Sew and Tell: fabric party favor bags

If you’re planning a party or wedding, here’s a great way to use up scraps of fabric.

Make fabric party favor gift bags.

I used scraps of vintage fabric to embellish the front of each bag.

Fringe the fabric scrap and top of the gift bag. Fill with your goodies and close up with a piece of twine or ribbon.

My bags look like miniature feed sacks but you can use any fabric to make cute bags.

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.

Etceteras: emergency kit gift box

With all the bad weather we’ve had this winter, I thought it might be a good idea  to have some emergency supplies on hand. I found some emergency candles and match boxes at the dollar store.



I covered the match boxes in kraft paper and added vintage match book graphics.


 
I wrapped the candles in vintage-looking lace and tied them together with a piece of twine.

I think this would make a nice housewarming gift or party favor. For an extra special gift box or gift basket, you could add additional items, such as; batteries, a flashlight, water bottles, candy, mittens, a deck of cards or anything else that might come in handy if the power went out.


 
The supplies fit perfectly in a kraft box I had on hand. I finished up the kit by adding a label to the top of the box. (Vintage label courtesy of the Graphics Fairy).

Emergency supplies – check. Hopefully, we won’t need to use them.
