burlap joy bags & my next craft fair!

Hello!  Wow, I think I need to nap from the 3 day weekend we had.  Either that or drink some coffee which I think I need to start up again just so I can have some energy in the mornings.  I had some coffee over the weekend and I felt like crafting all day! 

I purchased these cute drawstring burlap bags and added the fabric joy sentiments onto them.  I made something similar to these before on smaller muslin bags.  These burlap bags seem much more practical since they are larger and can even hold a gift card, perfect for the upcoming holidays.

I also made small kraft tags with red twine to go along with these bags.  You'll have to practice some small handwriting as these tags are small but this size seems more proportional to the larger burlap bags.

Here's a giftcard hanging from the top of the bag.  I'll be posting these photos onto its Etsy listing which is why I have that disclaimer up there.  Can't be too careful these days as a seller or buyer.  Need to take lots of precautions in either role.

Here's how it looks gently stuffed.  I'd take into consideration where the drawstring closes to see if your small wrapped treat/favor/gift would fit in here.

And I just got confirmation for my next craft fair.  If you are local, come visit me at the Moanalua 99 Craft Fair (where 99 Ranch Market used to be) on Sunday, September 20th from 10 am - 3 pm.  I'll have some handmade cards, potholders, tote bags, fabric wine bags, some of these joy bags, and jewelry.  Free parking and lots of wonderful AC for these hot, humid days. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Perfect idea for gift wrapping, especially for smaller items like giftcards. This is a great idea! I might have to give it a try I have some of those burlap bags and have been trying to figure out how to make them functional and cute. A simple sentiment is perfect. TFS!
