There are two things in life that I will never understand: first, how a car engine works, and second, why gift bags are so freaking expensive. Why, oh, why are these disposable paper gift containers so pricey? Of course, the plain ones are usually within budget, but the pretty patterned ones with the trendy quotes and cute layered colors always tend to cost just about as much as the thoughtfully chosen goodies that goes inside the bag itself.
The good news is that we’re all crafty and DIY-inclined, so a boring, solid-colored gift bag is really just the first step for you and me.
