DIY: centerpiece or favor? u-pick.

Sweet.  And simple.  And inexpensive.  And springy and summery.  Lots of great things all rolled up into these precious little brown bags.  And yes, I am already looking ahead toward spring and summer.  Winter schminter.  I'm over it.

Use this easy little project as centerpieces along your tables, or even favors for your guests to take home with them.  You can fill them with your favorite fruit - cherries, strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries - take your pick.  And how great would it be if you brought a crew along with you to do your own u-pick berries at your local farm?  I'm in love.  With berries.  And local farms. 

Mini Brown Bags (found at your local craft store)
Tissue Paper (if desired)
Card Stock
Square Scalloped Hole Punch (found at your local craft store)
Color Printer

1. Using your color printer, print out whatever you'd like to be on the front of your bags.  A cute motif?  Your monogram?  Your names?  Your wedding date? 
2. Using your hole punch, punch out the squares.
3. With double stick tape, adhere the labels on to your brown bags, right in the center.
4. If you don’t want to fill your bags completely with fruit, stuff the bottom half of the bags with tissue paper, then fill to the brim with your berries.

Springtime, can you come any sooner?  I have craft projects to make.
