Handmade Wedding Gift Bag


Josh & Elyse Gift Bag Oct14 (7)Hi friends!

Our trip to Brisbane last weekend was so we could attend my nephew’s wedding. It was a lovely wedding … very elegant and happy! It was great to catch up with my younger sister and her family.  We also spent a couple of nights with Gav’s sister and her family. With a 15 hour trip each way with 4 of our 5 kids (+ 2 hubbies) … it sure was a family filled weekend. What a blessing!

Josh & Elyse Gift Bag Oct14 (4)Josh & Elyse Gift Bag Oct14 (6)Our NSW family all put together to purchase an IKEA voucher for Josh & Elyse. Sheree had suggested this idea after she and Murray had received the voucher from Muz’s family at their wedding. They were thrilled … because they were able to set up their unit so nicely after they got married. I collected wedding cards from all those who contributed and made this pretty bag to hold all the cards and the gift voucher. The inspiration for this bag came from a card I had pinned on Pinterest and created by Annette Stewart. I used some gold and silver cord as the strings … on the original card these are hand drawn.

J&E Oct14 (1)I also created a tag with the names of all those who contributed on the back side. I did have fun creating this special event gift bag! You will remember I showed you the wedding card that I made for Josh and Elyse … a little while ago. It is always nice to play with something pretty. I am a little over male cards at the moment.

  1. Oh Andrea what a wonderful gift idea and a beautiful gift bag for all the cards. I am a saver of all handmade things as I feel each item has a part of the “maker” in it.
    You are so clever and sharing. Don’t know how I found you but am so happy I did.
    Hugs and smiles, Reva
