Hello We R fans! Chantalle here and I’d love to share a fun idea you can make for an outdoor event or a special BBQ, using the DIY Party Goodie Bag Guide and the beautiful Oh Goodie ombré glassine papers.
These glassine papers are so pretty and come in a pack of gorgeous patterns and soft ombré shades. It’s impossible to pick a favourite, so I chose to use all the colours in the pack! I love the translucency of the papers and thought they would work really well with a source of light, so I decided to create some goodie bag lanterns.
I wanted small lanterns so I chose to create with an 8x8inch size paper, which would create a bag of about 3.5 inches across. The Goodie Bag Guide comprises of four sections, which can be removed to suit the size of the finished bag. For my size, I worked with Section A, C & D combined.
Don’t forget to align your guide with the size of the paper you are working with and tear in stages, not all in one long pull, to avoid ripping the paper.
Once the bags were all prepared, I simply folded in the sides, applied runner tape to seal and folded up the bottom. So simple!
Next, for a bit of texture, I ran the bags through my Evolution Advanced with this cute Next Level ‘Woven’ embossing folder.
If you would like to use this method, please open the bag very carefully so as not to rip the delicate paper. I really love the woven effect!
Next, I popped a LED tealight candle into each bag.
The Oh Goodie collection comes with the cutest stickers, wooden pegs, starburst closures and decorative paperclips. I love these stickers and simply folded some over at intervals in between my lanterns along the length of my twine.
To keep my lanterns secure (but also allow me to open the bags to switch the lights off when not in use) I’ve secured each with a little paperclip and a starburst for an extra pop of colour.
My pretties all strung up…
Don’t they look lovely in the evening!
Wishing you lots of hours of fun with your Goodie Bags!
