Step 1: Materials

For your lunch bag, you will need the following:
-Duct Tape
-A small brown paper bag, such as the ones from stores that sell things such as soaps and put them in the little bags.

Step 2: Wrap 'er Up

The first part you want to cover is the bottom.  Cover it so it has an evenly placed layer and is just starting to creep up on the sides, as shown below.

Step 3: Wrap 'er Up Again

Now Start to wrap up the sides.  Don't worry about going all the way around because at the end you will create a "seam" by placing a vertical piece of duct tape to cover it all up.

Step 4: Add the "Seems"

Finally, you will add a piece of duct tape to the sides where the brown paper is poking out.  The vertical piece of duct tape will cover the last of the paper making the bag just short of indestructible.  I made one in March of my freshman year of high school and now in my senior year of high school I am still using it.  I have not had to add any tape to it in the time that I have been using it.  It is fantastic, if I do say so myself.

    It may seem like a "seem", but actually, it's a "seam"...
