The Partiologist: Gift Bag Ideas!

Gift Bag Ideas!

With May Day behind us, and Mother's Day quickly approaching I felt it necessary to share a quick and easy way to make a gift bag.  Out of a lunch sack. Brown or White.

Gift Bag
Starts with a plain brown lunch sack~

Fold down the top~

Fold it down again~

Tie with a piece of jute~

Now make the flower with coffee filters and cupcake papers - (coffee filter flower idea from one charming party)

Just keep adding until you get the look~

Put a button in the center and fill the bag with paper shred and little gift!

Now if you want, use a white paper bag. 

Fold down the top and add ribbon~

Make your flower out of white coffee filters and colored cupcake papers~

Add a button to the middle!
If your mom is a little more wild than frilly, I've got just the bag for her~

Fold down the bag, add ribbon & matching tissue paper.
And maybe some chocolate bars from Whole Foods.
The possibilities are endless! 

Wild or Frilly?

I'm Wild with a touch of Frilly AND Chocolate!
