After buying a present, I often struggle a bit what bag I should put the gift in. I don’t want to spend an arm and a leg to buy a gift bag and yet my own inventory of nice shopping bags is getting scarce. What a pleasant surprise when I saw this DIY post (full instructions here) for gift bags from Ellinee, my favorite lady for DIY projects. The idea is to use:
- a scrapbook sheet for the gift bag (I can buy a bunch with different patterns)
- scotch tape
- hole punch
- 4 hole reinforcement labels
- some ribbons
- embellishment of gift tag (optional)
Her handicraft is simply charming, and better still, she always provides a free copy of her paper cuts or patterns to be downloaded whenever available. Love her Pinterest board too! Hope you will enjoy as much as I do.
