This is my version of your WAY COOL idea, Retro-Redux.  I used an old sheet music cover for the pink bag.  I used sheet music to wrap the second one, and used part of a mandolin music magazine to trim the top of the second one.  The sheet music on the green bag, by the way, I got at a yard sale in a huge box of music for $5.  This looks old because it is; the previous owner jotted down that she got this in 1942 - copyright for the music itself is 1932.  Thank heavens it doesn't smell musty.  This is my first ever use of photobucket, so I hope you can see what I did.

I make these too, but haven't bothered to wrap them.  Depending on the food box you use, it can be part of your gift's theme.  For example, you could use a microwave popcorn box and fill it with DVDs and movie theater candy.  You could use a popsicle box (the Edy's Fruit Bars boxes are pretty) to make a bag for a pair of sunglasses and a trashy novel for a friend taking a beach vacation.  I have used the tiny boxes that conversation hearts (valentine's candy) come in to make a tiny bag for a gift card.  And so on.

For handles, I have re-used the handles from old gift bags that had worn out.  I have also used worn out shoe laces (after a trip through the washer) and the curling ribbon that comes on balloons to make handles.  I have also seen the same idea on the Family Fun magazine website where they just cut an oval shape the width of a hand instead of adding handles.
