DIY: Brown Paper Bag Wrapping Paper

I love kraft paper, and while I could have bought a roll of it to use, I decided on using a brown paper bag from the grocery store instead (since it was something I already had) for wrapping paper.

  • Brown paper bag
  • Scissors
  • Stamp(s)
  • Stamp pad(s)
  • Tape 


— 1 —
Cut open the brown paper bag at the one of the vertical creases. Cut the bottom rectangle at three of the creases so that the bag lays flat.

— 2 —
Decide which part of the bag you want to use for wrapping. Estimate the size of the area you need.

— 3 —
Stamp the area with chosen stamp(s).

— 4 —
Cut out stamped area.

— 5 —
Wrap present. (Grocery bag paper is generally sturdier than regular wrapping paper, so you may need to use a stronger tape to keep things wrapped tightly.)
