I'm going to start here and introduce you to Hobby Craft. The US has Michael's and many others.....The UK has HobbyCraft! Being from that side of the world, I missed having craft stores in abundance so when I found HobbyCraft, it was perfect. I could get everything I need, delivered right to my door!
There is alot of versatility in a plain white bag.....I think its a staple to have in the house as it fits a ton of situations. I don't know about you but I always seem to have a plethora of the wrong type of gift bag for my present. I really don't think an 8 year old boy would appreciate a princess gift bag...Plain white bag??? It's an allrounder.
HobbyCraft has a pack of 5 bags for £2.99. Buy 'em!! Keep them in your drawer, I guarantee you'll use them quicker than any other bag you have on hand...
Here are some really fun and cute ideas for your stash;
Tina Govic pinned this cute little Dad inspired gift bag
Aunt Peaches shows us how leftover paint and some stickers (and some fun kids) can make a gift bag masterpiece!
Me and My Insanity takes a bit of tulle and a name tag and makes a simple white bag a fabulous addition to a gorgeous pony party
Older and Wisor has an amazingly easy and cheap idea for oliday favour from favour boxes (Which I think can easily be changed to gift bags) what do you think??
V and Co has the cutest idea for an ombre paint spot bag. This tutorial is for a canvas bag (which I've pinned btw) but it would totally lend itself to paper gift bags...
These are just a few (Despite my "bait and switch move" of 101 ideas). Basically, what I'm trying to get across is that there is nothing these little bad boys can't do! You can personalize them into whatever you need, whenever you need. So, as I said, go and get yourself some for your stash!
