What You Will Need

  • Mini Glue Dots
  • White paper lunch sacks
  • Scrap book paper
  • Cricut machine or circle die cutter
  • Stamps and ink

  • Cut a piece of scrapbook 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.

  • Next grab your brads and put them down the center of the paper bag. Just punch the tab portion through the outside of the bag and fold out your tabs on the inside. I just eyeballed the location.

  • I then used a few coordinating pieces of scrapbook 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.
