Add a decorative touch to your home with this simple method that uses gift bags cut to size to fit in a picture frame. You can make this a very frugal craft too if you use the money saving option of buying your gift bag and picture frame from the dollar store.
1Gift Bag (any size and pattern of your choice)
1Picture Frame (in a size to correspond with your gift bag)
Loosen any prongs on the back of the picture frame that are holding the glass in place, and remove the glass. (You will be using the glass as your cutting template).
Lay your gift bag flat and place the picture frame glass on the bag so that it is nicely centered over the design on the bag you wish to cut out and frame. You may need to remove the handles from the gift bag for this step too. Using your pencil, trace around the glass. Put the glass back in the frame.
Using your scissors, cut along the pencil line that was drawn.
Place the cut-out gift bag piece into the frame to complete your DIY wall art.
When using the glass as your template, There will usually be about 1/4" or so around the edge that the frame will cover so you'll want to be mindful of this when positioning your glass. This can work to your advantage if you want to keep something covered (like the holes at the top of the bag), but you don't want to inadvertently cover part of the design that you want showing either.
