Last week I was challenged by the people at wrap.me to make something cool using their gorgeous wrapping paper. I’m a big fan of theirs having used their paper before to cover a notebook and my kids are always super pleased when we get some of their paper through the door, nothing cheers a four year old up as much as the site of their own face in print! As the paper is ultimately designed for wrapping gifts I thought I’d do just that, but instead of just parcelling something up I thought I’d challenge myself to working out how to make a paper gift bag! After a couple of tries I realised it’s actually a lot simpler than it seems so I’ve made a little video so that you can make one too!
Hopefully the video will explain it all but if you do need any advice just drop me a comment below and I’ll do my best to answer it! I used a big roll of wrapping paper from wrap.me which is great if you want to make a load of these for birthday parties or wedding favours but if you only need to make a few then the size of paper I’ve used is six squares by three squares. It doesn’t sound much but it makes for a great sized gift bag!
