burlap and garden inspired products for spring celebrations and packaging

Spring products are in full bloom here at Creative Bag. 

Looking for a natural touch to add to your packaging projects? 
Then you will want to check out our new faux burlap bags and boxes.  Pepper, thyme, ginger and all spice are your colour choices for the burlap. It is possible to co-ordinate so many different colours with this burlap collection so pick your favourite colour (or colours) and have fun. 

Pictured above is the all spice striped bag with lavender tissue and lace ribbon. To add to the burlap theme I wrapped burlap around a glass container and tied it in place using more of the lace ribbon. I like to use our glass containers to display wood serving cones filled with goodies. 


Green burlap ribbon and pink striped cotton ribbon give a fresh spring vibe to our burlap cylinder boxes. 

I wrapped burlap and cotton ribbon around another glass container to use as a floral centrepiece. That cute little birdcage favor is from our wedding collection ...  I filled it with shredded book pages and a few blue candies that resembled robin's eggs. The kraft thank you tag/escort card  is available in our Toronto store only right now (it is one of my designs) but all of the stores have a variety of thank you and escort cards in the wedding section. I've shown you how to make a salad in a jar before - see my tutorial and recipe here. I added a wooden fork stamped with a letter or message to the jar and tied it all together using baker's twine .

We have a beautiful vintage garden themed collection that just arrived in our Toronto store. If you are planning a vintage garden themed party or decorating project you have to check this one out in person and I guarantee that it will not be available for long ... 





I adore the graphics on the containers. It's a beautiful mix of distressed vintage wallpaper and love letters. This collection reminds me of springtime in Paris -  très belle!
