Hi friends! It’s Joy from Joy’s Life here, sharing a quick and easy bag made with the Silhouette Cameo and Core’dinations papers and vellum quotes.
Eat Dessert First Treat Bag Supplies:
- Core’dinations Teal Quatrefoil Cardstock
- Core’dinations Vellum Quotes & Titles
- Silhouette Cameo 2
- Bracket Window Box file #19287
- Zip Dry Paper Glue
- Pom Pom Ribbon
Step 1. This bag is easy to create. Simply cut it out using the bracket window box #19287 from the Silhouette Store. I’m using a piece of Core’dinations Teal Quatrefoil paper #GX-2300-66.
Step 2. I re-sized the bracket area to approximately 3.1 x 3.1 so I could glue a Core’dinations vellum quote inside.
Step 3: Using Zip Dry Paper Glue, I glued the vellum quote inside the bag.
Step 4: Fold the perforated lines, add a few dabs of glue and a ribbon and you’re done!
Now it’s all ready for sharing a delicious treat or small gift. I chose a blue that’s a great shade for winter themes but it’s easily changed for any occasion!
Have a wonderful winter! I hope you enjoyed this project! When I’m not here you can find me at JoysLife.com!

Step 1: Die cut, punch, and hand cut a variety of shapes from the papers. Hearts, circles, and scalloped circles work best as these can be easily layered. Emboss shapes from the Chalk Core and Spotted papers.
Step 3: Layer shapes and embellishments and create strands with your photos to determine layout of mobile. I used a total of 7 strands to complete my mobile with the photos cut to 2 inch squares. Each strand had a total of 4 photos (two on each side) and 6 layered embellishments (again, two per side). for a total of 28 photos and 42 layered shapes. Your number may vary.
Step 4: To assemble strands sandwich wire between shapes, being sure to leave enough wire at the top to wrap around embroidery hoop later.
Step 9: Finally wrap the embroidery hoop with lace. I plan on hanging this mobile in my guest room/office for all to see. I love that I can see all the photos of my family every day.
We still have weeks more of winter, but I am already yearning for the warmer days of spring.

Are you guys ready for Spring yet? The part of the country that I’m from, we haven’t had much of a winter. Bulb flowers are already starting to bloom and it is only the first part of February.
