Instructions

  1. Stamp your images all over the bag. I stamped on both the front and the back of the bag. Stamped Paper Bag Stamped Paper Bag
  2. Wrap your gifts and place them in the bag. Stamped Paper Bag
  3. Fold about an inch over toward the back of the bag. Stamped Paper Bag
  4. Use the hole punch to make two holes on either side through the part you just folded. This is going to help keep it closed. Stamped Paper Bag
  5. Now cut some ribbon. I don't know that the exact length matters. I made mine long enough to tie in a bow because I thought it would be easier to unwrap that way. But make them any length you want and you could tie them in a knot or bow. I used two shades of blue for this. The number of ribbons doesn't matter, either. (As long as you can fit them through the holes you punched!)
  6. Thread the two sets of ends through the holes. You want to make sure the side folded over is in the back. Stamped Paper Bag
  7. Tie your ribbons in a bow and you are all set to give this bag away! Stamped Paper Bag
  8. You can use more than just stamps on this bag. Add punches, embellishments, anything you can think of!
  9. Some of the stamps used are from Stampin' Up!
