I did this paper bag as a school project work for my son. He wanted me to make something out of waste. I had this brochure which was nice and thick. I liked the color. So I decided to make use of it. I was just holding it in my hand and thinking what to do with it. I was trying to fold it in different ways and suddenly this idea struck me. So here is how I made the bag in simple steps.
This is the brochure that I had.
I folded it into half.
Then I folded one side
Then the other side on top of it.
This is how the bottom part looks.
I punched two holes at the top for the strings.
I selected coir ropes for the handles
I took the first three sheets together and inserted the rope through the holes and secured them by placing a knot as shown here.
Similarly the other side
Now one side of the bag was wide open.
So I used glue to close it shut
The bag is ready.
You can put some flowers into this cute bag and hang it on the wall.
