Lucky Favor Bags: Freebie and Tutorial

With St. Patrick's Day around the corner, I wanted to send a little luck to my family. This is a simple project with sweet results. The lucky tags to be downloaded, printed, and used to embellish your St. Patrick's Day favors.

burlap(you bay substitute any fabrics you have on hand)
chocolate gold coins
twine, ribbon, or string
Lucky Gift Tags

sewing machine
hole punch

Step 1: To create burlap bags, cut a 4" by 10" rectangle of burlap.

Step 2: Fold burlap length wise. Iron and pin.

Step 3: Sew a 1/2" seam along each raw edge with any color thread. (I used green, of course, for St. Patrick's Day!) If you like, pull threads to create a frayed edge.

Step 4: Cut your printed Lucky Gift Tags along dotted lines and punch with hole punch.

Step 5: Fill each bag with chocolate coins, while carefully resisting the urge to eat all of them. Embellish with tag and tie close with twine. Now send a little luck to your family and friends!
