Origami Gift Bag Tutorial

Origami Gift Bag
This very pretty bag requires 1 sheet of square paper and a bunch of easy folds. I used 6cm handmade Japanese origami paper. The completed bag measures 5.3cm x 1.4cm x 5cm. If you would like a larger bag, simply start with a larger piece of paper. Use the tutorial below to make your own.

The little cotton handle is recycled from my string and ribbon box, it was part of a price tag. No scissors were used, the 2 holes for the handle were made with a hole punch.

A couple of dabs of a glue stick are handy on the inside of the bag. Please check out my video; let me know what you think.

  18. I have so much costume jewellery that I never wear. I think I will make some of these bags for giving them away. I have a small stash of pretty paper that I can use.
