Shaker Gift Bag

Hi, friends, it’s Chark here today to show you a project I made with a gift bag from a jewelry store. It was a quality black bag (that held my 25th anniversary ring!) and had the store name on just one side. So, I did some easy trimming and taping and got a shaker gift bag to give for Christmas. Classy upcycling!

Step 1: Trim off the store name from the front of the bag.


2. Trim a plastic bag to fit the hole and fill with a stamped sentiment and sequins. The flat sequins don’t move around as much as the cupped sequins. You can add other stamped images such as stars or hearts or more sentiments.


3. Adhere a piece of pearlized silver paper to the inside of the bag to cover the hole and then place the sequin bag over the front of the hole that you cut.


4. Use glitter tape to tape the sequin pack to the front of the bag and cover the edges.
