Dressed Up Brown Paper Bags Tutorial DIY

Call me doily-obsessed. But they have so many applications for creativity. I love them. Check out how beautiful they look on a plain brown paper bag.  jenny doh
Just the plain lunch bags and paper doilies are what I used. Here's a quick tutorial on how to dye the doilies.

And then I used Mod Podge to adhere the doilies onto the bags.

Once dry, I did some white gel pen work on the bags ... just little touches are all you need.

And there you have it. A fun little tutorial that can help elevate the humble brown paper bag. It could become a gift bag. It could become part of a journal page, part of a collage ... oh ... you take it from there. And have fun.

Happy creating. :)
