In minutes these 3 kraft paper bags were upscaled into beautiful gift bags. Learn how to create all 3 easy DIY gift bags, from glitter gift bags, the duct tape bag or practice your calligraphy with a hand written message on a gift bag.

DIY GIFT BAGS: DUCT TAPE GIFT BAG

To create the bag you will need a roll of decorative duct tape or washi tape and decorative stickers. In this example gem stickers were used to match the sparkle found in the duct tape, but coloured dots stickers would also look amazing instead.

First place a strip of duct tape at the top and bottom of the bag on either side.

To complete the bag decorate the center of the bag with stick on gems on the front and back side of the bag.

Pour on glitter onto the glue, and tap away the excess glitter. Repeat spraying glue and pouring glue on the opposite side of the bag.diy gift bag

DIY GIFT BAGS: HAND WRITTEN GIFT BAG

Using a pencil sketch onto the bag your written message. On this bag I wrote “to you my love” but you can write anything you wish from a quote, lyrics or a funny message. The choice is yours.

After you have sketched the letter simply trace the words with a marker, for this bag a regular black Sharpie marker was used.

    These are super cute! I love doing things myself and I’ve been looking for a way to wrap some presents. This will come in handy this Christmas. Thanks for sharing Stephanie! 🙂
