Apples will always make me think of my days as an elementary school teacher. Wouldn’t this be cute paper to use for a thank you gift to a teacher??
This bag is quite easy to make. You score a few lines, cut, add adhesive and you’re done! Start with a 6″ x 12″ piece of paper. On the 12″ side, score @ 4″, 5-1/2″, 9-1/2″ & 11″. On the 6″ side, score @ 4-1/2″ (this will be the bottom of your box so if you have a design on the paper, make sure it’s going the correct direction). Fold on all the score lines and cut up to the 4-1/2″ score line. See the picture below.
Next, on the front of the box, apply adhesive as shown in the picture below.
Turn your paper over to the inside of the box and place adhesive as shown. That one flap will hold the bottom together so add adhesive to the entire panel.
Now it’s time to put the box together. Bring the small flap with adhesive (on the end), over to the other side to form the box. To make the bottom of the box, bring in the two small flaps first, then the piece WITH adhesive. Close it up with the last flap which will be attaching to the adhesive.
You can use a clip as I did or leave it open. Below are two more samples. I didn’t decorate the one the left because I thought it looked so pretty with the peaches. All of the products I used to make my bags can be found at the bottom of the post.
