No gift wrap or gift bags? No problem!

My brother's birthday was a couple of weeks ago and I had the gift covered. I have to admit, it pains be to BUY wrapping paper or gift bags - only because there's a more crafty way to wrap and you can use something from your "home arsenal."
I take a brown paper shopping bag and a couple of 12 x 12 sheets of scrapbook paper to make a customized gift bag. It is super handy when you are looking for a gender friendly bag - I always have a hard time finding bags for guys.
Just cover both sides with a little tacky glue and apply your paper. I usually do one side and then the other so that I am sure it sticks!
Then, I holepunch the top and tie it with ribbon. Ta-da!
