DIY Pretty Packages

This is a personal blog. All editorial content and projects are intellectual property of  I do receive financial compensation and material product from Crate Paper to develop my craft posts, but all ideas and opinions are my own.

Do you have extra bags on hand?  Wondering what to do with them?  I had a couple of cute muslin drawstring bags lying around that I thought would make cute packaging for gift giving.

I started by using a 1"inch circle punch from EK Success to punch out circles from gold glitter paper.  

I then used liquid adhesive to adhere the gold glitter circles to my bags in a polka dot pattern.

Next, came the embellishing.   Oh, how I love the fun papers and embellishments in the Crate paper Cute girl collection.  I chose papers and altered items that would work for birthdays or the everyday.

The tassels in the Cute girl collection are so gorgeous.  I wanted to use them all, but I decided on two of my favorites - (b/w polka dots with gold and mint with gold) to use on my bags.

I also added some darling ephemera pieces, gold bow paper clips and chipboard pieces.

 From my own stash I added a few doilies (white and gold) and gold glitter paper clips.

These bags came together in a snap and would be great for any occasion.
