Bag it up!

Papercraft Inspirations - - CONNECT -

It’s not only six year olds who love a party bag! I made these Arty Farty Wag Bags as party bags for a friend’s 60th birthday. For the first one I drew around the tem­plate onto pearl card then, be­fore con­struct­ing the bag, I stamped a rose de­sign onto it. For the other bags I used pat­terned card. I used hooks and loops to fas­ten them and dec­o­rated them with punched flow­ers and sparkly gems. One bag I added a tas­sel to, and on an­other I added a wooden bird. I dec­o­rated some of the flaps with lace and strings of pearls. I filled the bags with Sanctuary Spa good­ies, hand­made chocs and a scratch card – they were very well re­ceived.
