Welcome to our "Family and Friends" Blog Hop where we are showcasing  the exclusive Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge which can be purchased exclusively through a Close to My Heart Independent Consultant. This will be our last Art Philosophy blog hop for 2012.

We will be showing you creations made using the Art Philosophy cartridge for our family and friends.

My project is treat bags that I will set out on the table for our family dinner.  I thought I would make one for everyone at the table and fill it with some Christmas candy.

First let me show you a picture of my treat bags:

I cut the treat bags out of our Pear and Partridge paper.  You can find them on page 23, A3, Shift, Font Layer, < Star1 >.  I cut them at 4 1/4" out of Cranberry and Olive cardstock which coordinate with the paper pack.  The first layer was cut at 2" x 2" for the front and back and 1 1/4" x 2" for the sides.


The tags can be found on pages 52 and 60 of the cartridge and were cut at 2".
