nice things for nice people
Renegade Craft Fair was one of the highlights of my year, not least because I got to see so many of my favourite crafty/online friends in person, some for the first time ever! I didn't want to miss such an awesome opportunity, so I made up little Christmas goodie bags for them all to hand out on the day.
I used some white paper bags I already had, and decorated each one with some velvet ribbon, a vintage flash card, and a jingly bell.
I wanted some vintage style Christmas cards - I made these using a digital printable I bought on Etsy, which features high quality scans of real vintage Christmas cards. I printed them off small as I thought they looked cutest this way! I popped each one in an envelope, with a kraft luggage tag on the front with their name spelt out in alphabet stickers from Paperchase.
I made up little sweetie bags for each goodie bag too - rainbow drops, fizzy sweets, and chupa chup lollipops, all packaged in a black and white polka dot paper bag, finished with a peg and a handstamped gift tag. each bag also contained a laser cut wooden magnet featuring a motivational quote.
I loved making these up and I felt like Santa when I handed them out! I'm so lucky to know so many creative, inspiring people - I wish we all lived closer together so we could hang out more!
