Have you used any templates?

I keep seeing the gorgeous little gift sets all over the place and people say they used a template. Ok, so I have some templates but these things come out so tiny, you can only place a handful of candy in them. What am I doing wrong? How do I get to make a bigger box or bag? Something big enough to hold a real gift and not a little trinket or is that what these are for? On people's blogs, these things look normal sized. On my blog this looks normal sized. LOL!

I like how this came out. I just wished it was bigger. This template from is small. It hold 2 mini sized bottles of Bath a& Body Works lotion. The image is a freebie at Anne Bodil's blog, here.

So tell me your template experiences.
