Every now and then, we all struggle to plan a surprise for our loved ones. Some surprises last a day or two, but this paper craft bag holds precious memories that will last much longer.

I adore homemade gifts. They radiate happy memories. They remind of the beautiful times and how much our friends and family love us. 

This particular gift has all the emotions attached, it a perfect thing you can give to someone you love dearly. It can be made with very little time and money. Let’s get started.

Time Required: 15 minutes 

Difficulty Level: Easy

Stationery Supply: 

• A sheet of paper for bag (I am using bright pink)

• A black sheet of paper (You can use a white sheet and color it with a black marker)

• Ribbon (any color)

• A pair of scissors

• Glue or any other adhesive

• Five to six printed paper sheets (You can use plain sheets too)

this is all supplies we need

Craft is a therapy and this paper craft bag heals your heart.

Just remember every craft is unique - use your creativity, and let your imagination fly. 

  • 1st Step :- Take pink sheet (the one you have chosen for the bag) and fold it from the top.

Tip: I would suggest using a thick paper as the bag would not be strong enough with a thin sheet of paper.

Now make multiple folds and creases as shown in the picture below, so that you get an envelope like structure.

  • 7th Step :- Well, we are not done yet. We are yet to do something extraordinary.

Cut a hat, mustache, and bow tie from the black sheet of paper.

Note: You don’t have to be too particular about these shapes. Cut the shapes with a free hand. Also, make various modifications and try new patterns.
