A few pieces of cardboard recovered, a little fabric and here is how to make a bag of cardboard: the most beautiful effect … simple to match it to his clothes!
The fold you see on the card is the bottom of the cardboard.
Draw the side of the cardboard using a pattern on which you will have drawn the rounded shape you want to give alongside the bag.
I used a grid paper to draw this round.
Make both sides of the bag
Reproduce both sides of the bag. Reproduce both sides of the bag.
Attention: for both parts to have the same height, reproduce the second by placing the cardboard as shown in the picture. (On the angle of a table)
The second part must be slightly smaller than the first one since it is bottom will be placed above that on the first side.
Assemble without sticking
Place the two bottoms one above the other and check that they are the same author.
See below what this gives open.
Choose the fabric
Choose the fabric and cut out 2 rectangles of fabric.
To know the height: plan 10 cm more than the height of the bag
To know the width: plan 6 cm more than the width of the open bag.
Glue the fabric to the bottom of the bag
Glue the fabric on the bottom of the bag (part 1) creating 2 folds.
Think about sticking the bottom edge of the bag.
Glue the fabric … more
Glue the fabric to the other side of the bottom. Then stick the second side of the bag on the first.
It ” encloses ” the bonding of the fabric.
Paint the inside of the carton. You can also choose a paper and paste printed paper inside the case.
Then glue the fabric over the edges of the bag.
Paint the rings
Paint the curtain rings in white.
Making small handles
Make small handles (sewing them or tights with the iron with thermal tights for hems) The ones you
see here are 15cm on 4cm.
These small handles will keep the ring in the bag.
Cover the bag
Cover the paper bag of your choice. Allow the paper to overflow inside the bag.
Glue the rings
Place the rings in the small handles made in step 8 and then stick them in the bag.
Glue a strip of fabric to each side of the bag.
Decorate the bag
I made yo-yo flowers here that I stuck on the bag. Then I added ribbon on the outline of the bag.

The handles can be made of cloth, ribbon or cords … it’s your choice.
