Easter Candy Bags – Silhouette Giveaway & Promotion!

I absolutely love designer Lori Whitlock’s cut file designs for the Silhouette machine. The series of candy boxes that I am showing you today on  here and on Scrapbook Update are beautiful examples of why I have a Silhouette library that is bursting full of her designs. (And be sure to read to the end to hear about the latest Silhouette giveaway and promotion!)

Easter Bags and Boxes CCAll of these are surprisingly simple and can be assembled with just this limited supply of tools (and some of these are really optional). The bone folder is great for creasing the folds of the containers and also for reaching inside to press down the glued seams, especially in areas where fingers won’t reach!

Easter Project ToolsA strong adhesive – and plenty of it – is a must, especially if you plan to put heavy items in your container!

Banner Flap Candy Bags

These two bags are identical except for the paper used for them. On the left is a paper by Lori Whitlock from the Sweet Girl collection, and on the right is a paper from the Pretty Pinwheels collection (both collections are from Echo Park).

Easter Bags CCSupplies: Silhouette Cutting File (3d box ribbon tie pennant flapbox by Lori Whitlock), Echo Park Splendid Sunshine paper (Pretty Pinwheels), Echo Park Sweet Girl paper by Lori Whitlock (Quilt Blocks), Silhouette Print & Cut File (watercolor happy easter title by Jennifer Wambach), Silhouette Printable Clear Sticker Paper, Ribbon.

The cut file had to be rotated and resized just a teeny bit to cut on the Portrait but it is still plenty big to hold lots of candy! It’s so simple to assemble – no instructions needed – with a bit of adhesive and a few folds.

The Happy Easter logo is a Silhouette Print & Cut file by Jennifer Wambach that has been printed on Silhouette’s Printable Clear Sticker media, and then cut with my Silhouette Portrait. The process is way easier than I imagined before trying it. If you’ve never done it before, check out the video:

The logo is translucent when printed on the clear media, so you have to be careful what you put it on. The watercolor look is beautiful – and there are matching flowers available too!

Candy Slider Boxes

This cut file was designed to hold Hershey’s Nuggets but as you can see it also perfectly holds five mini Reese’s Cups! Two letter sized sheets, one for the drawer and one for the wrapper, will cut TWO of these boxes if you duplicate the cuts and move the layout around in the cutting window.

Easter Boxes CCSupplies: Silhouette Cutting File (Hershey’s Nuggets Candy Box by Lori Whitlock), Bazzill Smooth Cardstock (White), Carta Bella So Noted paper (Silhouettes), Silhouette Print & Cut File (Chicken Dumpling Soup Labels by Jillibean Soup), Lawn Fawn Lawn Trimmings (Pink Lemonade), Doodlebug Doodle Twine (Bright Assortment), Close To My Heart Ink (Crystal Blue), Lawn Fawn stamps (Love n’ Breakfast).

The drawer on this is designed as a tight fit – necessary to keep it from falling open – so the paper weight makes a big difference in its assembly and function. A lighter weight paper is best for the drawer, and going too heavy on the wrapper paper will also make it too tight.

The labels on these boxes illustrate one of my favorite things about using the print and cut feature on the Silhouette. These labels are from a Jillibean Soup collection released in early 2012. These “soup labels” as they call them are sold as sticker sheets. As a print & cut file, I have the option of printing them as stickers, but also on regular cardstock like I did on this project, to make them into tags. I also have the option (like I did on this project) of changing the size when I print & cut them myself. I enlarged these tags quite a bit from their original size so that they would be a good size for this project. And, of course, if I wanted to, I can print as many as I need if I want to make multiples for a party or school exchange, or whatever.

The label with the chick on it was blank, so I grabbed my Lawn Fawn “Love n’ Breakfast” stamp set and stamped “you’re egg-cellent” on it. This is why it’s important to know your supplies. This wasn’t an Easter-themed stamp set, yet it had the perfect stamp in it for my theme!

Since the boxes are small, twine was the perfect “weight” to wrap around them, and the colors of it are so spring-y!

  44. karen morazes March 21, 2014 at 5:51 am #

    I too would love to win this machine; I have another cutting machine that I hate with a passion because I never seem to get a clean cut anything unless it is the simplest of shapes. A friend owns a silhouette and she just loves it….

  45. Isabel Z March 21, 2014 at 6:37 am #

    This is a wonderful opportunity so thank you. I would put this little machine to good use creating things for my preschool classroom and personal crafting. I have been wanting one of these for a long time but saving pennies takes a while.

  46. Carrie R. March 21, 2014 at 6:38 am #

  69. Barbara Burgess March 21, 2014 at 12:03 pm #
