If you’re looking for something unique and personal to give as a wedding gift, why not try your hand at making a DIY gift bag? These bags can be customized to suit the couple’s taste and style, and they’re sure to appreciate the thoughtfulness and effort that went into making them.
Wedding Gift Guest Bags
Mini canvas totes
These are an easy and budget-friendly option for a DIY gift bag. Simply purchase some small canvas totes (you can find them at most craft stores), and then use fabric paint or markers to decorate them however you’d like. You could add the couple’s names, wedding date, or a sweet message. These bags would be perfect for holding small items like a bottle of wine or champagne, candies, or even jewelry.
Pink tissue paper
For a more glamorous option, try using pink tissue paper to make your own gift bags. All you need is a sheet of tissue paper (you can find this at most dollar stores), and a stapler.
Picture collage bags
If you’re feeling crafty, you could try your hand at making these picture collage bags. This would be a great way to use up any old photos you have lying around. Simply print out some pictures of the couple (wedding photos would be perfect), and then glue, print or tape them onto a plain white gift bag. You could also add some embellishments, like ribbon or sequins, to really make the bags pop.
Classic white bag with a ribbon
For a more classic look, try using a white gift bag and adding a ribbon in the couple’s wedding colors. This is an easy and elegant option that doesn’t require any fancy materials or crafting skills. Simply tie the ribbon around the handles of the bag, and you’re good to go.
Add bold and modern typography
If you want your gift bag to have a more modern look, try adding some bold and modern typography. This can be easily done with a Sharpie or other permanent marker. Simply write out the couple’s names, wedding date, or a short message on the bag. You could also try using stickers or other embellishments to add some extra flair.
Junk journal simple bags
For a truly unique and one-of-a-kind gift bag, try your hand at making a junk journal simple bag. This is a great way to upcycle any old paper products you have lying around. Simply gather up some old scrapbook paper, magazines, newspapers, or even wrapping paper. Cut or tear the paper into small pieces, and then glue or tape them onto a plain white gift bag. You can add whatever embellishments you like, and really make the bag your own.
Be bold with a black bag
If you’re feeling daring, try using a black gift bag to really make a statement. This can be an elegant and sophisticated option, or you could add some fun and funky embellishments to really make the bag pop. They are kind of masculine looking, but could be softened with the right ribbon or tissue paper.
Add a cheeky corporate logo like a Nike swoosh
For a fun and cheeky twist on the classic gift bag, try adding a corporate logo like a Nike swoosh. This is a great way to add some personality to the bag, and it’s sure to get a laugh from the couple. You could also try using other logos or images, and really make the bag your own.
Tie-dye gift bags
For a fun and funky option, try tie-dyeing some plain white gift bags. This is a great way to add some personality to the bags, and it’s sure to be a hit with the couple. You could also try using other colors or patterns, and really make the bags your own.
Extra-large tote bag
If you’re looking for a gift bag that’s a bit more spacious, try using an extra large tote bag. This is perfect for holding larger items like bottles of wine or champagne, towels, or even a small plant. You could also use it as a catch-all for smaller items like candles, soaps, or even the couple’s wedding album.
Elegant personalized bag
For a more elegant option, try using a personalized gift bag. This is a great way to add a touch of class to the bag, and it’s sure to be appreciated by the couple. You could have the bag monogrammed with the couple’s initials, or you could have it personalized with their names and wedding date.
Donut bag with handles
This might be the most unique gift bag option on this list. For a fun and tasty twist, try using a donut bag with handles. This is perfect for holding smaller items like candles, soaps, or even a small plant. You could also use it as a catch-all for smaller items like candles, soaps, or even the couple’s wedding album. Great for the sweet tooth couple!
