You know I love all kinds of DIY crafts, especially when they also save me money. This tutorial about how to make a gift bag from wrapping paper is a perfect example. These DIY gift bags are so easy to make and I think are even cuter than store-bought options! I wish I could take credit for this idea, but I saw a video on Facebook around Christmas that I believe was posted by The Today Show (or another morning show–I can’t remember which one it was) demonstrating how to make a gift bag from wrapping paper. I was captivated and amazed. What a fabulous money saving trick? And I have tons of beautiful wrapping paper, while beautiful gift bags aren’t that easy to come by. So, for those of you that did not have the luck of seeing the video, I am going to share the tutorial with you.
