How to Make a Gift Bag out of Wrapping Paper

There are two primary ways of getting a gift bag. For instance, you can decide to buy one from any of those local stores. Although this method is less stressful, bear in mind that its impact is minimal. The reason is quite simple as such gift bags must have been used by others in the past. This means it lacks uniqueness and originality. The other method is creating one on your own. This method can have the most impact on your loved ones since it is always very unique. Pouted lifestyle magazine tells you how it is easy to make a gift bag out of wrapping paper. This doesn’t require any particular skill. However, it can enable you to leave an indelible impression on a loved one. The impact that it creates is unique and unforgettable. Of course, one of the easiest ways to get this done is using wrapping paper.

Here is the perfect solution

This post shows you how to make a bag out of wrapping the paper, which can be presented as gifts to someone special. This idea is perfect for birthdays, weddings or any other gifts.  Just read the details below to get started.

Materials that are needed

Please note that some materials will be required. These are:

  • Scissors
  • Hole Puncher
  • Tape
  • Ribbon
  • Wrapping paper

In case you can’t get a hole puncher and ribbon, there is no need to bother since they are only optional on the list. However, ensure the other items are available to make this process successful.

Step 1

The first thing to do is determine the measurement of such a gift (especially width). This is because such knowledge will enable you to understand the size of paper to use. Once you have found out the exact width of such gift item, the wrapping paper should be folded in half. Now, have its bottom sealed upwards using tape. Simply put, fold the bottom of the paper, and seal it with tape. Another way to go about this process is laying the paper flat and using it to wrap your gift. In the picture below, you will notice that the paper has been taped in the middle. That is exactly how to seal a paper in the middle.

The only thing to always remember is that your gift has to fit in perfectly. In other words, it shouldn’t be too tight or loose. It should be based on the measurement you must have taken above.

Here is how you can fold the paper

To do this smoothly, you can follow the photos. This will help ensure you get it right.

Can you see how the bottom has been folded? That is how your own has to be. The reason for this is that you want the base of the gift paper to be solid. This is to avoid a situation whereby such a gift item would fall out from the bottom due to too much weight.

The next thing you will need to do is having both flaps folded and taped together. Given how the bottom of your gift paper has been designed, you can rest assured that your item is fully secured. Just ensure you have used a tape that holds both flaps firmly without any compromise.

Important note

When folding the flaps’ top and bottom, ensure that they both meet at the middle. Once you have done the above, your bag is now ready to be used. All you have to do is have your gift put inside. For better impact, it is recommended that you make use of a ribbon. In case you can’t seem to find a ribbon, using a rope will prove helpful. You can see how the gift bags have been prepared for presentation in the photo below for better understanding. It is all about thinking outside the box.

Another way to do this is using a paper that contains the favorite item someone likes. For instance, you have a loved one who is celebrating a birthday and would like to present a special gift to him or her. Avoid using an ordinary paper in such a case. Instead, make use of a paper containing what that person loves. It can be cars, basketball, video game designs, fashion, or something else. Just be creative to make the gift special.

After creating the bag, put your gift inside of it. Now, have the bag tied using a rope or ribbon. This is to give it added value.
