I have to admit that I can get a little obsessed with wrapping gifts. It is my favorite part of gift giving.
A few years ago I threw out all my wrapping paper, preferring to only store one roll of kraft wrapping paper that I decorate with stamps or paint or even just a simple ribbon. Of course I also keep a stash of gift bags and tissue paper to save the day when I don't have enough hours to get everything done.
Recently, I made a bunch of simple muslin bags out of fabric scraps to use for shipping in my shop. These little bags are great for gift wrapping small presents.
1. Cut two rectangles rectangles of fabric the same size (large enough to fit your gift).
2. Serge or hem one side of each rectangle which will be the top of your bag.
3. Put right sides together and sew on three sides. Turn fabric right side out and you are finished.
I stamped my bags with letter stamps and Stayz On ink in black. I tied it together with baker's twine.
I whipped up this holiday version in about five minutes! So easy and a great way to use up fabric scraps!
P.S. If you like my "Happy Holidays" gift tag, stay tuned for another day! Thanks for reading.
