Something Old....Something New

Welcome to Something Old...Something New, where each Wednesday, the Creations by AR DT members are taking an older template and giving it a new look!  This week it's my turn to share a project.

The first template of Adela's I ever used was the Haute Tote, so I thought it would be the perfect template for me to share for Something Old...Something New.  Adela's templates are available for use with Cutting Machines and also as PDF's for those who do not yet own machines.   When I first started using the templates I cut them by hand, thankfully I'm now the proud owner of a Silhouette, which makes cutting these projects a breeze!

I reduced the pattern by 50%, so that I could cut the pieces from Authentique's 6" x 6 " Blissful paper collection.  I also thought the smaller size would be perfect to hold a gift card!

The Something New on the Haute Tote, is the flower.  The flower is part of the Tissue Pot Template, keep reading below to find out how you can save $1 on the purchase of the Tissue Pot Template.

 Using the Silhouette Software, I removed the cut out that was in the center, and reduced the size of the flower to fit on the Tote.  I cut 3 different sized flowers, then snipped slightly along the petal so that I could scrunch and add dimension to the flower.

Here's a few "older" projects I created the Haute Tote template
