Treat Boxes by Christine, bag by Natalie and a Guest Post by Linda Vergottini
Today Christine is sharing her talents and gifts with us, quite literally actually, I am so excited to share them with you. Christine says…
I have a thing for treat boxes. I just love making and giving them. I love how one simple cut file can be a Valentine treat holder one minute and a Mother’s Day gift bag the next. It all depends on the paper and embellishments that you use. So when this file, Treat Box with Handle, was put in the store, I knew it would be one that I could use over and over again.
The other thing that I want to mention about this cute little treat box is that it is all one piece that fits nicely on a 12×12 piece of paper. All of the score lines are there and the only adhesive you need to put it together is a strip on the side seam. The rest of the box is held together with flaps and tucks which makes it very easy and fast to put together. It literally took longer to cut the file than it did for me to assemble it. That is fast!!
To create my boxes, I used the Love Story Collection by Lori Whitlock for Echo Park. It is one of the most amazing paper collections that I have ever used and definitely my favorite Valentine themed line ever. The stickers that you see are from that collection as well.

Natalie has this adorable bag that she created for her daughter as a scripture bag. I LOVE this and think Lori’s fabric makes it even more fabulous.
Hello everyone, today we have a break in the paper crafting to share with you a little bag I made for my daughter’s birthday. She turned 8 this last week, and from her grandpa she received a set of scriptures for church. Since I knew these were coming, I decided to make a bag for her to put them in. I was in my local craft store and spotted Lori Whitlock’s Hello Sunshine collection in fabric from Riley Blake, and since it was to darling to pass up, I grabbed it and came home and went to work.
I pinned this pattern from Pinterest a while back, and actually made ballet bags for both of my girls with it to hold their shoes to take to class. It was simple and perfect size I made it again for this bag. I did actually make the bottom a little more narrow than the pattern called for so it would fit her scriptures better. Since it needed a little dressing up, I added the flower to make it a little more frilly, just like my daughter is. Lets just say she was thrilled with it, and can’t wait to take them to church with her.
Today I also have a guest designer to share with you. Her name is Linda Vergottini. She used Lori’s 1 drawer box to make this adorable mini album. Thank you for sharing with us, this is so beautiful and clever!
