DIY Framed Love You Gift Bag Sign

1.  Begin by opening up your bag and cutting off the part you wish to frame.  Don’t cut down the seam of the bag, but instead, cut down the side of the bag to allow for overlap. 

2.  Set your miter saw to 45 degrees.  Cut off the end of the wood at 45 degrees.

3.  Line up the piece to your bag and measure the length of the wood and then cut at 45 degrees.  Note:  When you cut, make sure the blade is on the outside edge of your line.  This will make sure you cut your piece just slightly bigger than needed and then you can trim and adjust to the exact length you need. 

4.  Repeat with all sides.

5.  Line up each piece of the frame.  Use a flat surface to push the wood up against to ensure you have a good fit.  

6. Paint the wood with desired color (chalkboard paint is pictured). Painting both sides is optional but it make for a nicer finish when both sides are painted.

7. Once your bag has dried, line up the frame over the bag. Once you have the bag lined up properly, hot glue the bag in place.

Optional: Cover the back of the frame with a thin piece of plywood, butcher paper or fabric.

So, personal confession: I’m not this crafty with hammer and all.  I am more of a paper-scissor type crafter. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’ve been storing all these ideas on my Pinterest board, but kind of afraid to actually use tools to craft. This would be a great first step for me. So cute & doesn’t look super hard.

    I am not really crafty too, but your project came out really beautiful. I will have to keep those pretty shopping bags and ask my sons to help me with a project like this.

    This is awesome! I have a ton of gift bags that I have saved over the years thinking I would reuse them. For the most part, I do, but it seems like I have a ton that would make a better framed gift.

    This would be a great way to use gift bags that are on their last legs. I have gotten some really pretty ones over the years and felt bad throwing them away.
