Gift Bag (make sure it coordinates with wrapping paper)
1. Cut the patterned design out of wrapping paper, in the picture it was circles.
2. Tape the wrapping paper cutouts onto the bag, in the picutre there is a row of circles at the top and one in each of the bottom corners.
3. Cut out a rectangle of wrapping paper to make a tag for the bag. Tie on with ribbon or just tape it to the bag.
Tips: Cut out more circles and tape them onto wrapped packages for gift tags or just a nice 3D effect.
Go to the dollar store and buy your bags for cheap OR go to after holiday sales and stock up when wrapping gear is 75% - 90% off.
If you don't want to buy a bag, reuse one that was given to you earlier and decorate to match wrapped gifts. Or just decorate a previously used bag with paper scraps to create a "new" bag.
Thanks for the idea Aunt Deb!
