Fun packaging to share!

I mailed the winners of my Valentine giveaway their packages this week. I had some fun using brown paper bags in the packaging and wanted to share the technique with you.  It is so easy!  
Simply leave the paper bag folded at the bottom and sew up each side. I chose to use a fancy stitch! Leave the top open.  Fold the top and punch two small holes about an inch apart.  The package can now be closed with bakers twine or ribbon. Voila!  Isn't this cute?

I added a paper lace heart with a stamped monogram on each.  Although I have seen similar packaging on Pinterest, I got this great idea from a local vendor that sells here in Oviedo. The always have creative packaging.  You can visit Ragtag Rubies here.  They have really fun recycled goodies. Kara loves their jewelry.  Thanks for visiting!

  20. Very pretty way to package up gifts. I always have grand ideas for such things but am such a procrastinator that I'm usually throwing things together at the last minute. :/ Hope you have a wonderful weekend. Tammy
