Another decorated paper bag...


Since July this year,  I've been obsessed with making sweet treats from scratch. Really. :)

Free time is spent looking at recipes online, reading through the reviews, buying the ingredients and testing them out on weekends. 

So far, I've made pancakes, panna cotta, brownies, bundt cakes, banana bread, chocolate chip cookies, cheesecake, marble cake and madeleines. The Gangster Gang [aka nephews + niece] have been instrumental in giving know... by devouring everything I make in a flash. *LOL*

Of course, the next step would be to share [split the calories..haha] the sweet treats I make with others...and packaging them in something pretty - like a decorated paper bag. *winks*

These are super easy to make and can be stored away flat until you need to use them.

A piece of patterned paper, some pretties from Maya Road and the help of a hot glue gun....and I'm all done!

P/s: Do you have any fave recipes to share with me?

Sigh, this is stunning, Yvonne! I am a sucker for good gift packaging, and this, my friend, is making me swoon! And how fun to hear you are delving into the world of baking! One of our favorite cookie recipes is Monster Cookies, originally by Paula Dean, I believe. They have just about everything in them.... oatmeal, peanut butter, chocolate chips, nuts, M&Ms, dried fruit... anything and everything you could want, and more! ;)

You've combined my two favorite things: paper crafting and baking (eating) sweets! I'm trying to do more of one and less of the other though... ;)

I now know we have a lot in common. I also love to decorate plain bags and fill them with my baked goods. Your bag is gorgeous and I'm sure your pastries are just as delicious. Reading and seeing your blog always makes me smile and gives me creative thoughts.
