And speaking of fabulous DIY details, I am so excited to share this adorable project for DIY Gift Bags that Kathleen of Twig & Thistle designed exclusively for SMP readers. It's too cute to resist and I am pretty sure that I am going to be making these time and time again. Kathleen is behind some of our all time most popular DIY features including these adorable hot cocoa bags and these perfect favor boxes. You can check out all of her goodies on her etsy shop, as well as some pretty fab ideas on her blog, perfect for the chic, crafty gal.

Ink Jet Color Printer
5x7 White Paper Bags


1. Download the bag graphic and type in names and event date in spaces provided. Follow the directions in the PDF for printing with an Ink Jet Printer. If you don't have an Ink Jet or if your printer doesn't allow you to print odd formats, you can print directly onto sticker paper (found at office supply stores) and post apply to the bag.

2. Help maintain freshness and keep sweets from leaving oil stains on the paper bag by lining with a glassine envelope.

3. Add a little more detail to the bags and scallop the top with a pair of pinking shears or rotary cutter.

4. Fill bag with treats and serve!
