Glue the overlapping flaps.
Step 3: Fold the Base
Score the base of the bag at 1 1/2".
Fold the bottom, open and press flat creating triangle shapes on each side.
Bring the sides towards the middle line making sure they overlap a bit. Glue.
Step 4: Sides
Score the sides at 1/2".
For shaping the sides open the bag and pinch the scored lines creating like a V shape.
Step 5: Handles
For the handles add a bit of ribbon through the existing holes.
Add some tissue paper inside to finish.
