Using gift bags for presents is the "in" thing right now. It is so much easier than wrapping a present! But, have you ever been in a situation where you just can't find a bag? Sometimes I think that I have one at home that I can use and then I find out that I don't! Or, I don't want to pay $4 for ONE bag.
The solution? Make your own!
Go to Walmart and pick up a package of kraft or white lunch bag sacks (or if you want a larger size you can also get plain gift bags with a handle--white, kraft or multi-colored--in the craft department). They are very inexpensive and you usually get around 100 of them. Now, you can alter the bag however you would like and as long as you have a plain sack or bag around, you know that you will have something to put a gift in!
You could also stamp on the bottom of the bag if you wanted. You could make these bags for all kinds of themes--birthdays, graduation, Mother's & Father's Day, Baby Showers, Just Because, etc. And, your friends will appreciate them because you made it especially for them!
