Box in a Bag

Today we have a super creative gift wrapping idea from one of the Club SEI open houses! We call it a box in a bag because you start by making a box for the bottom. Then wrap paper around it to create a bag.

This unique-shaped bag can be adapted to fit different sizes of gifts. Use embellishments to personalize it for anyone on your list.

1. Cut a 4 1/2” x 4 1/2” piece of paper
2. Score it as shown in the diagram above
3. Fold on the 1 inch score lines
4. Fold & adhere the corners in to make a box
5. Cut a 5 1/2” x 11” piece of paper
6. Place adhesive along the bottom & up one side of the back
7. Lay box along the bottom edge of the 5 1/2” x 10” piece (start half way on one side of the box)
8. Wrap the 5 1/2” x 10” piece around the box
9. Adhere the side to the other side
10. Cut a 11” x 1” piece of paper
11. Adhere it around the bag even with the bottom
12. Punch out 2 circles, fold them in half
13. Attach circles to the top of the bag & punch a hole through them
14. Fill your bag & tie it together with ribbon
15. Embellish as desired
