by Ieva Čėsnaitė


  • Gift paper
  • Puncher
  • Tape
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Take a sheet of paper (the bigger paper, the bigger bag)

    Step 2

    Fold it

    Step 3

    Fold another side on top of the other

    Step 4

    Tape it

    Step 5

    Then fold the bottom (you have to measure your gift before you're making a bag, long story short - fold the paper in this step twice bigger than the actual size of the gift (you'll see why:) )

    Step 6

    Then fold the corner

    Step 7

    And another one

    Step 8

    Step 9

    Here you can see the real size of your bags bottom, as you can see it's twice smaller than in step 5

    Step 10

    This square should be in a perfect shape!

    Step 11

    Fold the side of the bag so the corners stick together

    Step 12

    And again with other side. You should have something like this

    Step 13

    Then fold it in the other side of the bag:)

    Step 14

    The lines should be very clear so you can use your nails

    Step 15

    Then put your arm in the bag and "make it real" :D

    Step 16

    The middle line on the side has to go inside the bag like this

    Step 17

    And another side

    Step 18

    If you want to use it another time just fold the bottom and put it somewhere safe:)

    Step 19

    If you want to use it now, put the gift inside, fold the top a couple of times like this

    Step 20

    Punch a hole

    Step 21

    And decorate it with ribbon. You're done!
