Homemade Gift Bags

Gift bagIt seems like everyone uses gift bags these days instead of wrapping paper. We still us wrapping paper for our kid’s gifts, but I do tend to buy gift bags for everyone else… it just seems easier!

But this year, I’m going to try something different… I found a box full of large manila envelopes in my closet and I knew there had to be some way to make these into gift bags. I did some searching and ta da!!! I found it over at Pages of the Heart! She lists the directions and pictures on how to take a plain manila envelope and turn it into a gift bag! How cool is that?

I think this is one thing the girls and I will be working on this weekend… buy some red paint, use some of the stickers I have from scrapbooking and I’m sure we can come up with some very unique and creative gift bags! This picture looks like they were made for Valentine’s Day but they could be made for any holiday or celebration!

Give it a try and let me know how yours turns out!

    Due to my job I have access to lots of extra envelopes from greeting cards. So this project is so easy & fun to adapt to any size envelope-you can even make mini bags from small envelopes.
