Stay Organized - Tip of the Day: Don't Buy the Gift Bag, Make It!

From Payne to Gain Organizing is presenting a daily tip in January - Get Organized Month. Follow full blog at www.frompaynetogainorganizing.com.

Got extra fabric laying around from an old project? Or maybe you just want to "go green" or have a craft project for the kids? Either or all of the above? Make gift bags with the fabric! 

All you need is shown in the pics - supervise kids with iron if the little ones are helping. With hem tape and an iron you can "sew" the sides/bottom by ironing fabric while inside out...turn the bag out, cut top with pinking shears for a cute look and to keep fabric from fraying. 

Add a yarn tie or other ribbon and to match and it's done! Can be done in all sizes and fabric possibilities are ENDLESS! Think of all the fun holiday fabrics and all the paper gift bags you could avoid buying if you went fabric instead. Clears old fabric clutter from the craft room and you'll always be prepared with a lovely gift bag on the ready.
