Creative Ways to Use Cookie Cutters #8: Gift Bags


Gift bags are another one of the many creative ways to use cookie cutters, and the recipients of your gifts will enjoy getting their gift in a unique bag.

You will need the following items:

  • white paper gift bag (at craft supply stores)
  • spray paint (in whatever color you want)
  • colorful tissue paper
  • white computer paper
  • cookie cutter, of course!

Grab a pencil and trace around a cookie cutter on a sheet of paper. Then stack several squares of paper under it before cutting it out, so that you only need to cut out the figure once.

Using sticky tack, white tape, or blue painter’s tape, stick the cut-out shapes all over your white gift bag. Now grab your spray paint and spray the bag. Let it dry overnight.

In the morning, remove the figures, and you have your finished gift bag. Add color-coordinated tissue paper to the bag to make it look lovely, keeping in mind the favorite colors of the recipient of your gift. Don’t forget to load the gift into the bag before adding the tissue paper!

  1. Another great idea! When I read the title I assumed you were either tracing the cookie cutter shapes on the bag or dipping them in paint to stamp the shapes on the bag. I would have never thought of using spray paint like you did! You are so creative! Thank you for sharing your creativity with us!

    This is a great idea to personalize gift bags. I’ve used bags in the past but never thought about spray painting them. I love it!
