Do I have to add a ribbon tie to this DIY Father’s Day gift bag?

If you don’t feel comfortable tying a tie you can also draw a tie shape on paper and cut it out. Then glue or tape it to the folded bag. You could also make a tie from felt, fabric, or a craft foam sheet.

How else can I decorate this Father’s Day paper bag craft?

Instead of drawing the buttons on the bag you can use button stickers or glue real buttons or beads in place. For the pocket, you can cut one out of paper and glue it on. You can also decorate your bag with stickers or markers, creating a patterned dress shirt!
