our creative space 'paper packaging passion' & GIVEAWAY

Greetings all,
Thanks for the enthusiasm about my new paper bags in the last post . . . or as my husband said "20 comments about paper bags, seriously??"  So to share the paper packaging passion with you, i'm offering up a giveaway.  Just a little one, but a goodie!!
EDIT: now a bigger giveaway with 5 runner up prizes, enjoy!!
How about some samples of the paper bags, twine & sticker sets i'm doing up for Shop Handmade & my market stall??  Do you fancy black, or the air mail collection??
 Personally i can't wait to throw the next children's party & send mummies off with a cookie in these 'frosting' bags, the party favour/ lolly bags will be amazingly cool too.
 The chevrons/ zig zags are super sweet too, but who can resist diagonal stripes or polka dots, not me that is for sure!!
 Anything cuter than a parcel sealed with baker's twine & a birdie sticker??
 I'll be taking these dozen Divine Twines into Shop tomorrow, in their cute crate.
So i've done up sets of large paper bags, the itty bitty paper bags, some with stickers, some with stickers & twine . . . it's lounge craft at it's best!! 
To enter the giveaway - just follow this blog & leave a comment here.  I'll throw together a big hamper of all the bags in all the sizes, lengths of each of the twines + some stickers too.  Open until Sunday 26th June at 9p.m., random selection, good luck!!  For the whole collection of styles & varieties, check out the previous post for some seriously giddy paper bag envy. 
Check out this week's Our Creative Spaces for more inspiration.  Love Posie
EDIT: i've switched in some new images & the main giveaway prize will be 15 bags, 12 stickers & 10 lengths of twine + now 5 runner up prizes of itty bitty bags too!!

I want them all! I am greedy like that when it comes to paper goodies.
My husband doesn't get it either. I once found some cute fruit themed paper bags at Kmart of all places and I bought the lot. I think it was 17 packets of 10 bags - so 170 bags! My husband thought I had gone mad but I *needed* those bags.

Thanks for the fab giveaway posie. How sweet of you to share the paper packaging love.

The Moerks said...

What a great giveaway - love stationery and packaging pretties. Those yellow and white bags are adorable. I'd love to enter and am a follower x

Alisa said...

So much prettiness in one place! What a fab giveaway, thank you. There is no way I could resist a yellow bird on yellow zigzags, no way! : )

ps. What is the divine twine like? Does it hold together well? I recently bought some red and white twine from Kikki K but it unravels really easily like embroidery thread.
