The designer paper I used on the bag above is from our Pattern Party paper pack, which is full of designs that are fun and bright on one side, and black and white on the other side. I am in love with them! They are a host exclusive, which you can get for hosting a Facebook party with me or by ordering $150 yourself or between you and a few friends.

What can you fill these bags with? I created three different assortments for a recent craft fair. They included:

Little Girls

My little girl tote bags included a notebook, sticker book, cute hand sanitizer, and fuzzy headband.
