DIY favour inspiration using linen drawstring bags

diy favours using fabric bags | Creative Bag

Drawstring bags are a great option for favour packaging and they are available in many different sizes and fabrications.

These linen bags are like blank canvases just waiting for you to make them your own. 

Here's nine DIY ideas to get you started:

One. Silk Flowers and Decorative Brads. This silk flower was pulled apart and put back together again using a decorative rhinestone brad. The brad was also used to attach the silk flower to the bag.

Two. Stamp and Paint. Stamp a design using permanent ink. I added a colour detail to this stamped image using a little paint and a puffy gloss sealer.

Three. Buttons. Use purchased buttons or pins. Make your own chalkboard button by spraying old buttons with chalkboard paint. Add hand lettered details using chalkboard markers.

Four. Glitter Paint. Add a heart using gold glitter paint. Use a stencil if you are making a lot of these.

Five. Rhinestone Buckles and Ribbon. Sew on the buckle and add a colour of pop with ribbon.

Six. Fabric Petals and Buttons. Layer different colours and textures of fabric for a bit of whimsy.

Seven. Hand Lettering and a Resin Pin. Use a fine tip permanent marker to hand letter words or a name. The resin flower pin and felt leaf were added for a pop of colour.

Eight. Iron On Transfer. Create your own or search Pinterest for designs to download and use as art for iron on transfers.

Nine. Dye and Buttons. Use food colouring and water to create your own fabric dye. Create an ombre look on the bags by adding more dye to achieve the look. Sew on a button to hold a gift tag.

Our bags and boxes come in a number of different sizes and colours and you can find all of the details on our website

If you are ordering cookies to use as favours for a party, we suggest that you talk to your cookie baker about what kind of favour packaging you want to use.

Clear bags and boxes are one of our most popular ways to package cookies.
Here's some of our most popular clear packaging options:

If you are packaging cookies as favours, you may not want clear packaging so be sure to check out our selection of paper and fabric bags. Our paper notion bags come in a variety of different colours, patterns and sizes. Fabric bags are available in cotton, linen, burlap/jute, muslin, lace and organza. Many of these bags are not food safe so you will want to place your cookies inside of a clear food safe bag first.

Our scallop window bakery box is a great option for cookies. At 4" x 4" x 2.5", it fits most cookies and it's available in white and kraft. Dress up these boxes with ribbon or baker's twine to make these your own.

Want to spend an afternoon with one of our favourite local bloggers? Melissa DiRenzo the creative genius behind The Sweet Escape is hosting a DIY Valentine watercolour cookie workshop in her studio on Saturday February 11th, 2017.
