Stenciled Burlap Bags

We are right smack dab in the middle of moving right now. {yeah, LOADS of fun, let me tell you. ha! Especially when the movers no show….thank heavens for awesome friends!}  The boys wanted to give a couple of their friends a going away present. So I made these adorable Stenciled Burlap Bags using my Silhouette Portrait, reusable Silhouette Adhesive Stencil Material, and small burlap bags I found in the dollar section at one of my fave stores.

stenciled burlap treat bags. Super cute and easy to make! Fun gift idea. They were super simple and easy to make! The boys picked an airplane design {of course!} and we slipped in a chocolate bar and added a simple gift tag.

I don’t know if you’ve used Silhouette’s new Stencil Material, but its seriously so cool! You can create a stencil with any design you’d like and cut it out. And the best part is, the stencil material is reusable. Umm, brilliant! I cut one airplane stencil, painted it on with one color of paint and then washed it off with a damp cloth. Then I used the stencil with another color. So easy and I love that I can reuse the custom stencils I make. Previously I used vinyl for my stencils and I had to make a vinyl stencil for each item I wanted to stencil. So I love that this new Stencil Material cuts down the waste and cost.

    What a really great way to dress up a burlap bag. This is a great idea for little hands too. They can make valentine’s or whatever their theme is. Thanks for sharing!
