It is almost May and everyone knows that means Spring, the start of being outdoors more, and flower bed design. It also is the start of the gift giving season – Easter, Mother’s and Father’s day, graduations, and weddings.
To make giving a gift a bit easier, but still in eye-catching style I have come up with a few ideas on how you can easily “tweak” a plain gift-bag into something unique that will have the recipient squealing in delight – “for me ?”
You can buy plain white and colored shopping bags in bulk at craft stores like Michaels and AC Moore. They cost under $10 for a stack. I keep a bunch of white ones on hand as I can add anything to them without having to worry about an embellishment matching or not. For most of the ideas below you will need a hole punch, ribbons, beads, decorative paper, glue, brass fasteners, along with a few odds and ends.
Can you think of any other ways to decorate a gift bag?
