Advent mail to Majella

On a Facebook page about snailmail, someone wanted to do an advent swap. Make 12 items and buy 12 items with a total worth of 10€. First I didn't want to join in, way to busy! But then I got so inspired that I've joined anyway. I got hooked up with Majella (who organised it by the way). And someone else would make me an advent calender. This is what I've made for Majella.

I had this idea to make something with brown bags and labels. It took a while before I've found a place where they would sell these bags to individuals, and when I found such a place I got sick and couldn't get to that place. Well, finally they arrived through mail since I really wanted them so much! Because the whole thing is in the same style, it's pleasant and calming to the eye and it creates a sense of uniformity.

I've made labels with stamps and round pieces of Kraft paper and I used a red tie around each bag. You're not supposed to peek! At Christmas time I'll post what I've made for Majella, had a lot of fun doing it anyway!
