Repurpose Wine Bags For More Gift Uses

IMG_7371We drink wine. We give parties. A LOT of wine gifts come thru our door, no complaints! The wine bags? I often repurpose them into smaller gift bags.  Here is the easy 1, 2, 3…

Start with a bag that has a design you can cut through and it won’t matter.


Remove the ribbon – I just cut it.


Flatten the bag and cut to the size you want; you need an extra inch at the top to fold again.


Fold the top inch back in; make a crisp fold.


Using a hole punch, make new holes to restring your ribbon.  My “new” holes went through the extra folds, but not necessary.


Restring the ribbon, or add fresh ribbon.  I’m cheap, I used the old stuff.


Voila, new little gift bag!

I have zillions of wine bags too and had started tossing them out. Now I know how to recycle them! Thank you!
