Folding and Gluing

Wrapping paper bags are not only eco-friendly, but they are also incredibly easy to make. Once you have your wrapping paper ready, the next step is to fold and glue it to create the bag. In this section, we will provide a step-by-step guide on how to do just that.

Step-by-Step Guide

Step 1: Fold the Wrapping Paper

First, fold the wrapping paper in half lengthwise, with the patterned side facing inwards. Then, press down firmly on the crease.

Step 2: Fold the Bottom of the Bag

Next, fold the bottom of the paper up to the desired height of the bag. Make sure to leave enough paper at the top to fold down and close the bag.

Step 3: Fold the Sides of the Bag

Fold the sides of the paper inwards, towards the center crease. Make sure to crease the edges well.

Step 4: Glue the Sides of the Bag

Apply glue to the edges of the paper where you folded it inwards. Press the edges together firmly to secure them in place.

Step 5: Fold the Top of the Bag

Fold the top of the paper down, and crease it firmly. You can fold it down as much or as little as you like, depending on the size of the bag you want.

Step 6: Glue the Top of the Bag

Finally, apply glue to the edges of the top flap and press it down firmly to close the bag.
