It's easy to make these little gift bags out of newspaper. Plus, it's a great way to recycle! Pick a good section of your paper (the comics are always fun), or use a foreign language paper for added interest. If you're wrapping a small housewarming gift, it would be fun to use the real estate section of the paper. Here are a couple of examples I made:

You make it look so easy, I'm going to have to have a go!

They're really not hard at all, and you can make them out of any sort of paper.

It's one folded section of the paper, so it's really 2 layers thick. The folded part becomes the top edge after you fold it down again.
