DIY Gift Bag

These recycled gift bags are beyond fun and environmentally friendly because you use newspaper that you would otherwise throw in the trash. Follow the instructions below to make your own.

Fold along dashed lines. You can change the measurements to make whatever size gift bag you want. I would suggest doubling up on newspaper if you are putting heavy objects in it. 

After everything is folded, unfold and join sides A and B together.

Now it is time to fold the bottom of the bag. Fold like you would a Christmas present.

Cut out some cardboard to place on the bottom of the bag. 

The bottom will now look rigid.  

Time for some handles. I used twine that we already had in the shop.

What do you think?
