I am a big fan of Birthday celebrating. It’s the one time of year we can indulge in cake without feeling bad about it. It seem’s as we get older the celebrating of adult birthdays isn’t as exciting as when we were little.
As life continues to get busier and busier I have given myself a one month celebration rule when helping friends celebrate their special day. My goal is to get a card or small handmade gift in the mail as close to their birthday as possible, but If I fall short I give myself a little grace and put the one month rule into effect.
I’m not going to lie, this gift is falling into the one month rule, but I am excited to add a little DIY to the gift bag before sending it in the mail !!!
>>>> SUPPLIES NEEDED: 1. Canvas bag 2. Paint 3. Paint brush 4. cardboard >>>>>>>
This D.I.Y is SUPER easy, beginner level. First, insert a piece of cardboard inside the bag so the paint doesn’t soak into the back side. Grab your favorite color paint and paint stripes horizontal and and vertical on the bag . Wait and hour for it to dry and you are done.
Since the birthday girl loves the fair, Maggie Holmes new Carousal paper collection was a perfect fit for decorating the gift bag. Using a variety of papers and embellishments, I gathered together to create a layered gift tag topper.
In the middle of the papers I added in a typed gift tag with a special birthday message. One of my favorite products from the Carousal collection are the enamel pin stickers.
Here is to celebrating birthdays , even if it’s a month late !!!
