Gift Bag Template - Simple Bag

Use different patterned paper to make gift bags suitable for any occasions. Here are a couple that my mom and I made. I think my favorite is the swirly flower pattern on the right - so pretty!

Materials

To make your gift bags, the only equipment you'll need is:

  • A printer

  • Some nice paper/card to print onto. I recommend scrap-booking paper, because it comes in great colors and patterns. But you could also use wrapping paper cut down to US-letter or A4 size.

  • Scissors or a craft knife
  • Glue or double sided tape


Download the Template

Download this free printable gift bag template (pdf format).

Print the template onto a piece of patterned paper.

If your paper has a patterned side and a blank side, then make sure you print onto the blanks side! The blank side will be the inside of the bag, so all the printed lines will be hidden.

Once you've printed the template, follow the instructions below...


Instructions

Step 1

Cut along all the solid lines. Then, score along the dotted lines with a butter knife and a ruler. This helps the paper fold along the dotted lines more easily.

Step 2

Fold up the template into a tube like this. Put glue or double sided tape on the side-tab to hold it together.

Step 3

Now fold in all the tabs on the base of the bag. Use glue or double sided tape to hold the last tab in place.

Finished!

Congratulations on finishing your gift bag! Now you can fill it with candy or a gift! I've found that this bag is a perfect size to fit a small bag of homemade bath salts.
