DIY Gift Bags

Since Christmas is AGAIN just around the corner, here is a great idea to start with.

You will need:

– paper (Any kind of paper will do)
– scissors
– glue

Fold down one side of the paper about .5″.
kJZqW
x2PoD
Fold the bottom side inward about 2″, then unfold.
PCMyz
Turn your paper counter-clockwise, then fold inward toward the side with the .5″ fold. Then unfold.
XzveN

21UHx
Turn your paper counter clockwise so the bottom fold is back at the bottom. Fold the left and right sides inward toward your middle crease, so you now have four even folds.
oQgrm
Glue the edge of the paper opposite the side with the .5″ fold.
uNfSM
Re-fold that bottom 2″ fold so you have a nice, firm crease. I ran this one along the edge of a desk. Then unfold so you have a square tube.
OUJV6
Pinch the ends shut. It should bend easily where you made your 2″ crease.
RcyMF
Fold down, glue where necessary. Turn the bag upright and press the bottom flat from the inside to make sure the bottom lays flat.
qqcGy
This can be finished in one of two ways. I prefer to fold the inside rim down and make handles, but you can also fold the top down and tie it shut. You’re done!

Ric Rac Rose Ring

Ric-Rac-Rose-Tutorial
– Supplies –

Ric Rac
Hot Glue
Accessory to attach it to

According the tutorial we need two pieces of ric rac at 21 inches. The longer and wider the ric rac is, the taller the flower will be.
1105
Now “braid” the two pieces of Ric Rac together.
1123
Take the end and curl the Ric Rac in.
1133
Continue rolling the Ric Rac. You can put a little hot glue on the sides as you are rolling it.
1142

1152

1173
When you like the size of your rose, you can stop rolling. Put a little glue where you want to end the Ric Rac. Now put some glue on the under side of the rose.
1193
Bring the Ric Rac under the rose and adhere it to the glue. If you have some excess Ric Rac, this is where you will cut it off. Then glue the tails securely under the rose.
1219
To make some petals coming out, pull the edges of the Ric Rac down. Keep pulling the Ric Rac edges down until you like how it looks.
1265
Now you can glue it on a hairpin, a ring-base or a pendant base – whatever you think would look great with a rose on it. 🙂
