Watch for it Wednesday #51

Good Morning Everyone!

Today I wanted to show you some fun ways to use your dies making projects with your children or grandchildren. These are fast and simple projects using ordinary items from around your house.

I will be showcasing dies from both the CottageCutz Valentine Release and the CottageCutz Easter release, but these projects would work great with any holiday or theme.

Here is what you will need.

Basic Brown Lunch Bags
Toilet Paper or Paper Towel roll
Deco Scissors
Your favorite CottageCutz dies

Valentine Kids Create

***Brown Lunch Bag Valentine Treat Bag.
Fold over the top of the lunch bag, punch some holes and slip the ribbon through. Using the ribbon, add a tag. Decorate the front using the New CottageCutz Valentine dies.
***CottageCutz Heart Doily Lolly-Pop treat.
Cut the Heart Doily, remove all cut outs. Slip the Lolly-Pop through the two heart cut outs on the Doily. Slip the Ribbon through the swirls cut outs on either side of the Lolly-Pop and tie a bow.

Easter Kids Create

***Brown Lunch Bag Easter Basket.
Cut the lunch bag in half with Deco scissors. Using the Deco scissors again, cut a 1"x12" handle from cardstock and attach to bag. I also recommend cutting a piece of cardstock to place in the bottom of the treat bag to make it more sturdy. Decorate the front of the treat bag with the New CottageCutz Easter dies.
***CottageCutz Easter Egg Lolly-Pop treat.
Cut the Easter Egg. Punch two holes in the Egg. Slip the Lolly-Pop through the holes. Add a bow around the Lolly-Pop.
***Easter Egg Holders.
Cut 1" rings from either a paper towel or toilet paper roll. Cover the 1" rings with paper and add the New Mini CottageCutz Easter dies.

Have a great Wednesday!
