Make a cute bag like this one with my free printable gift bag templates.
These bags are really sweet, don't you think? My husband designed the templates and I think they turned out great :-) I hope you enjoy making them too. They're the perfect size for holding candies, soaps, or other small gifts.
(I also have several other free gift box templates you might like to check out.)
To make your gift bags, the only equipment you'll need is:
Download this free pdf template, and print it onto nice paper.
If your paper has one nice side and one blank side, then make sure you print onto the blank side. Most likely you'll figure out how to assemble the bag just from looking at the template, but there are some pointers below just in case.
Cut along the solid lines, and score along dotted lines with a butter knife and ruler.
Put glue or double sided tape on the side-tab, and make a the box into a tube-shape.
Fold in the tabs on the base of the box. Apply glue or tape before you fold up the last tab, to hold the base in place.
Now close the top of the box like this:
Congratulations on finishing your gift bag! Now you can fill it with candy or a gift :o)
