Homemade Gift Bag

It’s easy to make your own gift bags using wrapping paper or even newspaper. This is great for Mother’s Day, Teacher Gifts, birthdays or any occasion. Make sure the gift is not so heavy that it tears the gift bag apart.


Wrapping paper or newspaper



Box for shape



Any kind of paper. Any box. Wrap like a present leaving one end open. Be sure to tape securely so the bag doesn't open when the present is inserted.

Slide box out.

Gift goes inside fold down the top.

Punch holes.

Lace ribbon thru holes.

Tie a bow
