I love these gift bags, they are fast to make and have no waste. Try one out when you need a gift bag in a hurry and can't get to the store in time.
This bag saves energy in at least two ways. It saves you not having to drive to the store for a gift bag and it saves energy because then there is at least one less bag being made that would have been bought. If this catches on an many people reuse their chip bags for gift bags, that is saving a lot of energy.
Step 1: The tools and supplies you'll need
clear packing tape
plastic grocery bag(s)
Step 2: Cleaning the bag
Step 4: Tape the bottom
Step 5: Height of bag
Step 7: Finishing the bag with handles and tissue 'paper'/plastic
next cut the bottom seam and handles off
then cut off the store name/logo (leave the plastic warning on)
use this 'sheet' of plastic as tissue 'paper'
cut 2 strips of plastic about an inch or an inch and a half wide
string them through the holes
then tie them in a knot or bow on the inside of the bag
