How to make a paper bag

Today, I made some paper bags for a customer.
So I'd like to write how to make a paper bag. I used some pages of magazines.
(1)Cut two pages from a magazine.

(2)Paste the edges of two pages together.

(3)Fold each side of the bag in same width. In this case, I folded in 1 inch.

(4)Tuck down each side.

(5)Fold the bottom of the bag. In this case, I folded in about 2 inches.

(6)Open the bottom.

(7)And fold it like the pictures.

Then, paste it.

(8)You did it! I love this one very much because I love tomatoes!!!!

I made five bags today.

Thank you for reading my poor English instruction.
I hope you like it.

Thank you for the tutorial, it is easy to understand. The bags look lovely--and delicious!

ML said...

I think I can do that!
Thank you so much for the great instructions.
And yes, that bag does look very delicious!!!
The tomatoes are so yummy looking. I remember the tomato you bought on your trip to the US when you blogged about it.

Lin said...

Thank you, they are lovely!

mairuru said...

Hi Donna, ML, Lin!
Thank you very much! I love tomatoes very much so when I found this page, I soon began to make the bag.

What a useful tutorial! I was looking for a way to package some small gifts, and this is the perfect way.

I have been following your blog for a while, and I enjoy it very much, but I never commented. Thank you for this and all of your lovely and interesting posts.

Surya said...

I'm so thankful for this tutorial. I was searching for this from a very long time. Let me try it. I'll let you know how it turned out.

mairuru said...

Hello Surya,
Thank you for your comments! It's easy to make this bag and please show me!

I had been looking for instructions on this very topic. So happy to find yours. Am I "direction challenged" as far as following instructions is concerned? Everyone seemed to think that they were so easy to follow!! I am having trouble with the following two parts: Did you take two sheets of magazine pages, place them on top of each other, and glue them together on two edges - right and left sides? And, I am not sure exactly how you glued the bottom together after folding the bottom up 2 inches and "opening it up". What happens to the triangular corners?

mairuru said...

Hello Semajrn,
Thank you for your comment.
I used two pages to make this bag. But sometimes I make a bag from a piece of paper.
And about the bottom, when I fold the first side, I put some glue on the corner only. Then, when I fold the other side, I put some glue on the corner and the line which laps over to the other side.
Could I explain well ...???

PM said...

i've been searching for a step by step guide on this and I'm so glad i came across your blog!

Alice said...

Holly said...

This is exactly what I had been looking for! Your instructions are very good, it doesn't even matter too much what you say in this case because the pictures say it all!

The paper products manufacturing industry has witnessed a huge demand for products with the changing patterns of consumer behavior. The use of plastics has reduced considerably due to the health and the environment. This in turn has increased the consumption of different types of paper products such as stationery, photo frames, kites, magazines, banknotes, catalogs, cards, tissue paper, disks and directories.
