When you're on a budget you have to be creative and work with what you have. I did just that when my sisters baby shower came around and I needed to make party favor bags for the favors we were handing out. I've had these brown paper bags since living in New Jersey, they are hardly ever used so this was a good opportunity to finally use them. This project cost me nothing since I already had everything on hand.
For this project you'll need a variety of acrylic paints
hole punch optional
bakers twine optional
I needed to use my calligraphy skills (which are not so great) to write thank you. I drew on some flowers using the brushes and then added the details. It was super easy. I finished it off by folding the bag down in half, punched a hole and tied some bakers twine. It turned out super cute and everyone loved them.
