Step 1: Cutting

I started by cutting the top part of my paper bag because my gift was small and I didn’t want a lot of empty space on my bag. (You can of course skip this step if your gift is a bit bigger.)


 

Step 2: Folding

I folded the top of the bag twice to close it neatly. The folds measure about 1 inch.


 

Step 3: Hole punch

I made two holes on the folded part. The holes can be as close or apart as you want. I find it looks better when they are farther apart. (Just be careful you don’t make them too close to the edges!)


 

Step 4: Adding a ribbon

I attached a ribbon through each of the holes and made a small bow.

Another option

Take a piece of scrapbook paper and attach it underneath the fold. (You can make some holes in it so that it fits together with the folds, or you can glue it right under the holes in the bag.)
