I cut the SVG file out on a Cricut Maker. Placing two different pieces of card stock on the mat, I adjusted the file in Design Space. This made it easier to cut once instead of twice.
As a reminder when cutting, set the red lines to score and load your scoring tool before setting the file to cut. The materials are minimal for this project making it so easy to make. It would be fun to get the kids involved.
I cut the whisker with scissors from a scrap of black and chose to draw in the eyes instead of cutting them out.
The video tutorial below shows how to easily put the pieces together.

This view shows the size of the box that can be made from an 8.5 x 11″ sheet of card stock. Just the perfect size for a treat or a group of jelly beans!
Emboss aluminum foil as an alternative craft material.
I love finding alternative and inexpensive ways to craft. Today I am working with aluminum foil and embossing. The metallic shine is so pretty. After embossing the foil, I added alcohol ink to the surface. The ink really adds to the dimension and shows off the embossing.
There are a lot of uses for aluminum foil so I keep a roll in my craft room. Probably no surprise, I also keep a roll of parchment paper. I hadn’t used foil in a while and I wanted to emboss it. After doing so, it seemed appropriate to add the alcohol ink, they go together so well.
It is fun to just craft with your materials with no end product in mind. This was the case today. I knew I wanted to use the aluminum foil and emboss it, but that just wasn’t enough so I added the ink. Now I have this beautiful piece that will be used sometime soon. Maybe it will end up as a card background, or cut into a shape. It could be used in a mixed media piece. Maybe it will inspire more creative exploration using foil. Sometimes creating isn’t about the end result but the process, I am OK with that. I had fun with the process.
Have you ever made your own gift bag? It really isn’t difficult. I made this one from wrapping paper. It was actually so easy that I am not sure I will buy gift bags again. I can make them in whatever size I need. The cost savings is another advantage.
The materials needed are very limited. You will need a pair of scissors, double-sided tape, and of course wrapping paper. Depending upon how you embellish it, you will want those materials as well. I used a paper punch and twine. On another version, I folded over the top and used a sticker – so easy.
Follow the easy video tutorial above to make your own gift bag. You can make them as you need or prepare a bunch ahead of time for when you need them. A fun idea would be to choose a certain paper pattern per person for a holiday like Christmas. No name tags would be needed, just let them know their pattern on the special day.
