Vintage Style Easter Bag-skets

           It's an Easter bag-basket in one!

Sometimes you just want to change things up a bit in life. Well as far as Easter baskets go anyway.  

So instead of giving family and friends a "traditional" Easter basket, we thought we would use these heavy duty crafting bags and turn them into vintage style Easter bag-skets!

                      These are the items we used.

Crafting bags or gift bags. Burlap. Scrap booking embellishments. Hot glue.

     This is how we put them together.
                                    We glued the burlap onto the bag.

Than the trim onto the burlap.

And than the large embellishment.

We made three different bag-skets.

We can see these being used for may Day gifts too.

To personalize them a bit more, we stamped a little inspirational hang tag for each bag-sket.

    We shredded up a couple brown bags to use a filler.

               And added a little sweet something to the bag-skets.

   We really love the inspirational chocolate this time of year.

                         These make great Sunday school gifts too.

So if you are in the mood to switch up the old Easter basket this year, why not try your version of the Easter bag-sket?!

“Do not slander a servant to their master,
    or they will curse you, and you will pay for it.

Proverbs 30:10
