1 In order to make your own paper bags you can print the whole sheet of paper first or create the bag and then stamp your design onto it.
2.I used the whole width of the roll of paper but if you want a smaller bag you can cut it down. Put the paper proper side down and fold the lengths of the edges towards the centre but the need to overlap slightly. Run glue stick down the centre back and secure the bottom likewise. Once glued, fold the base up and stick into position.
3. I neatened the top with pinking shears just for added interest, The top can then be folded towards the front or back as you like. Once you have made the fold punch either one or two holes in it. You can then embellish it by threading ribbon through. Which bags do you like best?
I also really like them made with plain kraft paper.
