Freebie #52!

Candy/Gift Bag

[ EDIT - I've started to make my files available from my blog again and am adding a new set each week. Check out the "Cutting Files" tab at the top of the page to see which ones are available for download.]

Aren't these fun? Modelled on the traditional brown paper grocery bag, they're perfect for small gifts, party favours, candy or cookies! Fill with the goodies of your choice, fold over the top and staple closed or punch a couple of holes and tie with some pretty ribbon!

The places to make the major folds are obvious, but I've included score guides on the side panels for the inverted Y folds. In my initial design I included ready cut holes for ribbon, but I found that when I resized the bag larger or smaller the holes became either too big or too small so I left them out - it's no trouble to make your own holes with a punch or cropodile, then they're always the right size :)

Please remember you are only allowed to download this file for your own use and may not distribute it to others in any form. I spend a great deal of time creating my designs, please respect the terms under which they are given.

Again, this template will be "live" for 1 week. Next week it will be taken down, and new ones will replace it. Don't forget, if you have any requests, pass them on! I can't promise, but I will take suggestions into account when planning future templates.

These files may not be uploaded to a group, forum or website for sale or redistribution, or shared among individuals. They are expressly for the personal use of each person that downloads them from this blog.

There is 1 file but I have put it into a zip file to make downloading easier. After saving it, open in the usual way, and drag the file out onto your desktop or wherever you wish to save it.

There are 2 versions of each template:
  • An SVG version which can be imported into the Sure Cuts a Lot or Make the Cut program and then cut out on your Cricut.
  • A DXF version which is Craft Robo friendly, and ready to be imported into your Robomaster software (I'm not a Robo user, so if there are any problems with this, please let me know!)
Simply click on the appropriate button below to download the file!

Any feedback on the templates is more than welcome, and if you have any suggestions for possible future templates you'd like to see, please let me know! If you make anything using one of the templates, please post a link to it here so that others can be inspired by how you've used them!
I hope you like the templates - let me know how you get on! :)
