Gingerbread House Gift Bags

Updated: Nov 27, 2022

I have to ship gifts half way across the country but still want it to be a cute when the receivers open them. My goal was to make something that could still fit into a shipping envelope. I'll post what's in them at a later date when they get opened by the intended receivers.


  • Scissors

  • Tape

  • Pencil

  • Brown Butcher Paper

  • whole punch

  • Paint pen

  • ribbon


  1. Follow Martha Stewart's DIY gift bag video to create the bag

  2. Mark the middle of the opening with a pencil.

  3. fold the ends in until you reach the marked middle line and you have a nice point.

  4. Repeat step 3 to the other side.

  5. Use the hole punch to punch through all of the layers of the tip

  6. Decorate with the paint pen.

  7. Fill with the gift

  8. Tie the ribbon through the hole at the top and enjoy!
