DIY GOODIE BAGS


Goodie bags are simple and inexpensive to make. Here is how you can make goodie bags using leftover gift wrappers. You can make different styles of goodie bags. The first time I made this bag, it seemed little confusing and hard, but later, it was really easy towards the end ;). I am very fond of collecting these goodie bags, so I wanted to try making it. Now lets go with materials required -                                        
MATERIAL REQUIRED 

  1. Gift wrapper ( but you can also make with wax paper or news paper)
  2. Ruler
  3. Pencil 
  4. Ribbon or Paper twist 
  5. Scissors
  6. Tape
  7. Heavy duty glue. 

METHOD

Step 1: Cut the paper to 24" x 14"and lay it down with the shorter ends making up the sides and long edge top and bottom.

Step 2: Now fold the left side of the paper to 1/2 inch.

                                       

Step 3: Measure 4" and make a crease.Bring the folded end to the crease.

                               

      
Step 4: Now measure 7 3/4 inches from the inside crease,  mark and make another crease there.Measure 4" from there to make a new crease.


Step 5: Fold the 4 inches into two halves.The remaining paper on right side should measure 7 3/4 inches. 

                            

Step 6: Now fold the bottom of the paper into 3 inches.

Step 7: Starting from the right side make a slit along the first,third and fourth crease up to the bottom line.
                              

Step 8: Now assemble the goodie bag using glue as shown below or refer the video tutorial mentioned in the bottom of the post.

                           
                               

Step 9: Set the bag aside while we will make the handle for the goodie bag as shown below: 
                               
         
Now the goodie bag is ready to be gifted to any party :) Do try and give us your idea and comments.
