I order the bags from Paper Mart. I buy in bulk, it is more affordable. I do the Square 1 Art fundraiser every year. I use about $150 in bags. It is worth it to me, the ceramics gets home safely! Much less breakage! I buy the gift wrap from Hobby Lobby. It is the best paper! Very thick and lined on the back. Perfect for chopping up and using to decorate. I find plenty of red and green but make sure there are some other colors as well. I cut 8" wide strips and then chop it up in 1"pieces. I leave a whole box full at each table. The kids love it! They could create for hours!!!
My students feel great leaving with a work of art as a gift and a bag that has been created special for the person they are giving it to. A great way to end first semester!
