I have spent way too many hours on Pinterest ogling various DIY crafts. I am obsessed with everything from mason jar candles to newspaper lanterns. Sadly, I seem to spend way more time whipping egg whites than pasting construction paper...
However, here is a craft that even I could complete. A homemade gift bag. I am always shocked at how much they charge for one of those special sparkly gift bags at the store -- $3.99 for something I get at Nordstroms for free?! This is a quick and easy way to make your own super-cute gift bag from wrapping paper and an old shopping bag. It's cheap. It's eco-friendly. It's so easy. Check out the tutorial here. I am never buying a gift bag again!
Wrapping paper: Container Store -- Recycled Strawberry Wrap
Handles: Cut from the bag they gave me at Container store.
Tag: Dad's manila folder
Decorations: Funky paper reinforcements and sharpies
