Use a small box the size you want your gift bag and wrap it in plastic wrap.
Use strips of paper and paper mache (white glue works) and cover the box, leaving
one end open. Let it dry completely.
When it's dry, use paint, glitter, markers, raffia, colored "jewels"
and bows to decorate the bag. Use a hole punch to punch holes in the top of the
bag and tie ribbon or yarn to the holes for the handles.
