Easy Paper Bag Tutorial

Updated: Apr 21




Let's get crafty today!

Here's a simple paper bag tutorial. You can easily find all the supplies for this at home.



What you'll need:

  • Newspaper/any piece of paper (your bag size will depend on the paper size)

  • Glue/Tape

  • Ruler



Step 1

  • Take a double sheet of newspaper and generously apply glue to one side.

  • Fold the paper in half and use a ruler to flatten it and stick it well.

  • Skip this step if you are using a thick sheet of paper.




Step 2

  • Fold a 2-inch line across the bottom of the paper (red line).

  • Now fold the big section in half(yellow line) to meet the red line.

  • Glue the 2-inch fold to the folded big section to form a pocket for your bag.

  • Let it dry.




Step 3

  • Now flip the paper so the pockets are on the top and bottom.

  • Fold the bottom of the pocket to close one side.



Step 4

  • Fold the edges as shown in the figure to form a hexagon with two triangles inside it.

  • Flatten and fold the triangles formed firmly using the ruler.









Step 5

  • Fold the top and bottom edge of the hexagon so they overlap each other.

  • Glue them securely.

  • You can also glue a piece of rectangular paper to secure the bottom even more.

  • Let it dry.






Step 6

  • Put your hand through the open end of the bag to open it up and check if it is secure.

  • Your bag is now ready to be decorated!

  • This bag can be used to carry lightweight items and can even be used to dispose of dry waste.




Decorate your bag however you like!

Use your imagination
