Using White Lunch Bags to Wrap Gifts

When wrapping Christmas gifts there are always those smaller items that you don't have a box the right size for. Last year I used white lunch sacks. You can get these at most dollar stores and they work great to wrap a bunch of stuff. I just took several red and green marking pens and scribbled on them to add color. You can add a bow or ribbon if you like. They were a big hit! But this year, I let my 5 year old granddaughter do the decorating on them for me. She had a blast "making Christmas wrap bags" and was being helpful at the same time. You can't beat the price! At a dollar for 50, they cost about 2 cents each!

I love this idea - I like to decorate them with snowflakes and snowmen. Rubber stamping or potato stamping on them is fun, too!

The brown ones work nice too - I fold them over at the top and punch 2 holes -then thread some yarn through - it looks very rustic and old fashioned.

The brown ones are nearly the color of gingerbread, so look cute when you draw a gingerbread man on them with white puffy paint or white crayon.
