Virtual Open House preview - Burlap Bags

My Virtual Open House is coming soon. Starting September 1st on YouTube, I'll be sharing projects and products from the Close To My Heart Autumn/Winter Idea Book with you. It'll include the new Artbooking Cricut cartridge and what makes it unique, along with some helpful tips and ideas along the way. Stay tuned and I'll post it right here September 1.

Meanwhile, I'm working away on samples and ideas to share with you. And today I wanted to give you a little sneak peek at one of my new favorite items in the Idea Book: Burlap Drawstring Bags.

These little cuties come in a pack of three for only $4.95 and measure 5 3/4 " x 4". Plain burlap bags with pull strings to draw them closed tight. They are really fun to dress up with stamped images and embellishments. In my Virtual Open House video, I'll share tips on what types of glue to use, the best way to embellish, and things I learned while creating these.

Won't these be fun to put at your Thanksgiving table with a pretty napkin and silverware tucked inside?

Or as a little thank-you gift bag for someone special during the fall season?

A gift card fits inside perfectly.

So does candy or a special baked treat.

The ideas are endless!

Can't wait for the video and want to get your Burlap Bags now? Simply go here and order yours today. Or shop with your CTMH consultant.

More previews coming in the days ahead leading up to the Virtual Open House.

Thanks for popping in!
