As you see, you only need a piece of paper, better if it is a coloured paper, whatever you like. Then, you have to fold it in 4 similar rectangles, follow the steps shown. After that, glue the top and bottom quarter and you will have the bag shape. Now, the most important thing is to make the bottom to have a 3D piece and be able to put something inside it. The measure used in the video is “three fingers”, or the equivalent, 4’5 cm or 1,77 inches.

Finally, you can fold the top of the bag like a fan, a paper fan and then you can push the center and make a bow shape. to close the paper bag, use a ribbon and tie it with a bow.
