  12. This is too funny, guess what we’re going to be making soon…the exact same thing. Great minds think alike! We’re having my friends over on Palm Sunday and I wanted something cute for the little girl’s table settings and when I looked at mini baskets they all seemed so expensive. Then I got my issue of CL and thought, BINGO!

  13. I first time see this crafts.I can’t imagine this type of creativity.you made such a adorable crafts.

  14. Great idea, why not use different color shreds to make the nest too?

  15. i really like this idea ~ well done !

  16. I love love this project! THANKS SO MUCH! I have a bridal shower to do using a bird/nest/vintage theme and this is perfect for treats on the table! I also love the natural “feel” of the paper bags plus it’s recycling which I adore.
