I love giving gifts… but what I love more is gift WRAPPING! Is it just me? And I don’t just wrap the gift with colorful wrapping paper and call it a day. Oh no. Wrapping a gift is an arts and crafts project that usually takes me a few hours. I know! It’s crazy. But I love it.
The one thing I don’t like about gift giving are gift BAGS. Yes, gift bags have come a long way, but I feel like I didn’t put any effort in the presentation of my gift when I use a gift bag. Don’t get me wrong, there have been many occasions when I’ve used gift bags. Mostly, I use gift bags when I purchase a gift with awkward packaging, ie. not a box.
I recently went to a baby shower and the gift I got came in that awkward, plastic packaging that is impossible to open. So, a gift bag seemed appropriate. However, I had major plans for this gift bag.
I began with this tutorial from The Elli Blog. You can find the complete how-to guide and template here. Below is a summary of how I did it.
