I almost never buy gift bags. They’re just never something I ever pick up unless I need a filler at Walgreens. So because of that, they’re just not something I have in the house in case I need one. It’s easy enough to just make your own holiday gift bags, though.
All you need it wrapping paper, tape, and a box of some sort. Oh, I guess I can say that you need wrapping paper skills, although a lack of wrapping paper skills is probably why you want to put something in a gift bag in the first place.
What You’ll Need:
- Wrapping paper
- Box (I used a box of Mueller’s pasta)
What You’ll Do:
Cut a piece of wrapping paper large enough to wrap the box.
Wrap it just as you would a present, taping the ends and back.
Don’t close one end. Use that to slide the box out.
Make sure the creases are tight.
That’s it. You’re done. So super easy and it works great in a pinch. Wrapping paper that’s a little thicker will work better than a thinner paper, so if you have a few rolls to choose from, be sure to pick the thickest.
