Throwing a party? Learn how to make your own diy mini gift bags with this free printable template. They'll give your party favours an extra special touch and only take minutes to make.


No matter what the occasion a cute gift or party bag never gets old. I made these mini gift bags using the gorgeous American Crafts Gather scrapbook paper designed by Maggie Holmes but they can be customised to go with any theme as long as you can find the scrapbook paper!

And don't worry, these lovely little bags are really easy to make. All you need is the free gift bag template below, a sheet of scrapbook paper, scissors and some double sided sticky tape. Let's get started:


SUPPLIES: Printable Gift Bag Template, Scrapbook Paper or Card Stock (I used Maggie Holmes Gather 12 x 12 Paper Pad), Scissors, Bone Folder, a Ruler and Double Sided Tape or Glue.

1. Print out the mini gift bag template and print it onto the back of your scrapbook paper or card stock.

2. Cut out the template.


3. Score along all the lines using a bone folder and a ruler. If you don't have a bone folder an old ball point pen is a great alternative.


4. Fold along all the score lines.


5. Glue the tabs together.

7. Fill the bag with your gift.

6. To close the bag pinch the top together and stick down using some washi tape or stickers.



P.S. Don't forget to tell your guest to grab a bag on the way out.

I've got a pretty special papercraft to share with you today, diy woven paper heart baskets. These woven paper hearts are traditionally a Christmas decoration in Denmark and are hung from a Christmas tree but I think they make a beautiful Valentine as well.

They seem a little tricky to begin with but once you've got the hang of it they are actually quite easy to make. Before you know it you'll have a whole bunch of these woven paper heart baskets to fill with treats and gift to your sweet Valentine.

SUPPLIES: Woven Heart TemplateMaggie Holmes Gather 12 x 12 Scrapbook Paper Pad (You can get it here, here or here), scissors and some glue.

1. Print out the template and cut out the shape. Fold in half and cut along the central lines.

If you're using patterned paper print the template out onto the back of your paper and re-fold it so the printed lines are on the inside.

2. Start by weaving the first strip of red paper between the 2 layers of the pink strip.

Top Tip.

Instead of the traditional over and under weaving technique you want to think of it as weaving inside and out. So you'll taking the red strip and place it inside the pink strip. This is what creates the pocket.

3. Next thread the pink strip between the red strip. Then red through pink and finally pink through red.


4. For the next strip alternate and weave the pink through the red and then the red through the pink. You should be able to see a checkerboard pattern beginning to form.

5. Keep weaving and alternating until all the strips are woven together.

The final strip does take a bit of wiggling so be patient. As always I recommend practicing on some scrap paper first. It helps to push and shift the strips into position as you go.

If you're really struggling to get the last strip in place it can help to make the strips slightly longer when you first cut them, an extra millimeter or 2 can make all the difference.


7. To finish cut a strip of scrap paper (I used the leftover paper from cutting out the template) and glue to the inside of your basket to make a handle.

8. Fill with candy and give to your Valentine.
