I don’t know about you, but I have spent a lot of money on gift bags and when I discovered this tutorial, I was so excited!
With the holidays just around the corner, I am super excited to show you how to make a DIY gift bag. This is the perfect way to wrap oddly shaped items.
I was so happy I came across this! It’s such a great way to save money and I have tons of beautiful wrapping paper, while beautiful gift bags aren’t that easy to come by. So, for those of you that did not have the luck of seeing the video, I’m attaching it to this post.
Sometimes before a party, you can find me scurrying around our house in a tizzy because I forgot to buy wrapping supplies for a gift that I’m supposed to be taking with me! I’m not always that forgetful, but when I am, being able to quickly whip up a pretty little gift bag sure is a relief. If I have a little extra time, I’ll make a few gift bags at once, so that next time I’ll be sure to have one or two at the ready.
Sometimes you just don’t have a nice box to use when wrapping a present, or maybe you just want to give the gift inside of a specially handmade bag, but regardless of your reasons, knowing how to make a professional looking gift bag is a great skill to have. These bags can be fashioned out of any patterned wrapping paper you have around, or you can paint kraft paper as she’s done here.
Watch how she makes these clever gift bags in this step by step tutorial!
