Every day can be as special as Earth Day when you use this reusable gift-presentation bag / tote bag!
This Polka Dot Gift Bag has a festive confetti dot print with coordinating aqua and green handles. This bag, with its fun design, would be great for presenting birthday or housewarming gifts. The bag measures 11" x 3 1/2" x 10" (28 cm x 9 cm x 25.5 cm) and is lined and has interfacing between the layers. (The bag has the same weight and feel that shirt collar and cuffs do.) I have fit at least half a dozen paperback books gift bags that are this size. Also great for small electronics or gardening tools. One friend of mine carries here seeds in these when she gardens. Another uses hers to carry library books.
The interfacing in the bags is handy because it gives them body. Although they aren't as rigid as paper gift bags, between the interfacing and their gusseted bottoms, they can stand alone. Like paper bags, they can be folded for easy storage. If you ever feel that your bag has become too crinkled, simply iron it!
I decided to make reusable gift bags for my family after reading about how much wrapping paper is discarded every year. I hadn't realized that the glossy coatings and metallic finishes on them were toxic to the environment. I wasn't sure how my family would react, but they loved the gift bags. We end up trading them back and forth on the holidays.
You can either establish a tradition of returning the bags to the giver, or you can give the bag as part of the gift. Some people add a tag to their bags and write the city where they live on it. The next recipient adds his/her city, then give it to someone new. It can be fun to see how one bag travels to give joy to so many. The only limit to the bags' use is your imagination!
