Kitty Cat Bag

We have two black cats so I just had to make this cute favor bag. This file is from the Silhouette Online Store and was so simple to make. This would be a great treat for a birthday party and when you open the file it is sized perfectly for a  party favor.


I cut the file and all layers, using a variety of card stock from my stash. The handle was originally one layer, but using the Cameo software, I quickly made an inside layer. With the Cameo and the included software, you can quickly make a shadow (offset) layer for any image and you can also make an internal layer (internal offset) of any image. Wow! My mind is spinning with all the possibilities. I added faux stitching and was done! So easy!

I purchased this file for $.99 and you can order it here. I am so enjoying my Cameo and loving my Cricuts too. It’s like one big happy family!

Thanks for visiting and please stay tuned for a new video…hint it involves ribbon.

That is soooo adorable! I don't have cats (I'm a dog person) but I would buy that file right now ;). I love the faux stitching too.

Linda,
Love the cute bag! I am guessing that the cameo file isn't usable with the Gypsy or Cricut Craft Room. I would love to do this for my grand-daughter's birthday. I haven't been able to find the Hello Kitty cartridge, but this would so work. Do you know if the file would work?

Tammy, sorry the file will not work using the Cricut. There are lots of Cricut cartridges that contain little favors and purses, but I have not seen a cat one. Maybe one of my readers will know of one.

So cute! My son loves cats, so I'm glad I clicked on your link to the store and found out that the bow is optional. I know he would love this.
