Making gift wrap bags is easy and fun.
You can recycle a bag by covering the store logo with a design, greeting card, or piece of wrapping paper.
You can reuse a box such as a cereal or cracker box by cutting off the top end. Cover the box in attractive paper and add some handles.
Or wrap a piece of gift paper around a box the size of the bag you need, leaving one end open for the top. Gently slip the box out, fold the top edge down a couple of inches, and attach twine or ribbon handles.
Try some of these ideas for gift wrap bags.
