Tutorial Tryouts are my reviews of DIY gift wrapping ideas from the internet and other sources. Click here for the whole series!
Start with a simple paper bag cut in half. This one is a wine bag (3.75"x11.5") from Trader Joe's, but you can find your own at a craft store or any store that sells beverages. (I've even seen these behind the checkout stands at Target!)
Then I sewed the ends of the bags. I hand-stitched one bag with embroidery thread and zipped the other one through my sewing machine on a zig-zag stitch. One bag will only need to be sewn shut; the other will need to be sewn on both ends.
What do you think? Please let me know if you try this!
