If you're tying the knot by the ocean, put this sea-inspired favor favor bag project on your radar. Complete with a sweet anchor motif and navy-and-white twine enclosure, these pale blue packages are easy to assemble on your own. Your Martha Stewart Explore Air 2 Cricut machine will do the majority of the work—just be sure to have some transfer tape on hand, too. The hardest part of this DIY? Choosing goodies to fill your finished products with.
Follow the project link to Design Space®. If you want to alter the project, click "Customize," and then use the tools in the Edit panel to make changes. Click "Continue" or "Make It."
To cut your project, place the first piece of material onto the Standard Grip mat. Follow the prompts to load the machine.
Press the flashing "Go" button, and cut! Unload the mat. Peel away the negative material, then if needed, use the spatula from the Basic Tool Set to lift the individual pieces.
Continue Step 2 and 3 by loading the cutting mat with each new sheet of material, then into the machine as prompted.
To make the box, fold cut cardstock scoring lines. For crisp corners use bone folder over scoring marks. Insert bottom flaps so that it connects. Add adhesive to open end of treat bag and place small amount of adhesive on one side of bottom flap.
Remove the unneeded pieces using a weeder tool. It is usually easiest to remove from the inside out when weeding.
Use Transfer Tape and your Scraper tool to apply the vinyl cuts to your project. Make sure surfaces you plan to adhere to are clean and dry. Tip: If you have never used vinyl before, you can learn more at help.cricut.com.
Place candy or treats into bag and close top flap. Feed through the twine through holes and tie a bow to seal the bag.
