The bag can either be sewn, if you are expert at it, or made from a simple round of paper or material gathered up around the shells and tied with a bow. You can sprinkle something glittery in with the shells, add tiny dried rose petals and buds, or very tiny seed shells. What ever inspires your whimsy. The giving of such a gift, if you wish to give it, should be to someone whose heart is open to wonder, whether that's a child or an adult. If you like, try your hand at a little fairy tale to go along with it.
