DIY Father’s Day Gift Bags plus more dad and grad ideas!
I pinned some Father’s Day gift bags from Paper Crave last year. I decided this year to do something with the pin and put my spin on these adorable gift bags. I am joining up with some other great blogs to bring you a ton of dad and grad ideas today. This is a part of my design work with Buttons Galore and More so they provided the buttons and some other supplies for this project. Continue to the bottom of this post for the other ideas plus information on how to enter to win a prize. But right now lets get crafty!
Cut a piece of scrap book paper for your bow tie first. It should be about 2 inches or so wide and not quite as long as your white paper bag.
Fold that piece in half and cut into a triangle but your cuts should not meet in the center.
Unfold and use glue dots to apply to your white paper lunch bag.
Next grab your brads and put them down the center of the paper bag. Just punch the tab portion through your bag and fold out your tabs on the inside. I just eyeballed the location.
I then used a few coordinating pieces of scrap book paper and cut two concentric circles. On the top circle, I stamped a message for dad with letter stamps and ink.
I then used glue dots to put the circles on the side of my “shirt” gift bag like a button. Then unfold your bag and it is ready to add a gift to the inside.
I was so pleased I made a second version just for fun. I love these little shirt gift bags and they are so easy to make.
What a fun way to show dad you care this Father’s Day. Make his own customized gift bag with these easy to follow instructions. These would be great to get the kids involved in crafting as well. Get started on your DIY Father’s Day gift bags today.
