DIY gift packaging is easy and not that expensive to make. If you are a crafter then you likely have every thing you need in your stash. I like to use my scraps from card making and scrapbooking to make the toppers on the plastic pouch. I get the plastic pouches from Oriental Trading Company. I happen to be a blogger for them so they are my go to resource for supplies.
I treat the plastic pouch just like I would a card front and add layers and dimension with twine and bling. Sometimes simple strips of paper can be the easiest and you can make multiples in one sitting. Figure out the dimensions for your package and add layers of pattern and solid paper that are separated by 1/4 or 1/2 inch increments.
A few small details like crystal stickers added in the corner give it additional volume and really make it look more expensive. I like to use the preprinted thank you pennants from Oriental Trading. They are perfect for gift packaging and cards.
