I saw this idea on Pinterest and I had to try it. They are so much fun to make - and a little addicting because of that. The tutorial I used was on DIY Wedding Ideas - please go there and see what their bag with a twist looks like. They used this idea for a wedding favor. They sewed the bag together - and although I do have a sewing machine - I made mine a little different....
2. With the sticky exposed - bring the other side of the paper over to make a tube and stick it together.
3. Without creasing the sides - fold up the bottom about 1/2 and inch and staple at least twice.
4. Now for the top you want to turn the tube so that you will close it the opposite direction as the bottom. I just fold the top over for now - as I want to fill it with some goodies.
I punched a lattice edge from my Martha Stewart punch for the top and bottom edges and applied them on with staples. I tied on a bow, and added a metal "Believe" tag. I am going to make a whole bunch more of these for Christmas.
I made a smaller bag by putting two images on one page and cutting the page in half. These little bags are just adorable. On this one I sewed the bottom edge to enclose it and I punch two holes in the top and tied it shut with a ribbon. The image I used on this one is from Graphics Fairy -Vintage Floral Spray Postcard
I am loving these bags - and I am thinking you will too! Go on and give it a try!

I saw this on there a few weeks ago and pinned it too! :) Wonderful idea to do them for Christmas. What will you fill them with?ReplyDelete
I am thinking of putting candy like werthers in there. Baking would go well too, I would just need to plastic wrap it first. :)ReplyDelete
I did this for our frugal scrapbooking day at RS a couple of years ago. It is so easy and gets a great result. Having fun catching up on your blog as it's been a while since I visited. Hope you're ready for a great summer. Congrats to Maria on her grad.ReplyDelete
