Ellies Day Out

blogged by me domestic goddess On 6/26/2010 01:14:00 PM
Today it is my turn to blog over at Nikki Sivils. I had lots of fun playing with Ellies Day Out. I made a 12" x 12" layout of Izzy, using a photo I took of her the day before she went on her first school residential to Scraborough. Some of you may remember my post last month of tears and real concern about Izzy going, but it all turned out good in the end. From this photo you wouldnt even know  how worked up she was!

Supplies : Cardstock Co Ordinations, Pattern Paper Nikki Sivils Ellies Day Out, Diecuts Nikki Sivils, Chipboard Heidi Swapp and Cosmo Cricket, Flower Prima, Alphabet Cosmo Cricket

I also made a card and gift bag for a Teachers Gift, using Ellies Day Out. This is a cookie bag I have made on  numerous occasions; especially at Christmas!

Check out the instructions below.
Instructions :

  • Trim your 12" x 12" sheet into 6" x 12"
  • Now score 1 1/2" in from each side
  • Next score 5" up from the bottom and from the top
  • Score 2" down and 1 1/2" in, on all 4 sides
  • Cut along the line to the 5" score line, and cut the 2" x 1 1/2" out.
  • Ink if you want all edges at this stage
  • Using double sided tape, adhere 2 of the flaps and stick to from a box
  • Now lift up the 2 sides, you now have your basic cookie bag.
  • I now made a flap to pop over the top of my bad, using a scalloped punch.
  • I stuck the scalloped circle onto one side of the bag, and punch a hole and thread ribbon through to keep the bag closed.
  • Decorate your bag as you wish :)

I have a busy weekend ahead; a few projects to tie up, some sun worshipping to do, my monthly crop, and a dinner of steak on the BBQ with homegrown salad and Hestons new potatoes using all homegrown herbs!
Don't you just love the Summer!
Thanks for stopping by
