DIY Holiday Gift Bag

I love packaging, an occupational hazard you might say.  I work on a team to create packaging for beauty products at Shobha. So I know the hours it takes to create & approve even the smallest details that go into the packages that you carry home with you in a shopping bag.  Shopping bags follow the same suit as packaging & is probably why I tend to hoard the 'good ones' & hate to just toss them.

This holiday season I repurposed a shopping bag from Anthropologie (you know a 'good one') for my secret santa at the office.  It was pretty quick & the results were pretty cute.

What you'll need:
  • a 'good shopping' bag, one that isn't too well loved
  • wrapping paper scraps
  • scissors
  • clear tape (or glue or modpodge)

Make it!
  1. Cut a shape out of the wrapping paper.  Cut the shape into strips.
  2. Lay the shopping bag on a flat surface.
  3. Lay the strips out, evenly spaced on the bag in the desired position.
  4. Seal the strips in place by covering them with clear tape, or use glue or modpodge.
  5. That's it! Wrap your gift in tissue & tie a gift tag on the bag & you're ready to gift!
