How to make gift bags? Cut a piece of cellophane measuring 12 inches wide (30.5cm wide) by 9 inches high (22.9 cm high)
Fold the bottom of the cellophane and machine stitch 1/2 inch (0.6 cm)
Fold the cellophane in half leaving 1/2 inch (0.6 cm) from the edge. This is so you can fold the cellophane on the right side over and sew to give a neat finish.
Then, sew 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 cupcakes and tie it with a bow.
