Very practical, and a fun way to be creative. From time to time I have obtained some very pretty bags that are not the typical brown bag, and I have saved them to use as wrapping paper, but now I can also use them for these clever ornaments! Would even work for some old Marshal Field bags for a touch of nostalgia! Also, these would work nicely on lower tree branches for no breakage for pets and kids, or even on a mantle or table runner! It would also look great as a heart shape, and embellish with beads or ribbon!

This is a very basic, but pretty idea. I have a friend who moved into their log cabin style home and everything has a rustic look to it. I think she would love having ornaments like these on their first Christmas tree there. I know they will fit right in. Now I just need the time to make them up for her.


Hi Carnahun, You can cut the flowers out by hand or use a die cutting machine for more precise shapes. Thanks!

Very pretty.
