My 5 Favorite Things ~ Gift Bags!

I am sharing the gift bags that I made for my roomies for the Bloggy Conference that I attended over the weekend.  I will share more about the conference later this week, but I wanted to get this post out first.  I wanted to share this before the conference, but I did not want my bloggy friends to peek at the gifts I was making and bringing them!  We decided we would each pick 5 of our favorite things and bag them up to give to one another at the bloggy conference.

Here they are all bagged up and ready to give to the ladies.  I used gift bags that I had on hand and glammed it up for my bloggy friends.

I used the wood initial that I have in their gift bags and traced it to get the initial on the outside of the bag.  I used Mod Podge and glitter and glammed up the bag!

It is great to be able to take these plain and boring bags and use a little imagination, glitter, glue and tissue paper and you have a gift bag worth giving.

Here are the items I placed in the gift bags.    A craft project for each of them to do with their initial( item #1) and the glitter( item #2). Every blogger loves a simple craft project.  Glitter – what girl doesn’t like glitter. A glass of wine(item #3) to drink while you are making your craft project.  A packet of seeds(item #4) to plant in the flower clay pot for next year.  A tea bag(item #5) to drink tea as you are watching your flowers grow.  I threw in a bonus gift for them too!

I sponge painted the flower clay pots so they would have something to plant their seeds in.  The clay pots also go along with my theme on how I packed my business cards.  I will share how to sponge paint and use nail polish on clay flower pots next week.  This makes a great gift idea!
