Paper Bag Gift Holders


Got the perfect present for someone you love? Well, we have the perfect way to wrap it…in our adorable paper bag gift holders! The simple DIY craft uses those old school brown paper lunch bags I remember from my own childhood, but in a totally new way. Enjoy!


What you will need:

Brown paper lunch bags

Baker’s twine

Hang tags

Hole punch

Initial stamps

Ink pad



Step 1: Place gift or small items into the bottom of the bag.

Step 2: Starting roughly four inches up from the bottom, punch six holes along each side of the bag.


Step 3: Cut a three foot length of baker’s twine.


Step 4: Tie a knot at the end.


Step 5: Thread the twine back and forth through each set of holes, crossing in the middle as shown.


Step 6: Use an initial stamp to personalize a gift tag for each bag.


Step 7: Tie on with loose end of twine, then make a bow and cut off any excess.
