DIY gift bag.

I had an “aha!” moment last week while preparing [J]’s birthday surprise.

not a single store had a “golden birthday” gift bag. and a traditional “happy birthday” just wouldn’t do.

so I made my own.

[and thought: I could do this every time I need a gift bag, regardless of occasion].

DIY gift bag //

all you need is a plain gift bag [I got two at the dollar store for $1], glue, glitter, and a piece of chalk.

write your message on the bag with chalk. you could also draw a picture.

trace your chalk message with glue. and sprinkle with glitter!

shake off excess glitter. and let dry.

there you have it. a pretty, personalized gift bag for any occasion. 

so simple & easy. I will definitely be making more for a few upcoming weddings!

happy labor day all.

drumrollllllllllll, please.




[J] & I have opened our very own etsy store!!!


[emphasis on [J]. he’s the creator. I’m the assistant-ish].

it all started with a custom wedding gift we created for our friends. I am more appreciative of personal/meaningful gift giving. so we put our brains together & [J] concocted a gorgeous, custom made print. I died when I saw the finished product. it even received a few happy tears from the bride. mission accomplished.
