Gift Bags

The gift bag I made yesterday was a lovely little thing but it did take quite a lot of time measuring and folding. Because I needed to make five bags I decided to go for the easier paper option. I used brown paper and painted hearts on the ones for the hubster and my kids and painted white dots on for others. I filled them with little packets of sweets. I’m not a massive advocate of valentines day as I feel its forced romance and way to commercialised nowadays. But I do like to give the people in my life who I love dearly a little something to say they’re special to me x


A practice gift bag

I have bought some little bags of chocolate for the hubster and the kids for valentines day and to make them a bit more special I thought I’d make my own little gift bags. Hello trusty pinterest!!! I found a couple of options but last night I decided to give this one a go. I made it out of old card and I think its quite cute. Obviously the real thing will be decorated and I was thinking of trying it out of brown paper, possibly sponging some hearts on. Here’s the “prototype” – I’ll post the real thing when I complete.
