7 minute no sew gift “bag” tutorial December 1, 2010

Posted by Judy in Tutorials.

So you are getting ready to go to a party and realize, “Shoot, I don’t have any birthday wrapping paper!” or “Nuts, I could have sworn I had some extra gift bags laying around!”  or “(insert your own dilemma here)”.    You don’t have time to sew up a nice little bag, no time to go to the store . . what to do, what to do?  Simple, you throw together a 7-minute gift bag.   Actually, this took me 7 minutes only because I was taking pics and fighting with my silly camera.  Senza pics, 4 or 5 minutes, tops!

Materials needed:

  • pinking shears
  • fabric
  • ribbon

Step 1:  Gather your materials

Step 2:  Cut your fabric to the appropriate size.  Plop the gift on the fabric, gather up the sides into the center and cut.  Alternatively, you could just guess how much you think you’ll need and cut a square with your pinking shears.  Doesn’t have to be perfect, just big enough to be able to get bunched up into the middle.

Step 3:  Tie your ribbon around the gift.

Step 4:  Stand back and admire your work!!
