 How to Make Gift Bags with Wrapping Paper DIY

Making gift bags is the perfect way to gift things easily and on a tight budget!  This is a craft project that I remember watching my mom do over and over.  She never walked me through the process or taught me verbally...I just watched.  I learned so much by watching my mom.  These cute gift bags are easy to make with kraft paper or any wrapping paper...old maps, newspaper or scrap paper that is on its way to the recycling bin.  Perfect for making custom size, for wrapping my favorite gifts, Lego sets!
You will need:
Wrapping Paper
Double Sided Adhesive Tape
Here's a video for an easy visual:

Begin by cutting a piece of wrapping paper.  Fold one side over to the center of the back and then run some tape along the edge.  Fold the other side over and line it up with the tape and press it down, with the center seam down the back of the bag.
 The side folds are pushed inward to make an inch or 2 accordion folds.
 Repeat identically for the other side.
 Then take the bottom edge of the bag up about 1/2 the way up.
 Then open the bottom edge.
 Press down the inside triangles with your hand inside the bottom of the bag.
 Repeat for the other side.
 Then fold the edge of the base down.
 And repeat for the other side.
 Tuck the tip of the triangle under and fold up the bottom flap.
 Then tuck under the tip of the top flap and put tape on just the underside of the flap...and then press it on the bottom flap.
 Now it's ready to open up and fill with goodies!  Make party favors, gift bags, perfectly wrapped gifts or last minute fun with these great gift bags.
 Fold them down and staple them...add ribbon handles...and add a tag!
