Wrapping Paper Gift Bag/Box

I was shopping at the grocery store the other day and saw some American Greeting Wrapping Paper that I loved. I thought it would make an adorable gift bag,  and I am pleased with the results

Paper crafts can be done with almost any kind of paper, as long as there is some imagination thrown in. Wrapping paper is kind of flimsy, so to add stability, use adhesive spray to attach the wrapping paper to a 12 x 12 sheet of card stock.

These gift bags are quick and easy to make and can be easily personalized to fit any occasion. Give your friends a gift that is special and made from your heart. They will love it.
