You can attach decorative pendants to the strings of the bags or attach to ready-tied bags using a brooch or badge.

Enhancing material bags with stickers and applications

Fabric bags can easily be decorated by simply gluing your chosen decorative elements to them.  It can be fun to involve the children with this, who might find using traditional stickers, or self-adhesive jewels easier.  This gives you the creative freedom to design your own unique pictures, or inscriptions on the bags!  A hot glue gun can be handy if you are looking to attach larger items made of plywood, felt or even small figurines made from modeling clay.  DIY decorative packaging will make the great first impression you are looking for as well as giving your loved one a unique keepsake of the occasion.
