Who says it's boring to stuff your gift into a paper bag and give it to someone? Not if you make one from scratch!

My new video shows how to create a cute handmade paper bag from a sheet of paper and decorate it with paper plum blossom flowers. This is a perfect gift wrapping idea for small and odd-shaped gifts. 

Materials and Tools:

  • Decorative Paper (For making a paper bag) - Most gift wrap papers & decorative sheets are suitable for making a paper bag. It is a good idea to select the paper comparison to a gift you are stuffing in. for heavier gift, you might want to choose more durable and thicker paper.

  • Decorative Paper (For making plum blossom flowers) - Any decorative & art papers are suitable for making plum flowers. (Paper used in the video: Kyosei Momi Washi Paper from Celebrations Store)
