I have been so thankful to some people who have really blessed us in the first few weeks of arriving in Canada. I wanted to show them just a smidge of my appreciation. Not having all my usual arty supplies with me yet, I used what I had in my hand, which was a box of Lego and the basic craft supplies I jammed in my suitcase. I bought a roll of white textured wrapping paper from Michael's, and printed some printables to finish them off.
I love that they can be made in any size you like, and filled with anything!

Crease the edges while the paper is still wrapped around the lego block. It will make it easier to fold the sides together and the bottom up.
I used a 1" punch to finish them off.
You could go with the Washi tape and use it for decorating too, however I had some printables on hand of a new design that will be in the shop soon. Voila!
You can then go ahead and make them in any size you like!

  2. Thanks Emma! Lego is always lying just have to grab it before you step on it! :)

  3. Adorable bag!! I am new to your blog and am enjoying your beautiful images - so much inspiration!!
    I hope you're starting to feel more settled in Canada - I am from Canada (Toronto) and moved to the US 7 years ago. Moves are always hard, but also gloriously refreshing.

    Have a great day!
