Brown Bag Gift Wrapping

I don't know about you, but I don't have wrapping paper for every different occation. Recently I ran out of everything but Christmas paper and I need a quick wrapping solution. Here's what I came up with...

A brown bag, a tag made of scrap paper, and some hemp to tie it shut. I've used this idea a few times now because it is sooo easy!
Another idea I had, make a few baby gifts ahead of time, put 'boy' tags on the baby boy gifts...

and 'girl' tags on the baby girl gifts. Then when the time comes I just write on the name and I'm ready! (Instead of scrambling and getting a gift there weeks late)

 Here's a bag I put together for a birthday party gift.

and some for party favor snacks. (it was a monster party).

Have fun wrapping!
