hello cello!


Who loves to dress up their peeps for Easter?

I do. I do!

I love coming home with a few pre-Easter goodies for decorations.

Doesn't that bag smell soooo good!


So you get home and  lay out your goods and all you see is boxes.

Just how in the world do you make it cute?

((The  $5.00 wire basket is from Wal mart a few years back but I think they still sell them.))


Adding a little ribbon can do wonders!


I just weaved it in and out...


And finished it off with a simple bow.


Now this is where my love for cellophane runs deep.

You know those lil party bags in the party section?

Yes! love em~


For my peeps I cut the end so it would be open on both ends.


I then added a little bow to each end.


How simple! How sweet!

Now you can show them off and they won't go stale on ya.


I didn't stop there.

I cello'ed everything ;)


Making nest with grass and eggs... hello cello!


I love to use the paper grass.

It's much easier to clean up after and cuter too!


Something as simple as cellophane bag

can turn your basket

from ordinary

to extraordinary!


 
                                     I'm always looking for new ways to use these clear bags whenever I can.
       
                                                                            Love em!




How do you use them?



Now this is the kinda mess

I like to clean up :)

  4. Those bags are darling! AND I think it makes it less likely that I'd reach my hands in the candy bowl for a piece....ya know, don't want to mess up the ribbons and arrangement. :)

  7. I'm with you. I love cello bags and use them often the same way you do. Love the basket with all the goodies. I might have to make a trip to Wal Mart to see if I can find the cute wire basket.

  15. I use those bags for the organic dog treats I make and sell. I tied them with some ribbon that has little,black paw prints on it. I really like how you used them in that wire basket! I think a trip to Wal-mart is in my near future thanks.
