Lunch Bag Turned Coffee Gift Bag with SEI
I was looking at the front the SEI banner kit and saw this great idea for turning a simple paper lunch bag into a gift bag. It was not only genius and frugal, it was something I needed. I have had a bag of coffee that I’ve been meaning to give as a gift and I couldn’t decide how I wanted to wrap it. This was perfect!
I simply used a white lunch bag from my kitchen and cut a piece of Catalina Sweet Calico paper to 4-1/4″ x 9″ and glued it to the front using my ATG gun.
Next, fold over the top of the bag and tape it over the paper. I punched a hole at the top of each side of the bag with my Crop-a-dile. I threaded twine through the bag and attached a piece of banner cardboard from the banner kit.
I heat embossed a Joy’s Life coffee stamp and saying from “Tag You’re It Two” stamp set using a tag from SEI’s Field Notes Sundries.
I left the excess embossing powder on the tag to give it a smudgy coffee ground look. Also, I couldn’t get it all off. LOL!
Next, I colored the stamps in with 3D glossy pens by Sakura. (Like those stamps? Check them all out here!)
I finished the project by adding two small flowers from Pembroke Sundries just over the holes I punched. I clipped the tag to the twine using a tiny clothespin from Pembroke Sundries.
Consider using paper scraps and other embellishments to make your bag uniquely yours.
