DIY Party Bags

This post was meant to go out on Friday, but I picked up a horrible case of food poisoning! So yesterday was not a fun day... bleugh. But today I am well enough to pick up the laptop, so here is another party themed DIY for you... 

For these fun handmade party bags you will need: 

- Clear greetings card sleeves (I get mine from Ebay for less than a pound). 

- Masking tape. 

- Spray Paint. 

- Some sweets, small gifts and little crafting supplies to fill the bags with. 

1// Mark out a pattern on each of the clear bags with masking tape, I made a striped one, a chevron one and a kind of splatter painted one. 

2// Use a spray paint to fill in the gaps. You could give it a good solid coat, or spray a bit more gently so that the coloured parts a still a bit transparent. Spray paint is a must because it would be difficult to get acrylics to stick. 

3// When the paint is dry, fill the bags with little party favours and secure with a piece of washi tape. 

Quite cute right? They are a bit of a play on the classic candy striped bag, which I love. Plus I think it's nice to be able to see the little presents inside! 

Now I just need a party to plan :)
