Whatever Wednesday

Happy Wednesday Everyone!!  Today is Whatever Wednesday over on My Creative Time blog
Today I made this Easter Bag to give to the Teachers.  I found these cute little Kraft bags as a set at Target and then cut a "window" to show the chocolate eggs!!  These bags are only 5x4 but they are actually a little bigger once opened as I used a whole bag of chocolate eggs and I'm going to need more to fill the bag up!!  I think too my kids have been helping themselves or perhaps the cat ~ lol!!

Close up of the "Easter scene" I made on the bag: 
Products Used:
Paper: misc. scraps
My Creative Time:  Hello Chickie!
Button, Sprinkle, Twine and Ribbon

How to cut out a "window":

I used the "insert" part of the Surprise Pop-Out Card die.
 I used washi tape to "hold" the die to the inside of the bag where I want the "window" to be.
 Ran the bag with die through my die cut machine ~ the "cut" surface was face up.
 And viola, you have a "cut-out" in the bag!!
Hope this has inspired you to add a "window" into your projects!!

Another project I've been working on is adding to my wood banner frame ~ made an Easter banner set.  Love the dies that really add so much to an Easter Scene!!
