One of my favorite things about digital cut files is that they’re so flexible. You can make them bigger or make them smaller, and you can repurpose them and combine them in different ways to make completely new projects.
In this tutorial, I combine the rainbow and cloud from the Cascade Rainbow A2 Card Kit and the Scallop Top Treat Bag (minus the handles) to make these super cute, personalized treat bags that would make super sweet favor or treat bags at children’s birthday parties. I actually filled them with treats and stickers and gave them to my niece and nephew at Easter, and they were a big hit!
Before I cut all of the pieces with my Cameo, I resized the rainbow and cloud pieces to 80% their original size to fit the treat bag. Then, I used Silhouette Studio’s text tool to personalize the clouds. I used the Learning Curve Pro (free) font because I wanted something sweet and cute for the names. Finally, I cut and assembled all of the pieces to make the colorful treat bags.
It’s easy to make a bunch of these at once. Just copy and paste additional rainbow strips and base pieces until you have the number that you need and cut them all at once.
Tips: When you’re assembling the rainbow, it’s best to run a thin strip of glue and glue one piece at a time. If you’re using liquid glue (like I did) and try to cover the rainbow base all at once, the glue will start to dry unless you’re really, really fast at positioning the rainbow strips. Also, since the bottom of the cloud is not attached to anything, you only need to add glue in the top center area on the back before gluing it in place.
