Dress Me Up Doylies!




This is something you might want to consider doing and giving! i promise you they wont take much of your time (unless you do the bags yourselves).





These doylies are more than just doylies. they look too good to be underneath a cake, or some tart, or currypuffs. funny enough i dont store them in my kitchen, i store them in my craft boxes, in my craft room. you can find them everywhere, with different flowers, colours and lacy bits.


Never buy those flowey pattern gift bags. they look way too awful. if you're thinking of putting a gift in one of those bags, get a plain one instead and just paste those doylies to add that little feminine touch to it. here's what i did recently as gifts. did those tiny pink paper bags myself with my craft papers. make sure the bag has a base so that it could stand on its own. get those doylies and cut it according to the size of the top section of the bag and just fold it.


I did a tag and pasted a pressed flower sticker on them. write your personal note behind those tags but make sure use a ballpen coz those inks might get through the tag. clip them onto your bags with those cute little tiny wooden pegs.




So the next time you come across some doylies, store some of them near your ribbons and gift bags. oh! and they work on gift wrappers too!! arent they sweet?!
