Bon Voyage!

Do you have that someone in your life who loves
to hop on a cruise ship and sail away?  Shellye here today
to share a neat way to send them off in style with the 
Anchored Collection!

Take an ordinary windowed bakery bag, decorate and then fill with fun treats that they can use and enjoy: sunscreen, Dramamine, snacks, journal, a new iPod etc....choose a larger bag if needed!

First, you'll need a bakery bag, or two, or can find them here

Next, using either round dies, punches or a template, match up the size of the window opening with the smallest die possible. Select a die that is roughly 1/2" larger  than the inner die.

Layer the two dies together onto a selected piece of Anchored Paper and cut!

Turn the shape into a life preserver by decorating with just a few snips of paper that have been glued to the sides as shown above.  Adhere over the window with foam adhesive for an even more dramatic look.

If you decide to also decorate the front with paper, first determine the width and height and then measure in from the sides to find the exact placement for the smallest die and then cut.  Add any embellishments, such as brads or hand-sewn buttons before adhering to the bag.  
That's all there is to it!  This would also make a handsome treat bag for a nautical themed baby shower or birthday party!
