When my parents were first married inthey lived in a basement apartment, the ceiling crisscrossed with pipes. He put them in little brown paper bags and hung them with string on the pipes. When Mom came home from work, she was greeted with all these little bags of surprises.
We had paper bag birthdays from that point on! Decorating paper bags As children, my brother Andrew and I would draw pictures on the bags or paste cutouts from construction paper, magazines, and old greetings cards. Our mother Elizabeth hated to wrap presents, so eventually she wanted to convert Christmas to paper bags, too.
Andrew and I resisted. To us kids, Christmas meant Christmas wrapping paper! A compromise So we compromised: We proved to be ahead of our time, because at some point, Hallmark stores and others began to offer their own paper bags printed with their own logos, Christmas themes, or fun graphics.
This was long before the commercially available, sturdier paper gift bags we can purchase today. But we only allowed Christmas themed bags at our house. We also saved gift boxes of different sizes and covered them with Christmas paper, old cards, etc.
The decorated paper bags and boxes could be used over and over and were saved from year to year. With the gifts under the tree in wrapping paper, the Christmas-y paper bags and the paper covered boxes, Christmas still looked festive.
A reusable Christmas bag can replace holiday wrapping paper. But even as a grown up, I still wanted some Christmas paper…about that time, I began to notice Christmas fabrics. I decided to surprise Mom with cloth Christmas bags.
A rectangle of fabric, folded in half and sewn to make a simple sack with an attached ribbon for tying it closed.
They had the satisfying festive look of Christmas paper. They made gift-wrapping super simple and they were compact to store. Some of these cloth bags we use every year are over 30 years old!
Now we all have collections of cloth Christmas bags, in different sizes to fit just about any gift.
