  • Glitter foam sheets

How to Make a Gift Bag

Step 1:

Trace and cut out a rectangle-shaped paper from any colored craft paper you’d like for the paper bag. Mine was 5 inches X 8 inches.

Step 2

Keeping 1 cm intact on either end of the long side, fold the rest of the paper into half. Fold and glue the 1 cm part with the rest of the folded paper to close that side.

Step 3

Fold up 2 inches from either open ends of the folded paper.

Step 4

Keeping the fold of the bottom part secured, open up the bottom side and flatten the 2 sides neatly. This will create 2 flap-like patterns on the top and bottom side of the flattened pattern.

Step 5

Hold any one of the flaps and fold it towards the middle line of the bottom part. Fold the other flap and fold it towards the middle line of the bottom part by slightly overlapping the first folded flap. Glue the overlapped parts to secure the bottom side of the paper bag.

Create folds along both sides of the bag. Match the opposite corners of the squares on the bottom side of the bag to make sure that the folds are done neatly.
