Do you have any scrapbook paper that you don’t love? I know I do! One great thing you can do with it is turn it into gift bags!
I’m using the Scor Pal score boardtoday. I asked for it for Christmas one year. When the Martha Stewart onecame out and I was convinced I was missing out on something so I bought it. I wasn’t missing out. They are both good scoreboards but I really don’t need two. Live and learn. LOL!
Step One to Create the Bag: Score at 2-1/2″ around three sides of 12×12 paper and fold.
Step Two: Cut part of the fold lines at 2-1/2″ in and cut 2-1/2″ up, on both sides.
Step Three: Fold and glue the sides. I find that Zip Dry Paper glue works best for making bags.
Step Four: Make another bag piece just like the first one.
Step Five: Glue sides and base of one bag piece and place it inside the other.
Step Six: Punch holes in the top of the bag.
Step Seven: String the ribbon through the holes to create handles. Tie good knots so your handles stay in place!
I punched out a few tags from my scrap stash of paper and stamped them with “Oh Christmas Puns” and “Wintery Puns” stamps.
I think this is a great way to use unwanted scrapbook paper and save money on gift bags!
