In the name of all things frugal, I decided to purchase white bags for my students for their Christmas (although we're not really allowed to call it that--that's what it is for ME;)) party.
|Plain, white bags from Michaels, I believe--I planned to just add snowflake stickers to dress them up. They can be bought in sets of five or six depending on where you go. They also come bigger or smaller, depending on your needs.|
Yesterday, I accidentally came up with an idea while gathering everything I've purchased this year along with what was left over from last year. I already had my spray paint out for something I was working on for my first Premier Jewelry Show and somehow the idea emerged!
So, though it's probably going to seem obvious, I am writing a tutorial. Simply because it might not be obvious and also because I've never done a tutorial before. ;) I had some extra snowflake ornaments left over from last year:
|Stick the ornament to the bag. You really don't need to press it too tightly as these dots have staying power and could rip the bag while pulling it off (TRUST). ;)|
|Torn bag example. ;)|
|Gently pull the ornament off and this is what you have. What's nice is you could also gift or decorate with your newly painted ornaments, too! WOOT! :)|
|I bought these small glittery/bling-y stickers for the bags (one package of 25 for around $4 however WITH a coupon I got it 1/2 off--YAY).|
