Simple steps to make a gift bag: Today's video tutorial is a good one and I daresay I'm getting a bit better at these!! I'm starting in on Christmas preparation with these adorable gift bags! Handmade, inexpensive and easy...why pay alot for something that you can make better? These are not hard, nor do they take alot of time to make. I used copy paper for most of these, or some left over paper from other projects. I think making a gift bag out of the Sunday comics would just be so charming, don't you!! So, try your hand at making a gift bag. See what you think! And, if you love the idea of making your own gift wrapping materials you'll love my gift tag ideas, sugar cookie gift tags, and how to make a gift card holder from a cardboard tube (otherwise known as a TP roll)!
