How to Use Cellophane Gift Bags
Below is an Easter gift basket that I have made for Easter to show you how easy it is to wrap
your own homemade gift basket ideas into ready-made cellophane bags.
For this gift basket I've used a large ready-made cellophane gift
bag; it has small spring flowers printed on it, ideal for an Easter gift basket. This method is the same for any sized gift basket using cellophane bags.
Just choose the right size gift bag for your gift basket and follow these easy step-by-step instructions below.
Things you will Need:
Your basket with your chosen items nicely placed inside.
One ready-made cellophane gift bag.
Thin adhesive tape, floral wire or twist ties.
Clear wide adhesive tape, the one used for packing parcels.
This Easter gift basket is lined with one packet of green shredded paper. On top I
put a small fluffy bunny and a few small chocolate Easter Eggs. This Easter gift basket is ready to be wrapped up in the cellophane gift basket bag.
For the right size bag I measured the base and the height of the
basket (especially if it has a handle).
I placed the basket in the center
of my cellophane bag.
Next I took the thin adhesive tape, or one of the above, and cut a long piece, enough to wrap around the bunched up cellophane two or three times.
Put to one side for now.
I gathered all the cellophane into a bunch in one hand as in
the picture, then I pulled from the top with the other hand making it tight.
basket has a handle, make sure this sits on top. If it has no handle make
sure it sits on top of the items.
Then I took the thin tape that I cut earlier or floral wire, wrapped it around the cellophane as tight as possible.
After it's secured, it should not flop (this might take a while). If it does flop, start again.
I am left with cellophane sticking out from both sides of my basket.
Neatly fold the cellophane vertically down the basket.
I took the clear wide tape and taped it from the side to the underneath of the basket, so it's not visible.
With scissors I cut the excess cellophane at the top. Do not cut it too short, leave about 10 inches. Now my basket is ready for a bow!
You can use any color ribbon you like. I thought yellow would be nice for this Easter gift basket.
