Supplies: Glue, Scissors, Paper Doiles, Newspapers, and Wire Ribbon

Step 1: Cut into rectangular sheet of paper and then press twice the leading newspapers in the Middle as shown on the picture

Step 2: Use glue fixed two edge paper overlap

Step 3: Fold one end securely to the bottom of the bag

Step 4: You fold the side edge short and long edges paste twice in photos to form bottom bag

Step 5: Wait for the glue to dry

Step 6: Place treats inside the bag

Step 7: Fold the remaining margin 2 cm down to form the mouth of bag
