Frugal Living: Reuse Gift Bags

Wedding and baby gift bags

Did you recently get married or have a baby? Do you have a crazy surplus of gift bags from your wedding and baby shower? I do. I would love to keep them all and store them like MacGyverisms does, but I just don’t have the space. 

Today, I got to thinking, what are some cool things that I could do with old gift bags. Here are a few ideas that came to mind:

  1. Reuse them for gift giving. Hey, if they’re still in great shape, why not!?!
  2. As a lunch bag.
  3. Turn them into greeting cards. I found a tutorial online for “how to make a napkin card“, but I feel like some of the images make it look like they used a gift bag instead of a napkin. Have a look. You’ll see what I mean.
  4. Use images from the gift bags for a scrapbooking or card making.
  5. Use small gift bags as pencil holder for the office. 

Do you have any ideas for ways to reuse gift bags?
