For gift wrap in a snap, there are some great ideas here.
In this fast paced world, we frequently don’t have time to spend making ornate gift wraps.
Below you will find some really speedy ideas, many of which can use recycled paper bags if you choose to.
Quick and Easy Bags
For quick and easy gift bags, buy red and green lunch size bags. Fill, fold down, and hold shut with a clothespin – which also holds the gift tag. It doesn’t get much easier!
Brown Bag Wrap
Decorate a brown paper bag with old Christmas card cut-outs, Christmas tree sprigs and ribbon and you have an old-fashioned brown bag wrap.
Stitched Gift Bag
Scroll down for directions for 2 minute stitched gift bag of muslin or burlap. These homey gift bags are reusable and can be tied shut with string or twine.
Fast Package Wrap
Use any size gusseted paper bag for a fast package wrap. Fold the top down 2 or 3 inches and punch two holes close to each other near the center. Thread yarn, ribbon, or twine through the holes and tie.
Add a gift tag before making a bow or tying the final knot.You can buy colorful holiday lunch size bags for around 25 cents during the season.
No-Sew, No-Tape, No-Glue Paper Lunch Sack Wrap
I love this idea for a quick wrap using a lunch sack or recycling paper, without needing any tape or glue to hold it closed! And it’s fast!
