(Sang in my best Barry White ) Autumn is in the air, I can feel it all around. Do you feel the autumn weather on its way where you are? Maybe you're in the West Coast sunny California and you aren't seeing the leaves fall. Either way, for me anytime is as good as any for organizing. Vintage Indie's contributing editor Elizabeth Ferdorko is here with a cute idea to use up your stash of gift bags.
Here are before and after photos of the clean out/organization project I tackled this weekend. I seriously needed to clean out my bookshelves in my studio space.
Once I did that I needed to find some containers that would fit on one particular shelf which would hold all of these vintage millinery flowers I have. I bought gift bags in different colors/patterns which represented the colors of the flowers inside, eg, the Halloween bag hold yellow and orange flowers. These gift bags could easily be used to store fabric scraps, paper scraps, or anything!
Elizabeth Holcombe Fedorko, aka Bethsbagz, began her checkered crafting career when at four she realized using paste on paper was better than eating it. Inspired by vintage dime store treasures, vintage fabric, and a no-fear attitude toward color, Beth crafts totes, pin cushions, wreaths, and corsages into her Dime Store Chic creations. Beth would love you to take a peek into her whimsical world at her blog.
