Baby Girl Ward was born recently (view pics of the cutie here!), so while I’m out trying to raise her proper, I’ve asked some amazeballs bloggers to visit! Today’s post comes from one of my best bloggy friends, Kelly from Studio DIY! There aren’t enough words to tell you how much I love this girl. She’s crazy fun and just got engaged last week! Hooray for her! Now look what she made for y’all!
Hello Proper Pinwheel-ers!! Kelly of Studio DIY here. I’ve been so darn excited about this new little babe’s arrival, and I’m also pretty excited to be guest posting here while Lexy spends some quality time with her new family of three! (Eeee!!) Now, if I lived near Lexy, I would have headed right over with a bag of sweet treats to congratulate her, but since I don’t, I’m sending them to her virtually with this DIY… bow treat bags! I have a thing for bows, and Lexy has a thing for sweets (Ok, so do I.), so it’s a pretty good combo if you ask me. Perfect for little gifts, party favors or just because you like someone an extra lot one day. Here we go!
- Treat Bags
- Crepe Paper
- Glue Dots
- Treats (Macarons were my sweet of choice here.)
Cut a small rectangle out of your crepe paper. Pinch the center of your rectangle together (you could do an accordion fold too, if you find that easier!) to form a bow shape.
Take a small strip of crepe and wrap it around the center where you pinched, securing it with a glue dot. Then fill up your bags with treats, and use another glue dot to adhere the bow to the bag, and close it up! Tada! Alternatively, you can roll down the tops of your treat bags and put the bow on the fold, great for passing out party snacks!
That’s really it. Simple is where it’s at, folks. Now if I only I could find a way to make Los Angeles and Denver closer together so I could bring some of these to the Wards!
Congratulations Lexy, hoping you’re eating up every moment of this new chapter in your life!!
