My name is Helena and I live in Vallentuna (Sweden) with my husband, my two daughters and two cats in a house built in the 1940′s. I’m a graphical designer and I’ve had my own company Bildbiten for ten years now. I love to create things – I crochet, knit, paint, sew and do a lot of paper craft. I also enjoy home decorating. You can find me at Craft & Creativity.
Gift bags are very useful, but when you need them, you’re always out of them. And they’re quite expensive.
Then it struck me. It must be possible to make gift bags yourself. Especially when you already have everything you need at home – pretty paper, string and glue. I simply took a gift bag that I had at home and disassembled it. I did a bit of moderation of the size and made a PDF template which your are welcome to download for personal use.
The dimensions are adapted to fit on an A4 sheet, because I imagine that’s the most common size of paper. However, this is a fairly small (but cute) gift bag, 9 cm high and 11.5 cm high. If you want a bigger bag, then simply scale to desired size.
