As you all know, I love gift wrapping. And, nothing makes me happier than all the gifts under our tree having a uniform theme. Which is easy when everything is in a rectangle box. But, what do you do when you have oddly shaped gifts that it just isn’t feasible to put in a box? Well that’s where these homemade gift bags come in! These gift bags are made from your wrapping paper so they will match your other gifts. And, they are so easy! You can use your wrapping paper scraps even to make them!
You will need a wrapping paper scrap, tape, scissors if you need to cut down your bag to size, and any embellishments you want to add. That’s it!
How to make Gift Bags out of Wrapping Paper
First flip over your wrapping paper scrap so the wrong side is facing you.
Fold over the east and west sides, overlapping slightly in the middle, and secure with tape.
Fold up the bottom, then fold in the sides of the bottom.
Fold the top and bottom in, overlapping slightly, and secure with tape.
Secure the long seam with any other tape as needed.
Open your wrapping paper gift bag and stuff with goodies!
Fold over top, and secure with tape.
Embellish as desired.
Presto! Easy peasy gift bags made out of wrapping paper!
