I made a gift-bag-recipe-holder with a cooking utensil set. The cookie bag was super easy to make. I started with a bag wrapped with some burlap ribbon. I like to use lots of texture when making simple items. It really jazzes it up. I topped the burlap with a doilie. I grabbed a metal circle tag from my stash and decorated it with the punched circle heart. I finished it with twine.
I moved on to the utensils. I pick this set up at Ikea for mere pennies! They are simple wooden spoons and a fork. I made them prettier using washi tape. There is no technique for it. I just wrapped around the handle. The one with the circle washi took a bit more effort. I did one piece at a time to keep each circle really lined up.
I tied them together with big blue ribbon from my stash. I think this came from a present I bought at the Gap years ago. I save stuff like that to use again. I cut the Daily Dish from a Daily Deck card. I thought it fit the theme perfectly! I gave the tag a special touch by adding the wood veneer heart.
It is really darling! I always enjoy spending time making things other than pages. There are so many ways to use your supplies!
