Tutorial: How to Make a Gift Bag

Posted by Sofia

This whole project will take only about 10 minutes to assemble together. 

Choose two pages from scrapbook paper. Fold them on one side. That will be top of your bag.

Next, use any box as a mold and fold your paper one at a time around it. 

Just like wrapping a gift box. Glue or use a double-sided tape like i did. 

Pull out the box. 

and punch holes on top. 

Thread ribbons through the holes and maybe make a tag to go along. 


Make a few more to be ready for last minute gift bag needs:)

That is AWESOME! It looks like it would be a lot sturdier than some of the expensive bags you can buy...plus it would be one of a kind. I'm a new follower from MBC :)

Hi Sofia --

stopping by and following from MBC's Simply Follow!

Love this! Thanks for sharing the tutorial -- where did you find such pretty paper?


The Cake-at-Home Mom on July 22, 2010 at 12:07 PM said...

Love the tutorial! Visiting from MBC.


Sofia on July 22, 2010 at 3:31 PM said...

Sofia again! Well that used to be my main blog. It was only about my boys but I ran out of space...I can't upload any more photos so I stopped updating it.
I love to take photos but I am not a professional photographer! I really don't know that much besides the rule of the thirds or something like that.
I'm on my way to see your flickr account...
