Decorated Christmas bagsDLTK's Holiday Activities
Decorated Brown Paper Bags

Contributed by Leanne Guenther

Children, teenagers or adults can decorate sturdy brown paper bags and use them as gift bags.  The typical cost of a sturdy brown paper bag (the type with rope handles) is about 75 cents which makes these both cute and less expensive than store bought gift bags.

I have provided templates for a few variations of the idea, but you can get creative and use letters cut from wrapping paper, hand made characters and die cut shapes to decorate them.

Handprint characters like the Handprint Reindeer, Handprint Santa and Handprint Angel also make cute decorations for the bags.
