    Considering the amount of bags I could use them for a variety of things. The first that comes to mind is using them to pack homemade potpurri and soap in for Chrsitmas presents. I would probably decorate them a little for the holiday using chunky jingle bells and plastic craft christmas lights. For Halloween I would fill them with candy and toys and decorate them to match the season. I bet I could even make pumpkin bread to wrap and put in the bags.

    What would I make with those adorable muslin bags? I would probably paint them up in pretty ways and offer them as little gift bags when I sell my jewelry. Maybe makes some little potpourri sachets to stick in my closet. Organize my own jewelry box a little better, by putting some of my better pieces in a couple. Use them as gift bags around Christmas. The possibilities are quite endless.

    Wow! There are as many ways to use these adorable bags as there are bags in the giveaway! Here are a few of my ideas:

    –I’d stamp some with Claudine’s garden stamps and tuck a few seed packets in them as a little treat for a gardening friend.

    –I love embellishing circle tags punched out of cardstock and would package several in a bag, for a small “Thinking of You” gift.

    –I have two little granddaughters and the bags would be ideal for storing Barbie shoes, game pieces, Little People, etc.

    –They would also be great for presenting or storing handmade hair clippies or pony-o’s.

    –I would embellish several bags with vintage lace. ribbon, buttons, and other trims and use them as gift bags–or give a set of three or four as a gift all by itself.
