Chic Gift Bag Tutorial

With the holidays fast approaching you may find the need to a quick, chic, gift to give a friend! These are made from simple items you probably already have! Just a couple punches, a little glue, ink and a favorite rubber stamp and voila! A pretty package anyone would love to receive!

Here are the supplies you will need:

A simple lunch bag, a border punch, ink, rubber stamp, clothes pin and hot glue gun

Start by punching the open end of the brown lunch bag.

Border punches are great because they have a guide. Simply line up what you just punched with the printed design right on the punch and punch again. Repeat until entire top is punched.

Next, fold the top over. You can choose how far you fold this based on the size of the goodies you will be putting inside.

Now stamp the bag with your favorite stamp(s) to add some character. Stamp a little, or a lot. It's up to you.

For the closure, I chose to use a clothes pin that I adorned with a little bling. First I cut strips of a book page and hot glued that on. Then topped it off with a strip of bling. You can get creative here and glue vintage jewelry, buttons, etc on there for a different look.

There you have it! Now fill your bag with a candle, candy, baked decide! Quick, easy and oh so chic! Your friends are going to be impressed!
