An Easter treat!

Well I am recovering from visiting  the Big Stamp and Scrapbooking show yesterday. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and met up with some fabulous crafting friends, Gemma, Tamzin, Jean and Louise!
Once again it is time for the Scribble and Scrap and challenge, which is always anything goes.
I am particularly excited this week as I have actual designed my own Silhouette files!
I wanted to create an Easter treat bag and to incorporate the lovely Archie digi stamp. I used Serif draw to create a top and bottom to my bag, and also the mats. I drew the flower, egg and zigzags myself in the program and exported them. 
I traced the Archie digi, used print and cut and then coloured using my copics.
I measured a piece of cellophane to the width of the bag and adjusted the height to suit the number of eggs that I had to wrap. I created a tube with double sided tape running down the middle at the back (the bag could be made from Acetate!)
The top part of the bag features a v shaped (book cover)piece of card and then the handle piece (which sticks on to the v shaped piece). The bottom of the bag is just a v shaped (book cover) piece with a mat. I decorated with my flowers, which were printed from the Scribble and Scrap papers, One for the Boys (I LOVE that paper pack!) and Soft Lemon and White 
So here is my Easter treat bag, with for the very first time my own Silhouette Files :)
Happy Crafting!
