I know these have probably been done to death, but this is the first time I've ever attempted a project like this.  I made these gift bags using grocery flyers.  I used cereal box cardboard to line the bottom, since I'm giving heavy gifts!  They seem pretty sturdy and they only took a little while to make.  I think they are a lot more interesting than traditional gift bags, and I love that I got to re-use the flyers.

I like this one best because of the bow.

The string is made from paper too, just twisted like rope.

did you follow a tutorial? I'd love to make these but have no idea where to start. I buy recycled newspaper ones from amnesty international lol.

There are tons of tutorials on youtube, but I didn't end up following any one in particular. 

Watch a few of them and I'm sure you'll be inspired!
