Flowery Treat Bags

I made these little flowery treat bags for last week’s project for Wild Orchid Crafts, you can watch the video here.

There is also a giveaway for these 2 projects, but you need to leave a comment over at my youtube channel to be eligible to enter.

The first flowery treat bag is filled with flowers only and the second one is filled with flowers, lace and seam binding..

You could use them for halloween treat bags too, just fill them with sweeties or an apple and monkey nuts to hand out to the kids that come along trick or treating 🙂

Hope you find these wee projects helpful and can use the ideas 🙂
