HOW TO MAKE ‘NO SEW’ FABRIC GIFT BAGS AND WRAP
Reduce the stress and waste of gift wrapping by making SIMPLE tie fabric gift bags and wrap. Re-usable and always a nice personal touch, handmade gift bags can also be customized for the receiver (think favorite color, pattern, or sports team – the fabric choices are endless)! This is a fun DIY project to do with the kids too. Let them choose fabric and ribbon to create their own gift bag designs!
k.o. ecolife offers three suggestions from SIMPLE to SIMPLEST:
-Scissors [sewing ‘cutting’ AND ‘pinking’ shears preferred (for ties)]
Step 5: Lay fabric flat and Apply fabric glue sparingly to underside edges of top edge fabric (this will be used later to fold down at the top of bag for a decorative touch (and it hides the wrong side of the fabric inside the bag)
Step 6: Continue lightly applying fabric glue to remaining seams excluding top seam
Step 7: Press fabric together at seams and let dry
Step 1: Cut fabric to desired size using either pinking (to prevent fraying) or cutting shears
Step 2: Cut strips of fabric using pinking shears to create bag ties/ribbon (optional) or buy pre-made
Step 3: Place gift in center of fabric on wrong side and gather at top
Step 4: Knot ribbon around gathered fabric – You’re done hun!
HOW TO (Option 3 – Fabric Gift Wrap)
Step 2: Cut strips of fabric using pinking shears (to prevent fraying) to create bag ties/ribbon (optional) or buy pre-made
Step 3: Place gift in center of fabric on left or right side and roll item until you reach the opposite side
