Upcycle a Kraft Paper Store Bag - finished bag with tissue paper insideNeed a last minute gift bag? Or a way to repurpose all those kraft paper store bags you may have collected/laying around? You can do so by using any magazines you have (or even newspaper, a great way to recycle!).

The theme of my gift bag is "food", because the gifts inside were snacks and treats for my friend. I thought it was cute to customize her gift bag. You can apply the same concept for weddings, birthdays, kids, etc.

Total Time: 25 minutes

Yield: 1 bag

Supplies:

  • store kraft paper bag
  • scissors
  • glue stick
  • tape
