This tutorial is sweeping the nation! I’ve seen it on buzzfeed and so many other websites, blogs, and social media. Here is a really easy video we found that helps explain the process step by step. Making the gift bag out of wrapping paper is great for odd shaped gifts like basketballs and toys that do not come in boxes. It’s also great because gift bags can sometimes be expensive.

Materials needed:

  • Scissors
  • Scotch tape
  • Hole punch
  • Ribbon
  • Wrapping paper

First, you are going to roll out your wrapping paper and place your gift in the middle. Make sure you have enough to cover the whole gift. Then cut it in a rectangular shape. ¬†Place the paper face down and fold the right and left side to where they meet in the middle and overlap. Tape the sides together. Next you’ll fold the bottom to create the bottom of the bag. Separate the two pieces and flatten out the corners to create a diamond shape. Fold the top and bottom down towards the middle and tape them down. Go ahead and place your item in the bag then fold over the top of the bag and punch holes for the ribbons. Thread the ribbon through the holes and you are done!

We hope you enjoy your new and easy gift bags! Let The RED Team know what kinds of gifts you put in them or if you have other wrapping tips and tricks!
