headbands. all of them.

I've mentioned it before, but Missouri Wines sponsored me and a couple other ladies and that's how I was able get to BlogHer this year. We had a fun wine gathering that we called the "Midwest is Best" party because it was exclusive to Midwestern gals.

Of course we had to put together a bag of goodies for everyone to take home! I helped procure some handmade items for the bags, and I made some headbands to add!


But really... 30. friggin. headbands. It took many, many hours {and a few burned fingers} to make them all.


I pretty much fell in love with my packaging. I used the cardboard backing from a pad of paper, a star hole-punch, small safety pins, and my Moo stickers to make the tags. I pinned those onto the headband. Then I used chocolate covered pretzel bags to contain the headband and a business card, and I sealed them up with some washi tape.

If you got one of my headbands from the Midwest is Best swag bags, please let me know how you like them! I'm going to post about the other handmade goodies soon!

What do you think about the headbands? Should I add them to the shop?

  4. NEEEEED ONE! Now I just can't decide on color. I LOVE the packaging - I can't wait until I get the time to fire back up my art stuff so I can get better at my packaging.

    1. I picked up the bags at Michael's. They are actually for chocolate dipped pretzel rods! You'll find them in the food/baking section. :)

  11. Not sure of the name, but I think they were Wilton brand? Not sure of the size - it's been SO long! I'm sure Michael's still carries them though.
