Dress Dad's Father's Day Gift Up With an Easy DIY Gift Bag

So the kids got (or made!) Dad the perfect Father’s Day gift. Why stop there? Make the presentation part of his fun by making this adorable DIY tie gift bag! And you don’t even need to know how to tie a Windsor knot! 

You’ll need:

Here's how to make it:

  1. Select a brown bag that will fit your amazing gift. (Plain brown gift bags are available at craft stores and sometimes your grocery store will have them without writing.)
  2. Cut a tie shape out of the cardstock or scrapbooking paper so it hangs to about 2 inches from the bottom of the brown bag.
  3. Using the glue stick, attach the tie to the top of the bag. Allow it to dry while you move to the next step.
  4. Cut a strip of brown paper (or use the top of another brown bag) about 3 inches wide by 6 inches long. The length will depend on the size of bag you’re using. Fold the last fourth of each end down (as shown in picture) and glue the unfolded part to the top of the tie to form a “collar.”
  5. Write your message on one of the gift labels and thread the jute through the hole. Glue the jute underneath the collar.

Done! Scrapbooking paper and cardstock come in all sorts of patterns. Pick one that fits Dad’s unique personality. Palm trees? Stripes? Polka dots? Whatever you decide, Dad is sure to feel special on his special day!
