Turn a paper bag into a "Gift Box" ~ #CraftyMommyMonday


It's Holiday time and you've run out of gift wrap. If you have a whole bunch of Paper bags from retail stores, then you're in luck! I'm here to teach you how to turn a Paper bag into a Gift box with 4 easy steps!

All you need is:
* Paper Bag (Any size depending on Gift)
* Scissors
* Tape (or Stapler)
* Gift Tags or Pen

1) Grab your paper bag and lay it flat (Plus if it has a cute Xmas design). Then cut off the handles along the dotted line.

2) Open up the bag and turn the side towards you. Cut two slits along the sides and stop half way. (Refer to photo) Repeat on other side.

3) Wrap gift in tissue paper or leave as is and place inside bag. Bring in both sides, overlap, and tape in the middle.

4) Bring in both the front and back of the paper bag to create a Tent-like structure. Tape it closed (or staple).

Write the recipient's name on the "Box" and Voila! You are all done. No need to buy gift wrap for those last 2 or 3 small/medium sized gifts. I'm all for reusing and this is one great idea!
