I don’t care why your trying to go green, for me it’s just to save money and feel better about not being as wasteful. I’m making a ton of different gift bags to get ready for birthdays and Christmas this year. I reuse the regular paper gift bags, but they get destroyed really easily. Wrapping paper is one use only too.
These bags are pretty simple to make, I made a bunch of different ones from scrap fabric, and they turned out really cute. I don’t really use patterns, but these are really just a cylinder shape.
Tote bags or drawstring backpacks would be a good way to wrap presents too.
You can also check my etsy shop to buy some of these that I have made.
