The stationary pros at Expressionery.com came up with a great craft idea that is thrifty, functional and fun: homemade gift bags!
: Paper lunch bags, rubber stamp(s) of your choice, ink pads in a few colors, pinking shears, hole puncher and ribbon. Check out some great stamps at Expressionery.com
: Lay paper bag on a flat surface. Stamp the bag in random places or in a pattern. We used holiday themed stamps (pictured) to tie in to our holiday theme. With the pinking shears, trim the top of the bag for a more finished look. If wrapping a bottle, you can simply tie your ribbon around the neck and gather it loosely. If you want to seal the bag, fold the top over, punch two holes in it and pull a ribbon through. This is a project that kids can do themselves and personalize with doodles, glitter and other embellishments. Voila! Custom gift bag!
