Welcome!. I live in Oviedo, Florida with my handsome husband, two great kids and a pair of silly basset hounds. Oviedo is a little town where you can get a Barney’s coffee on one corner and have to wait for the chickens to cross on the next. I love to shop for vintage treasures to use in my home and artwork. Come along with me!
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!
