Gingerbread paper bag gift wrap bags are so easy to make. Just follow the pictures above to create the house shape and decorate the bag. I used white paint pen and glitter glue to decorate the bags, but you can use color pens, craft paper, and any other embellishments. Once all the decorations are done, just punch two holes at the top, drop the gift in, and add ribbon.

For the gingerbread people bags, I cut off about 2 inches from the tops of the paper bags. Then, I used the gingerbread stencils from Oriental Trading and colored pens to create the outline of gingerbread girls.

All done!  The gift is ready to be delivered in a cute DIY gingerbread paper bag!
