Do you hang on to shopping bags? Of course, we all do with the intention of using them again. In the process of cleaning today I found a handful of bags that were used for candles and are still in perfect condition. Why not reuse them and include some marketing for my Mom’s Vintage shop in Galena, IL at the same time? I’m not against promoting the candles, but why not promote the shop I work at?
It’s a simple tutorial with a lot of possibilities. I went through my scrap drawer and pulled out some pieces of paper. Grabbed a couple pair of decorative edge scissors. Use your imagination with rubber stamps. Have you ever checked out Moo.com? They offer a good price for stickers. Have your business logo made into a sticker and place on the bags. I could go on and on with ideas. Attach your handmade tag using glue, double face tape, staples, etc.
I had a coupon to use up on a photo order so I decided to utilize this method. It gave me an excuse to experiment with some fonts. I can get lost in the world of fonts. This route did save me time due to the amount of bags that I had on hand.
Don’t forget about the back of the bag.
I’ll be working in the shop tomorrow, so the bags will be going with me.
Until the next word…
