Cut out the template
This bit is really self explanatory as you start...you need to fold in the same places as the box was folded...basically the folds need to be where the notches are. Use the bone folder to crisp the folds as you go - To get the bag to 'sit' better and look more professional - when you have done all the folds, put an extra crease in the side panel (shown below) ASSEMBLY
Start with the side seam, run a glue stick along the edge shown below and attach as shown. I have had limited success with just the glue so I used invisible (ha!!) sticky tape on the inside.
Now you can close up your bag so your gifts don't plop out of the bottom.....:)
Fold in like the pic below
Above shows what your bottom should look like(leave it angel!!)...I used the invisible sticky tape to hold this at the bottom.If you are using it for something heavy - I would recommend covering a piece of cardboard with same paper to fit in the bottom of the bag for extra strength.
Fold over the top flaps and tape down.
Thats it basically done.
Use a hole punch to make holes for the ties. A single if you just want a tie.A double if you want to make handles.
Easy and Peasy as my 3 year old would say lol!! I hope that was straightforward and useful. Phew!!Off to bed now - happy bag making. Xx
