High Tea Party!


When my girlfriends come over for lunch, I like to treat them to something special. The next time we get together, it will be for a High Tea, and they will each leave with a goodie bag. The Juliet collection was the perfect choice for my project. Warm and elegant with a bit of sweetness.

High Tea Gift Bags

I started with a plain small bag that I found in the party section of my local craft store. I adhered a piece of patterned paper from the 6x6 paper pad over the front of the bag, then added a strip of die-cut from the Elegant Border down the middle, then  added a journaling card and popped it up a bit with some pop dots. After I wrapped the cookies in a clear cellophane bag, I tied it with ribbon and added the tag that I punched from Nostalgia paper and topped with a button. I then tucked the cookies into the bag.

 I added a small doily over the flap, then added die cut rosettes in the middle.I topped the middle of the rosette with a jewel, then tied a ribbon over the flap to keep the bag shut.

 For a special touch, I removed  the tea bags from their original wrapper and created my own wrapper from the patterned paper. I just traced the original wrapper onto my patterned paper and cut it out and followed the fold lines.  I topped it with an Elegant Border die cut and added the hang tag to the tea bag itself. I just tucked the tea bag into it's new sleeve.

 I really enjoyed creating these gift bags. With so many beautiful and fun BoBunny collections, I hope you are inspired to create your own. They were super easy to put together.
