In my wedding recap, I showed you the jewelry I got my bridesmaids. You may have noticed in the background, the little burlap sacks I packaged them in. I wanted to add a little handmade and unique touch to their gifts and also personalize them in some way. So today I thought I would show you how I made the diy burlap sack gift packaging.
This tutorial is by no means rocket science, and in fact, it’s pretty easy and straight forward. But, I was proud of my little creations.
For supplies, all you need are stamps, an ink pad and burlap sacks.
A long time ago I bought these little drawstring burlap sacks from Pick Your Plum. At the time, I didn’t have a particular use or need for them, but the price was really good, and I figured at some point, I could use them for party favors, etsy packaging, or something along those lines. They sat and sat in my craft box, probably for a good year and a half, until one day, while doing some wedding crafting, they finally were put to use.
I found the stamps in the dollar bin at Michael’s and scoured for the first initials of all my bridal party.
I don’t have an in progress shot, figured it’s pretty straight forward, but literally you just stamp the initial on each bag.
I bought all the girl’s jewelry at Kohl’s. The jewelry was all on sale plus I think the lady gave me an additional discount because she knew I was buying it for my wedding.
I went with very simple and neutral jewelry. I loved the girls’ dresses and wanted those to stand out more than the jewelry they wore. Plus, I didn’t want to get anything that they couldn’t wear again if they wanted to.
Instead of making gift tags for their gifts, I ended up tying the burlap sacks with their initials to the bag to act like a gift tag.
Super easy, but I thought it added a cute handmade touch.
What do you think? If you are married and got your bridesmaids gifts, how did you package them?
