Paper bag in a jifty

Pin It

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.

Like this

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.
