Make your own brown paper bag!

You can either use brown bags or make brown bags from brown craft papers. In case you’d like to make your bags, here’s a step by step tutorial for it. Simply follow the pictures in this collage and make your own brown bags for this craft. I used 8 inches X 6 inches brown paper to make the bags. You can adjust the size as you want. Determine the size you want for the bags and prepare a paper of double the size of the determined width and 2 inches extra added to the determined height. 

To make the gingerbread house bag, we are going to fold the top open part of the bag from both corners, towards the middle. This will form a triangle top.
