Loop strings through holes to make ties
Over on Offbeat Bride our DIY editor Liz has got a great post on how to make a gift bag out of a map. Of course, if you don't have access to maps, you can use the same tutorial with newspaper, calendars, magazine pages, recycled wrapping paper, coloring book pages — whatever suits your fancy.

This tutorial is a great way to recycle something old into something new, AND guarantee you'll never have to buy gift bags again!

Head over to Offbeat Bride and get to bagging.
