Ever find yourself in a pinch and searching for a gift bag? I have an easy peasy solution for you, and one that likely you have the supplies lying around the house for.
Sweet Treat Bags
- brown paper bag
- patterned paper
- coloured paper
Cut the top edge of your paper bag with fancy scissors, or create your own edging with regular scissors.
Stamp desired stamps with desired ink in a hap-hazard pattern on the front of the bag
Cut and glue patterned and/or solid paper on the bottom 1" to 3" of the bag
Fold over a 1 1/2" lip at the top
Using a standard hole punch, punch a hole through all four layers of the bag on the folded lip
Thread your ribbon though the hole and tie! If you have decorative punches and want to get fancy, punch a few shapes, layer them and glue them on the flap to cover where the hole is punched through the bag.
Viola! Pretty and simple...a sweet treat bag! A great craft for a kids' party, a rainy day or even for cookies to give to friends and family at Christmas time!
