Lay the paper bag on a flat surface. Cut two ribbon pieces the width of the bag.

Press the ribbon pieces to the Glue Lines.
Open the paper bag and fill it with the gift items.
Fold the top of the bag down. Punch two holes in the folded down portion of the bag.
Thread the twine through the holes. Tie the apple shape with the twine.
