brown kraft paper crafts

i finished my last craft projects for the {utah} blogger meet ‘n greet yesterday afternoon and right now our family is en route to utah! in fact, i am posting this from 30,000 feet. wi-fi on airplanes is genius, people. kudos (and kisses!) to whoever figured that out.

all of these projects below are easy do-it-yourself goodies. take a look –

bless my oldest two daughters, they were a huge help this past week in making it possible for me to manage life + conquer my craft-to-do’s! we made {mostly myna’s work} a couple dozen of my yarn-wrapped kraft bags + added these new martha stewart chalkboard labels. i plan on writing names + a lil thank you on those chalkboard labels. what do you think? i’m dying over these labels & can’t wait to use them for more future projects! {look what rita did!}

for some homemade smaller packaging we cut-out 6 inch x 6 inch squares of brown kraft paper. using a variety of stitches, we sewed little bags together and adorned some of them with doilies. we made all the bags a little different. miss thirteen learned a lot about the different stitches her machine can do with this project, it was great practice.

right above:

i cut-out brown kraft card stock circles, in three sizes and two different shades of paper.  using a 1/8″ hole punch i punched two holes in the middle of all the circles, then threaded those little circles with gold string. ta-da! it was so easy, and such a quick way to make garland!

last, i had these little chalkboards from pottery barn as place cards, i cut off the raffia that was tied on them, and re-attached long white yarn to create name tag necklaces for the sponsors on wednesday evening. if you want to create something similar, i found these on etsy, that would work.
