Visions of Sugarplums Day Three

Welcome back!  We're right in the middle of a fun week of Christmas!  

Today I've got a couple of projects featuring graphics from Cameo Shoppe.  Cristina is one of the sponsors of Visions of Sugarplums and is generously offering a giveaway every day!

First up is a pillow box that I made with a Pillow Box Punch Board.  (I've put one of these in the Mega GiveAway.)  It is a pretty cool tool!  You can see one of Cameo Shoppe's circle images there.  Isn't the pink tree pretty?  It's a part of the Christmas Circle Tags set.

I guess I'm not tired yet of the gusseted bags.  This one is a fun size!  

I used a couple more of the pretty circle tags to create snowflakes.  I think these images are just adorable!  If you want to know how to make the 3D snowflakes, you can see them HERE.

Here's how to make the skinny bag with a rounded flap:

You need two sheets of printed paper.  Cut one panel to 6" x 10 3/4".  Score at 1/2", 1", and 1 1/2".  Also score at 4 1/2", 5", and 5 1/2".  

Turn it and score at 1/2" and 8 3/4".

Cut away the top corners on the 8 3/4" score line and on the 1/2" score line from above.  To make the rounded flap. use a circle die.  When you run it through your die cutting machine, don't run it all the way through.  Stop at the 8 3/4" score line - otherwise you'll just have cut a big circle out! 

Fold the gussets (instructions HERE).  Fold up the bottom 1/2".  Cut a second panel to 3" x 8 3/4".  Die cut a half circle into the top.   And glue it to the gusseted panel.  Fold the flap over and you're done!
