Watering Can Gift Bag

I know I have mentioned this before, but I just LOVE my Silhouette. I don't think I have ever owned a tool that I use more and that give me so much versatility when I scrapbook.

Today I want to share with you a 3D project I did for Mother's Day. I used the Mother's Garden SVG kit from SVG Cuts to make this watering can gift bag. Of all the places I visit for svg's, this is my favourite one.


I cut the main part of my watering can out of this beautiful dot paper from LilyBee Designs. I added the border from one the the coordinating papers and accented with blue Kraft Core cardstock.


The handle is cut in many layers and attached with brads to make it really sturdy. I sanded the edges of the Kraft Core cardstock to expose the inner colour.


My favourite part is the spout. I inked and sanded my pieces but I also poked holes that water would come out of.......although I don't recommend filling it, lol!


I made a matching tag from one of the other sets that was included and attached it with tulle.
