Creative Ways to Use Cookie Cutters #8: Gift Bags

Monday, April 29th, 2013


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!
