This is for the Greatest Tip Edition of Works for Me Wednesdays, hosted by We Are THAT Family.
I don't know that this is my greatest tip ever... but my greatest tips are things like....
- Don't spend what you don't have.
- Make your own chicken stock.
- Homemade laundry detergent.
These are the sort of things that everyone does. I'm hoping while this isn't the greatest, it's at least different and sort of great.
I always struggle when sending a gift in the mail.
Do I wrap in cute paper and then wrap in brown paper?
That seems like so much extra packaging and sort of blah...
I took a large leftover gift bag from when Baby Girl was born (we have oodles of cute bags) and I cut off the bottom and the top edge with the handles. This left me with a large rectangular piece of bag. I folded the bag in half and used a zigzag stitch on my machine to sew up three sides, including the end that was folded in half.
I addressed the envelope while flat, put the gifts inside and then taped up the other end. If it wasn't too full I probably would have tried to sew the 4th side just to make it look cuter, but it worked out just fine.
To me this is a festive way to reuse old gift bags and send something fun in the mail!
