Create Your Own Gift Bag

Keep in mind the size of the items you wish to use. The size of the bag might change but the method stays the same. 



How to Make Gift Bags:


To make this gift bag,cut a piece of cellophane measuring 12 inches wide (30.5cm wide) by 9 inches high (22.9 cm high)




I folded the bottom of the cellophane and machine stitch 1/2 inch  (0.6 cm)



I folded the cellophane in half leaving 1/2 inch (0.6 cm) from the edge. This is so I could fold the cellophane on the right side over and sew to give a neat finish. 

I sewed down the side and along the bottom.



This is my end result. A gift bag perfect for any birthday party and it was made in minutes. 

All I need now is to fill it with birthday cup-cakes
