I love bling! and so i was thinking of how to make chandelier centerpieces for our reception tabl...
I was on Martha Stewart's website awhile back & saw these adorable bags that could be used for so many things, from favors, to desserts to gifts. In our case, since we have the favors already taken c/o, I will be making these bags up for the kid's station. They won't be as formal with the scripted font, but I will have some type of kiddie font or bubble letters on the bag. I have a ton of white paper bags that I was going to use for luminaries, but there's enough for this project to save $$$.
Inside, there will be retro candy (Bottle Caps, Lemon Heads, Mike & Ikes, Bubble Gum), stickers, bubbles, & crayons. That way, it stays pretty gender specific. There will also be girl/boy friendly prizes & giveaways in a tote for the kids that an adult will give out.
Here's the directions, if interested:
Ribbon Loop How-ToFor this gift bag, we used a 5-by-9 1/2-inch paper bag and a 19 1/2-inch length of 1-inch-wide ribbon. A slightly stiff ribbon works better than a floppy satin. Punch two holes in the bag's center, one above the other, about 1/2 inch apart. Fold ribbon lengthwise; notch ends. Pull the folded end through the bottom hole, from the front to the back of the bag, then pull it forward through the top hole, creating a loop from the top third of the ribbon. Tie the ends in a square knot.
