Hand Drawn Monogram Bags

Great packaging makes all the difference. These hand drawn monogram bags are super easy and work perfect for any kind of favor bag. We made them for a Valentine’s Day project but they would work perfect for a shower or party too. What I love about this is you can throw it together right before the party. No major planning involved.

Materials Needed: A printout of letters, Muslin Drawstring Bags, a Paint Pen
Step 1: Cut out the letters you will need,
Step 2: Place the letter inside the bag where you want to trace it.
Step 3: Trace along the lines to create a simple monogram. Et voila! You’re done.
Step 4: Fill with treats or cards for your guests.

    GORGEOUS! I have a bunch of muslin bags from my daughter’s dino birthday party last year (stenciled trex heads on them for favor bags) and now I have a pretty idea for using them. Thanks.
