Craft paper bags

I love craft paper! You can use it for many projects and a roll will last for quite a long time!
A while ago I was looking for nice small bags for my home-made lip balms but I didn't want to spend a fortune by going to a craft shop (even if I would have loved to! ahahaah).
I love the fancy, tiny, colourful and perfectly sized bags you can find for example in Confetti stores (in UK) or Loisirs et creation (in France) but they are pretty expensive...
I remember I found a video (link to the video) on Youtube showing how to gift wrap very small items by only using wrapping paper, double sided adhesive tape and scissors.
I gave it a try myself with crafting paper and here you can see the result! Nice and simple, isn't it?

Recipe (slow moving trace):
Olive oil (pomace) 70% Coconut oil 22.25% Palm oil (organic) 7.75%
Note that the palm oil I buy from The Soap Kitchen 'carries Organic Certification and comes from Columbia. It is not produced on land that has been taken from the Rain Forests, nor are there any Orangutangs made homeless. Our suppliers do use 'ethical' methods in their production (we have actually visited the site). Our Columbian suppliers are members of the RSPO (Round Table for Sustainable Production ofPalmOil).'
