Etceteras: craft party favor bag

Here’s a fun way to use up bits of paper and fabric scraps.
For your next get together or even kid’s party, assemble a craft party favor bag.


Bits of paper or fabric can be used for flags or bunting.

Add twine and toothpicks.


Make a simple favor bag out of parchment paper and add a label.

Guests just need to add some glue and a little creativity to make some fun goodies.

Inkling: oh christmas tree, oh christmas tree


For my final Christmas project, I wanted to accomplish two things. One: make a Christmas tree and, two: use up some of my scraps of paper.

I have a box of paper scraps that would no longer close and it was definitely time to either toss some of it or find a way to use up some of the smaller pieces.


I started with another branch that I rescued from the yard clipping bin. I made a cone out of cardstock and hot glue gunned it onto the branch. Then, I cut strips of paper and started gluing and gluing and gluing.

My tree is a little crooked and uneven but I like it like this. It gives it a Charlie Brown Christmas Tree feel.

A tree can get much greener than this. The trunk made from yard clippings and branches made from scrap paper.

Inkling: gift tags galore


One can never have too many pairs of shoes…or gift tags. I found a box of merchandise tags in my stash and decided to dress them up with some scraps of paper.

Do you save little bits of paper left over from projects? I do. And this was the perfect project to use the tiniest bits. The paper I used was printed out from templates found on various sites. One great site is http://www.freeprintable.com/. You can find loads of graph paper and writing paper under miscellaneous / paper.

This was a fun, quick project. The merchandise tags are great to have on hand – especially if you don’t have a nifty die-cutting machine.

Happy weekend!
