You will need:
Downloaded bag pattern
Sheet of photo-copier paper
Bakers twine for the bag handle
Double-sided tape
Sweets or gifts to fill the bag
Hole punch

This is what you do:
1  Print the bag pattern onto photo-copier paper.

2  Cut out the bag shape following the solid lines on the printout.

3  With the printed side of the bag facing you, work along the larger dashed lines, making folds on the front side of the bag.

4  Again, working from the printed side, fold on the smaller dashed lines, making the creases on the reverse side of the paper.

5  Put double-side tape on the single white panel at one end of the bag. This should be attached to the underside of the double white panel at the other end of the bag.

6  Tape the bottom of the bag together.

7  Fold in the top edge of the bag.

8  With a hole punch make two holes on the top edge of the bag, on the front and back.

9  Cut lengths of bakers twine and thread though the holes in the bag, finishing each with a knot.

10  If desired, sew a button on each side over the printed button.
