My friend’s birthday is coming up soon, and I thought, “This is just the right time for another DIY!” (not to mention it is New Year and I have already made one just seconds ago) This DIY is going to be somewhat like one I made in October, called, Painted Storage Box. That one was very simple, yet turned out to be pretty good, and I’m sure this one will be too.
- Acrylic Paint of your choice of colors
- Ornate Tags
- 1 Paper Bag
- A Gift for Your Friend
1. Paint the paper bag with some acrylic paint (I prefer using only one or two colors). This will be the background. I added a little bit of swirls for some decoration. After you’re done painting, wait for a minute so the paint can dry.
2. Now choose one side of the bag and using a sponge, dab your friend’s age that he/she will be turning onto the bag. (If this is not a birthday bag that you are making then just leave it blank or do whatever you want with it.
3. Grab an ornate tag, and write: For: [Friend’s Name] From: [Your Name] with sharpies. Also don’t forget to write happy birthday (/whatever reason you’re giving this gift). After that, you can loop a string through it and tie it on the handle, stick it on, slip it in the bag, it doesn’t matter. I stuck it on because I ran out of string.
