Need a gift bag?

Hi Everyone!

I had a birthday gift for a friend and needed to 'wrap' it. I love gift bags since they make gift wrapping so easy. I went out to buy a gift bag because I didn't have a large one on hand. Sometimes I feel kind of cheap ... the price for a large gift bags seemed kind of high. I thought for a little bit and decided to pick up a bargain bag and see if I could add something to it to make it special. This is what I came up with. I cut a few slits in the bag and wove some ribbon around it. I probably didn't save any money because I don't remember what I paid for the ribbon, but I did have fun.
