DIY Paper Gift Bag


DIY Paper Gift Bag

Presenting a gift in a gift bag is one of my favorite gift wrapping options. I love the flexibility of a gift bag as there are no awkward corners to try to fold wrapping paper around. I was inspired by this adorable springtime paper I found at my Daiso Dollar Store. If you haven't visited a Daiso yet, make a plan! Here's a Daiso store locator map where I noticed retail store concentration in larger metropolitan areas.

Daiso is a Japan-based value retailer that sells everything for around $1.50. A bit more than our traditional dollar store, but well worth the couple of extra quarters you'll shell out. I cannot tell you how fun and festive a visit to Daiso feels. Go and enjoy!

Here's what you need for your DIY Paper Gift Bag

  • Pretty paper - you can go small or big depending upon what you need to wrap. Just adjust your size based on the item. Make sure that the girth/width of your paper overlaps in the back so you have enough paper to tape/glue.
  • Scissors
  • Glue or clear tape
  • Hole punch
  • Ribbon
