Washi Tape and Paper Bags

Aren't these cute?

I'm planning on tossing a few Hershey Kisses and some mini candy-canes in these as little, last minute gifts for kiddos.  They are quick and easy to make.

I went with a green-on-green scheme. 

Start with a piece of paper.  I used green printer paper.  Cut to size.

I cut mine in half.  They're 8.5 x 5.5 inches.

Fold, almost at the 2/3 point.

Fold the other half over to overlap the edge by about a half inch.

Secure with Washi Tape.

Fold the bottom up about an inch.

Open it back up and trim off the top part.  You don't have to do this but it makes it a bit lumpy if you don't!

Re-fold up that flap.  Add a piece of tape to extend to the bottom of the bag.

Run a strip of Washi tape along the edge to secure.


I cut the top edge of the bag to dress it up a bit.  I used this:

You put your edge in and punch it.  This is too long. . .
Line up the cut edge to the outline.  This will ensure that everything is continuous.
Your bag is finished!

This is a great way to give a gift card!


  1. Very cute! I especially like how you've punched the top. I'll have to give these a go sometime. :)

  2. We can make different types of designs while using papers. Most probably craft artists are using papers for various designs and projects; here also we have found that how artists are using papers to make unique and innovative designs. I hope the above collection helps us to get latest and fresh ideas about paper design.
