Quick, Stylish Gift Wrap Idea

Pin It
Over the weekend I attended a good friends wedding––of course I can never do ANYTHING ahead of time so I'm always rushing around at the last minute and needing really quick ideas that come out looking not-so-quick. I had to think fast, knew I didn't have time to wrap a box, so bag it was! But look at how stylish you can make a regular, ho-hum gift bag turn cute with just a few simple items from the craft store. 

What You Need:

• Simple, inexpensive gold gift bag
• Wide satin ribbon (unwired)
• Feathers
• Tissue Paper
• Cardstock
• Double Sided Tape

{I use Adobe Illustrator for the card, but any word processing program should do.}


Simply tie the feathers to the handle with the satin ribbon and affix your card to the ribbon-tails with the double-sided tape. 

Voila! A quick and personalized gift on the go! Even with having to whip up the Illustrator file, this took me 10 minutes, tops.

Completely fabulous! I would be so happy to see this bag that I would forget there is a present inside! It's like two presents in one!

Andrea, I'm I share this adorable idea with my friends or keep it to myself to wow my next gift recipient? Hmmmm...
