Little Handbag Gift Boxes

Picture 005
I feel that this is really a bit of a cheat as there is no real crafting in this project, it’s just a matter of putting things together, to make a quick gift, using things I have already got.

The bags are wedding favor boxes from HobbyCraft, they cost £1.99 for ten, which I think is a bargain.  They come in different colours, I have two sets; brown and cream and black and white, I think they also do them in pastel pink and blue

The stickers are from The Poundshop, they have a metallic finish and come in very useful when I need an odd sticker or two, and the ribbons are just remnants, usually I would match them up very carefully, but this time the random approach has worked.

In each bag I have put four of the Asda chocolate hearts (£1.00 for 10) my sister found me last week. 
I reckon each bag has cost me no more than 35p to make (including for stickers and ribbon)  – bargain!
With Mother’s Day coming up this is a nice little idea for school fayres etc.
