Gift Bag Tamer

Gift Bag Tamer

This recycled project shows you how to take a simple metal basket and turn it into a organizer for your gift bags.

What you need

Old wire basket and ribbon or elastic cord


Start by cleaning your basket if it is old or rusty, You may want to give it a coat of paint with spray paint.

String brightly colored ribbon across the openings, basically lacing the open side of the basket/tray with the ribbon, to hold in the bags.

I then hung my spool of ribbon from the bottom. Using two 10# picture hangers, I hung the Gift Bag Organizer in my craft/inspiration room.

It’s easy to grab a bag from either the top opening or between the ribbon.
