Very Cute DIY Project...

>> Wednesday, May 6, 2009

Once again I have found the cutest DIY project over on one of my favorites blogs, Once Wed. Emily always has the most adorable DIY projects that are so easy to do and will not hurt your pocket. This project was made by a talented Etsy designer by the name Marissa. How cute would these bags be? Filled with your favorite candies, cookies or mini cakes. Or they could also be used to give presents to your bridesmaids!


Directions::
1. Using a pair of nice sharp pliers, cut the tops off of 4 or 5 miniature artificial flowers so that they are approximately 1.5" long.

2. Bundle flowers together and wrap with a small piece of tape. I got this cute plum roll of masking tape
here, but floral tape or any old masking tape will work well for this.

3. Tape flower bundle down to paper bag, centered and approximately 1" from the bottom

4. Using template, trace shape for vase onto backside of the patterned decorative paper and cut out


5. Fold under edges approximately 1/8" and run a bead of glue along both tabs.
6. Press firmly in place onto bag over flowers. I found it easiest to hold and secure one side for a few seconds and to then press the other side down.
7. Cut a piece of 8.5" x 11" solid color cardstock into 1" strips. Fold strips in half and using scissors, snip a notch at the folded end to form two paper flags. Write your message onto the flag, fill bag with contents, fold top of bag down 1/2" onto itself 3 times and clip flag onto the front using a miniature clothespin.

Hey! Thanks for finding my blog!! I love blogging about my wedding, however have been SWAMPED with things as of late. By the way- I listen to k92 ALL the time!! My fiance and I are always trying to guess the secret sound- lol.

LOVE this diy. These would be cute filled with a little tea bag. You could snip the end off where it says "lipton" or whatever your tea is and make your own tag that said your name. I may just do this!!
