FRESH CRAFT: Make your own Gift bag!

Have you ever needed to wrap and give a gift ASAP and realized you were out of gift bags?

I was in that situation the other day and since the Baby was napping, couldn’t really just run to the store.

So I looked around to see what I did have.  I had tissue paper, ribbon and old brown shopping bags from the grocery store.
A light bulb went off and this is what I came up with.

Take a Brown Craft/Grocery Bag and cut in half (or to size wanted to bag). Fold down cut edge 1 inch.cameraphone103 179Fold Down another 1-2 inches to make a nice lip on the top of the bag.
