Hello, friends:}

Savannah O'Gwynn here, and this week I'm posting my video EARLY! Today I share how to die cut just the front panel of Whisker Graphics bitty bags using different Paper Smooches dies. This is a SUPER SIMPLE technique and is a great way to dress up any bag!

Oh Savannah! You have outdone yourself again!!! These little baggies decorated with your special touch are adorable - ADORABLE!!! Now, I MUST get myself some of these bags. And I am going to HAVE to break down and buy myself a die cutting machine (can you believe I don't have one?!!). Because I HAVE to be able to make these!
