Look no further as this DIY paper gift bag is perfect for wrapping your dad’s present for any occasion, not just on father’s day, but on Christmas and birthdays too.
Fathers are the first guardian of a child. They sacrifice just as much as mothers and they deserve love and gratitude not just for special days like birthdays, or Father’s Day, but every single day. You don’t need a reason to show your dad how much you love and care for him. Surprise him from time to time with a small gift, it will make him feel appreciated and important just like your mother.
If buying a gift for your father is out of the question, then you can choose to make something yourself. The following paper gift bag is a good idea to start with, but we have many other craft tutorials to choose from the links below.

Supplies Needed for making the paper shirt bag:
- Paper (Blue and Black)
Step 1 for father’s day gift bag
Take a blue color paper of 9×12 inches. The larger the paper the bigger the bag will be.
Put the paper on a table in the landscape position and bring the right side of the paper towards the left side leaving a 1cm gap on the left side and then fold the paper making a crease as shown below.
Unfold the paper and then fold inwards the 1cm space we left before. After folding the paper apply glue on the entire fold. Then again take the right side of the paper towards the left side and stick them together.
Now fold the bottom part of the paper upwards about 2 inches. Then bring the right and left corners towards the bottom edge as demonstrated below.
Undo both corners and open the bottom paper fold. Then flatten both sides creating two triangles. After that, fold the bottom edge upwards and a little beyond the middle. Then fold the top part downwards a little beyond the middle.
How to make a father’s Day gift bag
Now unfold the paper as shown below and then apply glue on the bottom right and left corners, then again fold upwards.
Apply glue on the top right and left corners including the top edge. Then fold downwards and stick them together.
Fold the right and left sides of the bag inwards in a way that the points of the base meet as shown below.
Now unfold your gift bag and open it out. Place your hand into the bag, gently open it up and define the edges.
Place your gift inside the bag then cut two slits on each side at the top of the bag. Then fold down both flaps to form a shirt collar shape and use glue to stick them nicely in a shirt design.
Draw a tie shape on a black piece of paper and cut it out, then use glue to attach it in the middle of the paper bag.
And the project is finally complete.
