Layered Paper Gift Bag {An Easy DIY}

This is an eeaaasy DIY that you can do in just a few minutes! Quickly transform a plain bag into something beautiful!

Here's how to make your very own:

You'll need a plain paper gift bag (you can find a 2 pack at the dollar store), patterned or colored paper, and tape.

Start with your plain paper bag and measure the width.

Cut 8 pieces of paper that measure 2.5-3 inches high and the same inches wide as your bag. You'll use four pieces for each side.
If you're going to scallop the edges like I did, do that on one edge of each piece. I used a paper punch, but you could also use scissors that create a decorative edge.

Optional: To create more dimension, roll each piece, so they don't just lay flat.

Start at the bottom and tape each piece/layer in place making sure to line up the edges and space them as evenly as possible. I used a few "loops" of tape on the back of each layer.

Follow these steps for each side of your back, and then you'll have your own layered gift bag!

This is where I party:
