Quick Gift Bag

Gift bags are so much easier than wrapping presents, especially for Mr. L2D.  Here's a quick and easy way to create a sturdy gift bag. It's also a great way to recycle and use up the last little bit of wrapping paper.

Choose a cereal or cracker box that will fit your gift.  Trim the top to the size you want, completely cutting off the flaps.  Cover the box with wrapping paper, folding the paper over the top edge and securing on the inside with a glue stick or tape.  Use a hole punch to create holes for the handles, two on each side.  Tie coordinating ribbon, twine, or string through the holes to create the handles. 

Pretty neat, huh? Just open your pantry and see all the great shapes and sizes you can make your boxes. Tiny as a gelatin box or large as a cereal box.
