Easy Gift Bag from Club SEI

It's an extra special week on the blog! Each day we will feature a new gift wrapping idea. All of the ideas were inspired by Club SEI. So, at the end of the week we will be giving away a club kit. Don't miss it!

To kick things off, we are going to teach you how to make a basic gift bag, inspired by a past club kit project. Making your own gift bag can save you money. Use the concept in any size you want for a custom fit. Gift bags are perfect for odd-shaped items. All you need it two pieces of paper, some ribbon, and embellishments.

1. Score in 1 1/2” on the bottom & sides of (2) 12” x 12” pieces of paper (one for the front of the bag and one for the back)
2. Cut along one side of each of the 1 1/2” squares in the lower corners of each sheet (as shown in the diagram above)
3. Use decorative scissors along the top edge of each sheet
4. Nest the two halves inside one another to form a bag & secure with adhesive
5. Punch holes & thread ribbon to make a handle
6. Embellish as desired

Remember to check back for more gift wrapping ideas!
