The ladies in my office needed sanitary disposal bags (SDB from now on), and since I do the ordering, I didn't want to waste money on such a frivolous thing. Even though we have a waste receptacle, the custodians were squeamish about seeing feminine products in the feminine product trash can..... So, time for a solution. We had old magazines and regular office supplies, so I cobbled them together to make these simple, 1-minute tops SDBs.
Razor blade/box cutter/scissor
Scissor (if not used in prior step)
Difficulty Level: Easy
Time from start to finish: 1-2 minutes
Step 1: Cut Out Pages
Step 2: Fold the Page(s)
Cut a half circle or trapezoid (whatever floats your boat) into the top of one side. This is so you can easily open it. I do mine about 1-1/2" to 2" at the deepest point.
Then invert the fold so you have a "valley fold."
Step 3: Staple & Tape
Use about 5-6" of tape on the open side. It does not need to go all the way to the top or bottom - in fact, I recommend it especially doesn't go all the way to the top. (It makes it easier to fill the bag with your 'goodies'.)
