INSTRUCTIONS

There are 3 sizes of gift bags on this page just keep scrolling down to find them.

To save the printable to your computer, hold your mouse over the printable and right click, then select 'save picture as'. Choose the highest setting on your printer.
Spray your printable with a matte spray sealer so that the ink won't run when you glue the printie. I have used different sprays over the years, and have found that they all do the job. You can purchase the sprays at most hobby shops or paint stores.

Making the Gift Boxes and Gift Bags

First of all, of course, you have to print your gift bags. Use the highest setting on you printer. Let your printie dry for a few minutes, then spray it with a matte sealer. This seals the printie so that the inks won't run when you apply the glue.

I use card stock for almost all my printables. I know some people prefer to use thinner paper. When you cut out the printable leave the white parts on, you will want to snip some of them off when you glue the box/bag together.

You need to score the folds of the box/bag so that when it is made the corners will be nice and straight. It is a little bit easier to glue the handles on the bag before it is assembled.

Emboidery thread makes a good string handle, or you can use a little strip of paper, see diagram below. After the gift bags are made up, pinch the sides of the bags and the top to make a little pleat. Tucking some tissue paper in the bags and adding a bow to the boxes adds to the realism. Have fun mini-ers!

Wrapping plays a part

Gift giving is a part of almost any celebration and almost as old as celebration traditions themselves.

While early ties may have been for practical purposes it’s now a shiny, brightly colored ribbon that adds to the gaiety of the occasion.

By embellishing gifts with paper and ornaments we hope to send a message that expresses a special show of friendship.

Bows and Trimmings

The extra trimmings on the gift bags and boxes make all the difference. Here are a couple of links where you can learn from the experts.

Learn from Cynthia Howe how to make a large bow

Cynthia Howe Miniatures.

I came across a hint on the internet a few years ago, which suggested using unravelled bunka as decoration on gifts. It makes a very effective bow, but I can't take credit for the idea.
If you are the person who posted the clever 'bunka bow' idea, please let me know so that I can add a link to your website.
I can't find bunka in my area, but it dawned on me one day, that I can buy tassels at the dollar store. The tassels are made from bunka.

I have found that it is not difficult to cut or tear the 'real size 'curling ribbon into thin strips. I tie a few ribbons together with thin wire. The little fabric roses, that you can find at the dollar stores, look nice on top of a gift box. I was lucky find the foil bows, shown in the picture, at the dollar store.
I love the dollar store :- )
