Wrapping Paper Gift Bag/Box

box made out of wrapping paper

I was shopping at the grocery store the other day, and saw some American Greeting Wrapping Paper that I absolutely loved. I thought it would make a really cute gift bag,  and I am very happy with the results

Paper crafts can be made with almost any kind of paper, as long as there is some imagination thrown in. Wrapping paper is kind of flimsy, so to add stability, use adhesive spray to attach the wrapping paper to a 12 x 12 sheet of card stock.

These gift bags are quick and easy to make and can be easily personalized to fit any occasion. Give your friends a gift that is special and made from your heart. They will love it.

Paper Cake Slice with lid

I thought it would be a good idea to offer a second paper cake slice template with a top lid. The original template closes in the back, and sometimes it is easier to fill from above i.e you may actually want to put a slice of real cake in the favor box, and it would be possible with this paper cake box template.
