Today sharing my DIY Reusable Gift Bag idea! A few weeks ago I was at Target and came across these cute straw bags in the dollar section for $3.00 each. I picked two of them up thinking that they would be great, easy DIY projects for when the time came!
The whole idea started because I’m hosting a baby shower next month and I wanted to come up with cute little gifts for the winners of some of the games we’re going to play. So I decided to use the Hazel and Ruby stencil to make this bag.
Here’s what you need:
$3 Tote bag from Target
Sharpie Permanent Colored Markers
Start by laying out your stencil mask onto your bag carefully the way you’d like it to look.
Once the stencil is on there SECURELY, choose your Sharpie color and gently outline around the letters. Since it’s a textured bag it may work best to kind of dot around the outside.
Continue this in the colors you choose for all of the letters, gently remove the stencil and do any touch ups as needed.
I outlined the sun in two colors just to add some color to it…
Once you’re done you can add your gift to the bag to surprise your recipient. I added some cute polka dot tissue paper to it from Hazel and Ruby just for some fun!
You can decorate this with the pre-made sayings or you can use your own alphabet of letter stencils to personalize the bag for your guests or recipient!
