Template for the paper bag.
It looks nice to me alright. Something I would personally do as paper bags for my gifts to just about anyone. I also include one of my template for 11cm x 8cm x 3cm. Its a default template I can offer for a A4 size paper. But you can scale it up to make a bigger gift bag using the same ratio.
Tutorial On Making The Gift Bag.
Scale up the template to the size required and transfer / print out the pattern onto the decorated paper. Cut out carefully using knife / scissor. Score lightly along the back of the crease so that they will fold more easily. Fold down and glue the flaps along the top edge of the bag.
Next, glue the long, side tab to form a bag shape.
Then glue the base of the bag, folding in the short end tabs first.
Form the pleats down the sides of the bag by pressing the long edges together gently so that the paper is pushed inwards.
Using the hole punch, make two holes on each of the top sides near the top edge. Cut two short length of ribbon and thread each end through the holes to make two looped handles. Knot the ends at the back of the holes to secure.
Done! There you go, a gift bag suitable for any occasion.
