Paper Garlands and Gifting Bags

As I’ve mentioned before, my sister is getting married next year. Woo Hoo!

I’m still looking around for ideas I can send her way. As I love, love, love all things bunting related, I was really inspired by Frog Goose and Bears post on paper garlands, so I did a bit more digging around and found these garlands.

(I cant remember where the top image came from - eek! If you know let me know.

Aren’t they pretty! My sister loves music, so I was thinking that instead of using books we could use sheet music instead.

In other news, I decided to use the sewing paper idea to create some gifting bags. I don’t know about you but I love wrapping presents using brown paper and then adding a variety of bits and pieces to jazz it up a bit like this and this.

The thing is, I spend ages wrapping presents and needed a quick alternative. So… I created a few pouches.

(apologies for the colour balance on these pictures - its completely off - awful!)

They are perfect for small items and I can seal them up using my new fabric tape!

Ta da! Wrapping made easy!


  1. I love the paper garlands!! How cute! Can imagine them dangling in windows. Lovely stuff bean xx

  2. Glad you like them. I'll add them to the list of possibles! Looking forward to seeing the venue! x
