Brown paper bag bows

A good friend got married last week.  We had a couple of things to contribute to the new household… but when I started wrapping things, I realized that I didn’t have enough wrapping paper to go around.  One set of things came in a plain paper bag, and I wanted to visually tie all three things together.

Google time…

I think I may be the only person on the planet that would think it kosher to wrap up wedding gifts in recycled Trader Joe’s bags.

I found a post on how to make these here.

I’m so thankful that other, more craft-y people than me, take the time to post these things.  If I’d have had to go into town to get more wrapping paper, it would have been a 45-minute round trip!

I am a farm-raised homeschooling mom. I take great joy in making nutritious food that inspires people to take seconds. Thirds, anyone? We are a God-fearing, Christ worshiping family that enjoys good friends and good eats. If the kitchen is clean and the living room carpet is visible, then that's a nice bonus.
