Bag it up
There’s no fun paying for packaging – make your own instead.
IT’S the gift-giving season, and here’s a DIY project that is bound to save you a few extra ringgit on packaging – homemade paper gift bags, inspired by a tutorial on Hellosandwich.blogspot.com.
Big or small, make them any way you like and customise accordingly to the gift or the person you are giving the present to. Pick out vintage polka dot wrappers or recycle old ones (with the right touch- es, the crumpled look can work wonders).
To make the bags a tad stronger to house heavier items, try gluing on a piece of stock cards on the bottom of the bag. Complete the look with a handmade gift tag or decorate them with doilies for added kitsch. Happy gift-giving!
Pick me up: make your own paper gift bags with wrapping paper and twine.
