We haven't had a vacation is several years. Well, we have but not like this one. When you live away from family, your vacations usually consist of going to visit them. Without my Dad around though, it's different now. Utah seems so foreign and even though Kent's family is there and my siblings are there, it's just not the same for me and I really wasn't ready yet to be there long term.
So, instead, we were given the opportunity to go to Yellowstone and we took it. It was fantastic. We camped and explored - nature is amazing.... Oh, wait, this post isn't supposed to be about my trip. It is about a super easy little gift bag though.
I found these cute little bags in the Target Dollar Spot a few weeks ago.
I bought them as car bags for our trip but didn't end up using them for that. Instead, I turned them into gift bags. I'm a fan of a good gift bag and I find that the cheap paper, printed versions that tear quickly and get thrown out, just aren't what I'm looking for. Because of that I'm always on the look out for other options.
Here's the deal on this bag. It's easy. Like it took me more time to find my brads than it did to make the project. Here's what you need to personalize and decorate your own woven bag.
2 - Go to the Dollar Store and buy cheap flowers - they are only a $1 for a bunch
3 - Find some brads in your paper crafting stash from when you used to scrapbook - I have lots!
You can also do the same thing on other bags too. Just make sure they have a loose weave so the brad can go through the material easy. I bought the little pink clutch above at Hobby Lobby for $1.99. It's the perfect size for my girls. They can carry their cell phones and a little cash.
And, don't limit yourself to just large flowers - think about using small ones too. I actually love this one best, the border that the flowers created are really cute, simple and dainty.
