Here, you will be making paper gift bags with handles; let’s begin!

  1. Measure and Cut the Wrapping Paper

First, measure the circumference of the gift box with the measuring tape. Whatever the result comes, add half an inch. Now measure the height of the box, add 1 inch of the depth of the gift box. Finally, cut the square of wrapping paper.

  1. Fold the top of the Paper

Fold the wrapping paper 1 inch toward the inside. This will be the top of your paper gift bag.

  1. Place the Box on the Back Side of the Wrapping Paper

Place the gift box bottom on the right side of the wrapping paper, which is also at the bottom of the paper. The ½ inch folded edge should be on top. Make sure to pull the wrap paper on the right side of the box until there is a 1 inch margin of paper on the top right side.

  1. Time to Fix the Gift Bag

Pull the left-hand side of the paper over the box and paste the left edge to the top of the right edge of the paper.

  1. From the Bottom of the Bag

Pull the top paper down over the box, and fold creases on the left and right-hand side. Then fold the left & right creases toward the center.

  1. Secure the Bottom of the Bag

Adhere the bottom of the bag with tape.

  1. Finish the Top of the Gift Bag

If your gift is a bit heavier, then place a square of cardboard at the bottom of the bag to have extra stability. To carry it comfortably, you need a handle, so punch two holes on the top of each side of the bag, and insert a ribbon for handles. Then tie each end of the ribbon handle into a thick knot.
