Aloha gift bags

Aloha again, bloggers :) !  Today's my day to share my project over at She's a Sassy Lady blog.  Thanks, Sheila for giving me this opportunity once a month to share with your readers.  As some of you know, we just got back from a wonderful trip to a couple of the Hawaiian islands (Kauai and the Big Island) a little over a week ago.  After unpacking I finally found a few of the little trinket souvenirs I bought some friends and family members and I wanted to present them in nice little gift bags.

This project was achieved using the Silhouette Cameo, printed using my printer and diecuts were achieved using the Cameo.  Below are the pieces I needed after printing and cutting.

The "Aloha" title and the flowers were images by Sophie Gallo (Design ID #34443).  I ungrouped the images then sized them to fit inside a rectangle sized at 8.110 x 4.980.  Since I was in a hurry I made the images inside this rectangle to print only.  I also used the internal offset feature to create the faux stitching for me.  Then I copied the bottom flower and cut some in pink cardstock.  Then I cut a green mat sized at 8.25 x 5.125.  

I used some foam mounts to attach the cut out pink flowers on top of the one printed on the front for some dimension.

Then to finish off the bags I added a piece of burlap and glued some glass half pebbles and a seashell to each bag.  These bags were so easy to make.  Hope you liked my project today and hope you all have a wonderful start to your week.
