I did some searching on the Internet to look for a tutorial on making a
gift bag for a birthday gift. I came across this simple one from You
The first bag I did is the black and white one with the birthday logos. I used gift paper to make this bag. I did nothing really fancy with it I just taped the top shut. The original instructions in the video trims the top with scrap booking scissors and punch holes with a hole punch for the ribbon. I own neither.
So I made a second one just using 8 x 11 computer paper. I printed an image on the paper to decorate the bag. I hand cut spikes on top and crocheted the handles and taped them in the bag.
The one with the 8 x 11 paper is not very big, it is the good size for gift cards, jewelery, or any small item. If I ever do craft shows again, I may make up these cute gift bags.
