By adding simple embellishments, ordinary brown or white paper bags are transformed into elegant wrappings -- and a ready-made way to carry a gift home.
- Two buttons
- Sewing kit
- Cuff link
Sew two buttons to a bag, and wind with twine.
Make two buttonholes in ribbon so that when it's draped over a folded bag, the buttonholes line up on the front and back; cut a small hole in the bag where the buttonholes fall, and secure with a cuff link. Glue the ends of the ribbon to bottom of bag.
Lace ribbon through slits you've made along the flap of the bag.
