Project Details

  • Level:beginner
  • Time:about 90 minutes

Project Instructions

  • 1
    Cut two 6"” x 10"” pieces of fabric. Cut two 10”" pieces and one 6”" piece of the iron-on adhesive.
  • 2
    Hold the two pieces of fabric together and slide the adhesive strips in-between, leaving one side open. Position the fabric together at the side and bottom. With a hot iron on medium temperature, iron the sides and bottom to seal the bag together.
  • 3
    Fold the open edge down ¾”" and iron. Then, fold the bag to the side and iron the entire bag.
  • 4
    Fill with potpourri. Tie three strands of baker'’s twine around the bag, 2”" down from top. Break a 6”" cinnamon stick in half and glue both to the center of the twine bow. Finish tying the bow on top of the cinnamon sticks.
  • 5
    Replace the string on the chalkboard tags with the baker's twine and tie onto the twine wrapped around bag. Use the wire cutters to cut off pieces of pine roping and berry garland (or other flower picks) to embellish the bags. Add a message to the tags with the chalk marker.
