Guest Post ~ Kristen From Ella Claire

Welcome! Up for you today, I have a guest post from a new {to me} bloggy friend, Kristen from Ella Claire!  I only came across Kristen’s blog within the past few months and have been smitten by what she’s accomplished in her beautiful home, as well as her lovely little daughter. Now, for your reading pleasure, I present Kristen!

Hello, my name is Kristen and I blog over at Ella Claire. I am so excited to be here guest posting today! Thank you so much Kathy for having me.
I am so inspired by vintage charm, and a lot of what I share on my blog reflects that. I love to decorate, makeover furniture, throw parties, and anything DIY. Today, I thought I would share how I make little treat bags for parties!
First, gather some old book pages. Try to find some that are fairly sturdy. For mine, I used pages out of a vintage German dictionary I had on hand.
Next, fold your pages in half.
And then use your sewing machine to sew the edges. I used the outside of my foot for a guide. {please excuse my un-manicured fingers. I have been working in the yard :)}
Then fill with your treats. I used some clearance Easter candy I had on hand.
Super easy!
I think they add a little charm, don't you?
I also made some similar ones out of disposable placemats {here} to hold chips for my little one's shabby chic garden birthday party. They were super easy and fun.
Thank you, again, for letting me visit Kathy! :)


What a creative way to make treat bags for a party!  Please visit Kristen’s blog for some other wonderful ideas and to see her lovely home.  Thank you so much, Kristen!
