Teachers, are you looking for an inexpensive and easy craft project for your students?  

This is a quick and easy way to make gift bags or gift envelopes!

You will need  glue sticks,  scissors,  wrapping paper, wall paper, or other paper.  You can use recycled paper!  

Step 1    Cut your paper or use a sheet      of left over paper.  The sheet of paper needs to be at least twice the width of      the bag to be created. 

Step 2   Folder the sides toward the middle, allowing 1/2 over lap. 

Example: For this 5"x11" bag, I used a sheet of paper 10  1/2 inches by 12 inches

 

 

 


Step 3
 
Apply glue along the bottom inner edge and the edge
of one of the folded sides.

 

Step 4   Fold the other side of the bag over onto the top of the glued edge.  Rub your hands along the glued edges to seal.


Step 5   Apply glue to the inside and    outside bottom edge of the bag
 

Step 6   Rub you fingers along the bottom glued edge to seal.
