KNK Secrets Revealed – retreat goodie bag

Appleton, WI is the original home of Harry Houdini, hence the retreat theme of “KNK Secrets Revealed”. Each participant received a bag of goodies for cutting, embossing, punching, and engraving – and they even got to decorate their bags while we were there!

Below is my sample bag, front and back.

About Cuttin' with KNK (Michele)

I am the proud mother of 2 grown children, waiting for grandchildren some day. I've been married to my best friend since 1988. I have been crafting since I was a girl - I can't even remember a time when I wasn't creating something, and I've tried nearly everything. I discovered KNK in 2009 and have loved the company and its products ever since. The machines are so versatile and enhance my own creativity. It is rare that I make something without my KNKs.

  1. You always rock it, Michele. That bag is AWESOME, and the one that we did in Orlando Retreat was TERRIFIC too. I LOVE mine.

    The Retreats are really good to gain experience and to feel more comfortable using our TERRIFIC cutter machines.

  2. Love this idea! Michele, I wish you would have promoted this retreat on the groups because I definitely would have come!
