I always do this. With wrapping paper, there's so much waste. (12/19/2005)

On the HGTV site, there is instruction about how to make a gift bag out of an envelope. I tried this and it is easy and very attractive.
With this or used bags, I often add embellishments, and ribbon or string handles. (12/21/2005)

When I use a gift bag, I put tissue paper over the top of the present and fold a corner over the side of the bag. I put a to and from tag on the corner. This way you can see the tag, and the person can reuse the bag without having somone else's name on it. (01/01/2006)
I always recycle any nice gift bag I receive. They can be used over and over. I was in a birthday club for many years and we all did this and it was sort of a standing joke because we'd see these same bags go round and round to ea other! (01/11/2006)
For next year, I have MD gift bags from left over cloth material. I hope it goes over well. (quote)(/quote) (01/14/2006)
