After an extended break and a steep learning curve – I’ve re-entered the world of videos. This may sound surprising to some, but I am so NOT technical. Whenever I try something new, I do eventually “get it”, but not until I’ve invested hours of sweat, tears and occasionally banging my head against the table (it’s either that or throwing my computer out the window *lol*!). Learning how to take, edit and upload videos definitely caused lots of “head banging” for me *lol*….but, for the most part, I think I actually have it sorted out.
For today’s project, I designed this Valentine’s treat tote. You can see an open view of the treat tote below. I custom designed the template for this based on the size of my treat bottles. The bottles themselves are a square shape – they are 1 1/2″ wide and just over 4″ tall. I purchased my bottles from a really neat online store I recently discovered, called SKS Bottle and Packaging, Inc, based out of the US. Of course I paid a killer amount in brokerage fees because they shipped UPS (the brokerage fees cost about 1/2 the value of my order).
I put together 2 videos to show you how I made this project – the first video shows you how to make the actually tote, the second video shows you how I decorated the front. CLICK HERE TO WATCH BOTH VIDEOS.
