Embellishing Burlap Bags

An overlooked item in our Close to my Heart idea book are the burlap bags.  These can be used for treats, invitations, or small gifts to a neighbor, teacher, or co-worker.  Carly is back to show us how simple it is to dress these bags up.

I know, the upside down visual was an oopsie!  But did you see how nice the bags can look?!  Carly mentioned our alcohol markers, but you can also use our pigment ink too (and that's a great choice for stamping directly onto the burlap).

Made from Scratch (C1582) found on page 45 of the Spring/Summer 2014 idea book would be a great selection to stamp directly onto the burlap.

I know you were thinking, "invitations?!" when you read the opening statement.  How cute would it be if you're having a BBQ themed party or family reunion to use the bags as an invitation?   You could stamp Fancy Fair (B1440) - page 44 - onto the bag and include the invite with some bandana inside the bag.  Better yet, accent the bag with the Jubilee Textiles (Z1971) (as shown on page 45). 

Oh, my brain is starting to hurt from the possibilities!
