Burlap Bags Giveaway

****This giveaway is now CLOSED. Winners announced here. Thanks to everyone who entered!

When OFS Lisa (who can be spotted in this OnlineFabricstore Vine video) comes across things in our huge warehouse that may be discontinued or that we received in error, to avoid just wasting/dumping them, she drops by my office to see if there’s some use I can get out of them with a DIY project or a giveaway for you guys. So these large rustic burlap coffee bags have been on “the pile” for quite a few weeks now.

See the word at the bottom of the bag? “Volcanes?” Spanish for volcano. Can I tell you what that reminds me of? It reminds me of when I was newly “with child” for the first time and my husband was on a business trip in Amsterdam. And Iceland decided that was a good time to have one of its volcanoes erupt. Ok, well, not erupt per se. But spew an ash cloud that grounded flights across Europe creating a backlog of stranded travelers for days. I feel for the people who had big events ruined because of that. But at that time, in my first trimester of my first pregnancy, all I wanted was my husband to be home and not riding on buses and trains though several countries trying to find another route home.

So I’m not sure I really want or need these volcano bags in my office reminding me of that any longer, and would like to offer them along with some smaller 12 x 14 jute gift bags up for a giveaway. I’ll pick three winners next Wednesday, who will receive one large burlap coffee bag and three gift bags each. If you’re interested in getting one of these packets, just leave a comment below. Tell us what you’d use them for or share a funny story about when you or someone you loved was stranded! And if you’re on Google + or Pinterest please head over and follow us! Not required for entry of course, but surely appreciated.
