Ribbon Apple Gift Bag


This is an updated version of giving an apple to your teacher. Use Scotch® Packing Tape to create this cute ribbon apple gift bag that can be filled with goodies or a gift to show appreciation for your teacher. This is my latest design for Scotch.

Difficulty – Easy


  • Small brown paper sack – 3-1/2 x 6-3/4 inch (available at crafts stores)
  • Brown cord
  • 1/8 inch wide red satin ribbon
  • 1 square rhinestone
  • Green textured cardstock
  • Scotch® Precision Scissors
  • Scotch® Removable Double Sided Tape
  • Scotch®  Quick Dry Tacky Glue  
  • Scotch® Packing Tape
  • Scotch® Magic Tape


  1. Find or draw a picture of an apple and cut out with Scotch® Precision Scissors. Cut two 3 inch long pieces of Scotch® Packing Tape. Attach the two pieces together by overlapping the long edges about 1/8 inch to create a wider piece.
  2. Apply pieces of ribbon to the adhesive side of the packing tape to create wide ribbon.

  3. Attach the apple template to the shinny side of the ribbon covered packing tape with Scotch® Removable Double Sided Tape and cut out the apple shape.

  4. Attach the ribbon apple to the front of the bag with Scotch® Quick Dry Tacky Glue — gluing the shinny side of the apple to the bag. Cut a leaf from the green cardstock and a stem from the brown cord.

  5. Attach the leaf and the cord stem to the apple with Scotch® Quick-Dry Tacky Glue. Apply glue the square rhinestone and attach the apple to add a sparkly shine.
  6. Fill the bag with goodies and fold over towards the back about 1 ½ inch. Tape closed with Scotch® Magic Tape.
