I looked all over the web for the origami gift bag instructions for the Mini Boo Bag I made yesterday. I thought it would be way easier to point you in that direction rather than to write out a long tutorial. However, I could not find a single tutorial. Since it would take me hours to write one out I thought I would do a Vlog instead.

IMG_0559 So bear with me, this is what I look like after a long day at home with the kids…

These are just the right size for the “boo bags” because they are small and only fit a few candy bars in it. I am cheap like that so I thought it was perfect.

I typed out the Boo poem in a “Halloweenish” font and singed the edges with a lighter to make it spookalicious.

I am pretty certain I am having more fun than Isaac. Did you hear me giggle at the end??? I am such a kid.

  18. I still have an unopened origami kit I bought long time ago, Beckie you just spark my interest again. These bags will be great also for gift bags, it can be easily customized. I like the vlog for somebody like me who is really bad at reading instructions.

    I would appreciate if a staff member here at http://www.infarrantlycreative.net could post it.


  23. I had no problem viewing (and re-viewing :D) the gift bag video! THANK YOU! I already made one and can't wait to make more!! I am obsessed with your blog (my husband ~ not so excited LOL) hehe!

  24. I just wanted to thank you for this great craft. I was looking for a Halloween craft for Teen Volunteers at the Library where I work, and this was perfect! A little folding, a dash of ribbon, and some treats–what could be better?!?

  25. I found your blog when I was looking for origami patterns. I always put an origami creation in my grandchildren’s cards and letters, and was looking for bags, purses, wallets, boxes this time. I came across your gift bag and LOVE LOVE LOVE it. I made one little tiny one (using 6″ paper) and it turned out adorable. Can’t wait to do more of them. Little ones like this would be so cute hanging on a Christmas tree, filled with little peppermints or a pine cone or something else. Thank you for sharing your directions.

  26. Awesome, well I hope you will stick around. That is my only origiami project but I have a ton of other craft ideas. I bet a tiny bag would be adorable on the Christmas tree, good thought. Thanks for letting me know you enjoyed my project.
