DIY Vintage Wrapping No 2: Folded Paper Bag

If you are like me, and enjoy folded paper bags, you also know how expensive they can be to buy… and I don’t think I ever saw any nice Vintage printed ones… So why not print a few of my Vintage Digital Collage Sheets in A3 size and make your own:

Here’s some basic figures:

Instructions:

  • Glue your paper together to a “roll” with glue or double sided tape.
  • Eyeball what you want to be the front and back, and press down accordingly. The “seam” does not have to be in the middle of the back!
  • Fold a suitable piece of the bottom up.
  • Fold the corners in.
  • Open the bottom according to Fig. 7
  • Fold down a little more than half of part A
  • Repeat with part B.
  • Glue the folded pieces A & B to shut the bottom of the bag (glue or double sided tape)
  • If you want to reinforce your bag, you can cut a piece of cardboard slightly smaller than the bottom and insert into the bag.
  • Fill your goodies/gift into the bag and close it however you fancy 🙂

I punched two holes in the top of my bag and tied it with some twine.

Here’s a tall skinny bag, suitable for a bottle:
