Need a last minute gift bag idea this summer or maybe you just don’t want to spend $5.00 on a gift bag. I usually keep a stack of plain white paper gift bags. You can get them at any craft store, usually in sets of 10 for 5.00. If you use a michael’s coupon it is even cheaper.
I was putting a gift together last minute this week and realized I did not have an appropriate gift bag to package it. I remembered a bulletin board at my son’s preschool full of flip flops and thought I would recreate it on a bag.
I was pretty pleased and my daughter suggested I put two on the next one!!
All you need is colored paper, ribbon scraps and glue and in about 10 minutes you have an adorable gift bag.
If you need a visual just grab your own flip flop for reference!.
Simply cut out a flip flop shape out of the paper, the size will depend on if you are using two flip flops or just one large one. Mine was about 6 inches.
Punch out 3 holes, one on the left side, middle top and right side.
Measure the distance between the top and side hole and cut a piece a ribbon 2 1/2 times that.
Fold the ribbon in half, if printed right sides together. Place the folded end into the top hole slightly and then unfold the ribbon into the other wholes.
Trim the excess ribbon and tape to secure the ribbon.
Just glue onto your bag, I used school glue but you can use a glue gun too.
Add the gift and some matching tissue paper and the gift bag is a gift in itself.
