How to Make a Gift Bag from Wrapping Paper

To make a gift bag from wrapping paper, start by placing the item you are planning to wrap down on your paper. You want your “folded paper” to be at least the width of your item.

Once you have that width, cut your paper accordingly.

Now fold one side over the other and add two pieces of tape. This should leave you with a “tube” type shape, open on both ends.
