Cut the paper to 15 x 20 cm, this will make a gift bag approx. 10 cm x 15 cm. Decorate one side of the paper with the edding matt paint markers, using our templates or your own designs.
Turn the paper over and place double sided tape along one long and one short edge, then remove the backing from the tape. Place the sticky short edge over the other to form an open tube/roll shape. Press the straight edges together on the sticky side and stick firmly down. Fold the other side in the opposite direction, punch a hole in the middle and thread your ribbon through, tying it in an attractive bow (see pictures). Congratulations, you've finished your handmade gift bag!
