Wedding Welcome Bags

Our last DIY wedding chore....the welcome bags.  This task was on my list from the beginning but not one that I placed as a high priority - if we found the time, great...if not, no big deal.  But after I saw how cute they were, I was so glad we decided to do them.  I can not take credit for the idea, I found it on craft section several weeks ago. 

I didn't want to do "gift bags" or canvas bags so I searched ideas for something more vintage.  Lo and behold - the traditional paper lunch bag to the rescue.  Here they are in my assembly line...
 And take a peek inside....water, chips, Hersheys minis, sweet and salty bar, and Lance crackers.  We made enough so they hotel can give one per person instead of one per room.  We purchased all the snacks at Sams.
 Now to make it cute.  We went to Michaels and purchased ivory scalloped scrapbook paper and pink ribbon. The only other tools needed are scissors and a single hole punch.  
 We cut the paper to look like a scrap of lace and used the ribbon to adhere it to the bag.
 And a whole group of them (in the tacky frito-lay box that we are are trying to re-purpose as a tray).  
I love the way they turned out.  I was able to keep my theme without a lot of extra expense.  A win-win for us and for our guests!
