Make a Gift Bag From Leftover Wrapping Paper
Save that $5, and use your leftover wrapping paper to make a gift bag for those oddly-shaped gifts.
Create Bottom of Bag
Wrap paper around the gift until it meets the other side (Image 1). Fold two halves of paper into the center, and tape heavily up the seam (Image 2). Crease both sides of the paper. Fold the bottom up about 6-8 inches, and crease (Image 3). Create a diamond shape with the folded bottom by pushing in the center, and crease (Image 4). Fold top and bottom points into center, and tape (Image 5).
Place the gift inside (Image 1). Trim the top of the bag as needed. Fold top corners into the center to form a triangle (Image 2), then fold the top point of the triangle down. Secure with a piece of tape (Image 3), and add a bow (Image 4).
