Father’s Day Gift Bags Instructions:

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.
