You need a last minute gift but forgot to buy gift bags. No worries, this easy gift bag looks just like store bought. For smaller surprises check out paper roll gift packages. 🙂 Also, check the sneak peek of gift package full of natural products with DIY packaging!
- old paper bag (from flour, sugar, salt)
- wrapping paper
- washi tape/invisible masking tape
Gift bags can be easily made at home, either from scratch (check this tutorial) or with an existing paper bag. Find some beautiful wrapping paper and washi tape and you’re good to go. 😀
Measure and cut wrapping paper.
First wrap upper part with glue. Then glue the bottom and cover edges with washi tape. For more sophisticated look use different wrapping paper and add some on the back of the bag.
