Tis the season for obscene amounts of gift wrapping, and if that's not your forte here's an easy and cheap alternative that still looks cute and christmasy. All you need are some plain brown paper lunch bags, a hole punch, some ribbon, and mini bows.
1. Fold the top of the bag down a few times. You can fold it down more if you have a small present in the bag, or less if you've got one that fills most of the bag. (I'd already punched holes in this one before I remembered to take a picture).Lady Redundant Woman) in the fold of the bag. If I were you I'd punch them about an inch apart (and since this is my tutorial you should probably listen to me). This is where your ribbon is going to come through to tie the bag shut.
For some of the bags I just tied some silver ribbon in a bow in the front, then added a pre-made to/from sticker from my mom's christmas wrapping stash (I did this project at my mom's house since we're spending time with our families for the holidays).
Then all you have to do is throw them under the Christmas tree (gently! the presents inside might be fragile!) and VOILA! Instant gift wrapping goodness.
