Remember, there’s no need to re-size anything if you’re using SCAL2.  Each shape will import at the proper size.  Just import and cut!  In case you need the sizes I used, here’s what I did.

Design Tips

Mary Rudakas

  • Watch my video and/or refer to your PDF instructions for folding and assembling the rosette.  It's easier than it looks!
  • Double-sided tape works best for assembling the rosette but if you want to use glue, you can hold it closed with clothespins while it dries completely.
  • Black ink on the edges of most of the shapes looks fantastic!
  • A dark color behind the moon looks eerily perfect and a 3D dot behind the bats adds nice dimension.  If it's too large, cut it in half.
  • You probably SHOULD glue the bottom closed so that any goodies you put inside don't push open the bottom.

I hope you have fun with this project and enjoy giving someone goodies in this adorable bag!  ~Mary  :)
