adorable sentiment came from Pink by Design's Hoppy Easter stamp set. I think the cut file and the stamp are both perfect for this treat bag full of jelly beans. I added lots of ink and some doodles, and my project was all done! I hope you like it!
