DIY: fabric bunting gift bag
I had a friend's birthday this weekend, and I wanted to jazz up the gift bag for her presents. I only had some plain brown paper bags available, so I decided to add some fabric bunting to the bag, using some scrap fabric and floral fabric tape. SO simple, cheap and easy to do, so I thought I'd share it here!
(This floral tape I picked up in a shop in Switzerland, but you can buy it on Etsy, and apparently Tiger are stocking some now too.)
Simply cut square flags from your fabric, or you could do triangle flags if you prefer.
Position your flags across the bottom of the bag, and then measure your tape strip to the width of the bag, ans stick down! simples!
Its a really adaptable idea, that could be used for Easter gift bags too, or you could put it around jam jars to spruce them up. Its a great way to use up those little bits of fabric you've got knocking around too!
