Cute as a button: This gift bag might be the easiest DIY ever

Pretty up a plain gift bag with buttons in similar shades or contrasting colors. The charm they add will make anything that's in the bag that much more special.
Just a pearl of glue is needed to affix each button to the bag, so a light touch with the glue gun wins out. Once the buttons adorn both sides of the bag, it will ooze charm. Magnify the pretty quotient by filling it with tissue in a harmonious hue. Since these are quick to make, you can easily whip up a dozen to hold birthday party favors or bring goodies to the next book club meeting.
