I wanted to share with you all the things I got out of a paper bag when planning my parents anniversary reception. I was pretty excited at how many things came out of one bag!! Mainly because I purchased them at Hobby Lobby after Valentine's day and paid about 22 cents for a package of 10 bags! I hope that makes you excited too!
Out of one bag I got:
Water bottle label
Favor bag topper
And the way I cut them, which was pure luck, there was little scraps and I still have some bags that I never cut!
I measured about 4 inches from the bottom of the bag and used pinky shears to get the popcorn bag. This is
what is leftover.
I then measured the width of the favor bag along the edge I cut, marked it.
Then I cut. I used the folds in the bag as a guide...I cut where the arrows are pointing. This left the middle section that I used for the food labels!
Then flattened out.....
......and cut with regular scissors along the natural fold of the bag.
Wallah! Hope that made sense! We later put a photo of our parents in the center.
I then took the remaining piece of the bag and measured the label from the watter bottle.
I got two labels from the one cut!
Used box tape to apply the label.
For the food labels I cut a rectangle using the inside paper of the frame as a guide and made the words with the frame graphic on my computer, cut them out and taped to the rectangle.
Here's the popcorn bags and food label.....
....and the final favor bag!
In case you messed it, I gave all the details in this week's Soiree Day!
Pretty good for 22 cents huh?
