Grab this free printable gift bag! A great coloring activity for the holidays and a unique way to gift something to someone special.
The 9th Day of a Crafty Christmas is here! And with it comes a new free printable! This color-your-own gift bag is a great way to wrap up a special gift. A few years ago, I created a color-your-own gingerbread house and it was a huge hit with my kids and family. This year I decided to create a new color-your-own printable for the holidays and came up with these fun gift bags!
They are the perfect size for small gifts, handmade ornaments and sweet treats. The front and back of the bag feature different winter scenes, including a snowman, polar bear and cozy cottage. The boxes print on a single sheet of paper and assembling them is as easy as cutting them out and taping one side together!
My kids had a blast coloring these bags and I hope you will too!
- Free printable color-your-own gift bag – located at the end of this post
- White cardstock – My favorite paper to print on for these type of crafts is Neenah White 110lb paper
- Colored pencils, markers or crayons
- Double-sided tape – I used 1/2″ Scor Tape
- *optional: scoring board and stylus
Step One: Print the free printable bag on cardstock and color it in! I used colored pencils, but my kids loved trying out crayons and markers!
Step Two: Once the box and handle are colored in, cut them out with a scissors. My kids colored their boxes in and then I took over assembly.
Step Three: Score along the fold lines with a scoring board and stylus, or fold by hand.
Step Four: Attach the sides of the bag together using double-sided tape. I used 1/4″ Scor-Tape, which has a super strong hold to it.
Fold in the bottom of the box.
Step Five: Add the handle! I trimmed my handles down to the size I wanted and then taped them in using my Scor-Tape. The bag is finished and ready to be filled with something special and gifted for the holidays!
Only three more days of my Crafty Christmas series left! I hope you have been enjoying all the fun DIY projects so far!
