Presenting a gift in a gift bag is one of my favorite gift wrapping methods.

I love the flexibility of a gift bag as there are no awkward corners to try to fold wrapping paper around.

I was inspired by this adorable springtime paper I found at my Daiso Dollar Store.

The springtime paper is so sweet and paired with a organza ribbon, I think it's the nicest combination!

Here's what you need for your DIY Paper Gift Bag

  • Pretty paper - you can go small or big depending upon what you need to wrap. Just adjust your size based on the item. Make sure that the girth/width of your paper overlaps in the back so you have enough paper to tape/glue.
  • Scissors
  • Glue or clear tape
  • Hole punch
  • Ribbon
