Paper Bag Makeover Paper Bag Makeover Presentation Transcript

  • By GreenBeing Nancy http://greenbeingnancy.blogspot.com/ Paper Bag Transformation
  • Materials To Salvaged
    • Paper Bags
    • Cardboards
  • From these….
  • … to this.
    • My new book stand.
    • I have selected this
    • paper bag because I
    • love the lotus
    • design on it.
    • The book stand
    • height is determined
    • by the picture on the
    • paper bag, to ensure
    • that it will not be
    • cropped off.
  • Method
    • Keep the bag flat on the table.
    • Then cut the handle off with a pair of scissors
    • No measurement is required. Just cut it along the edge where the cardboard that form the top at both sides end.
  • Measure size for cardboard
    • Place the cut paper bag on top of cardboard to measure height for cardboard.
  • Check cardboard size
    • Cut cardboard to size required.
    • Place it inside the paper bag to ensure that it fits in nicely.
    • Cut another piece to the same size.
    • Insert both into sides of paper bag to confirm that they fit.
    • Do same for narrow sides of bag.
  • To form flap for neater finish.
    • If a neater finish is preferred, cut the cardboard so that it is about 6cm shorter than the paper bag.
  • To prepare flap.
    • Cut the paper bag at the top till it reaches the edge of cardboard.
    • Do the same for all 4 corners.
  • To fold flap.
    • Fold flap in half.
    • Fold it again, this time over the cardboard.
  • Trim to fit.
    • Trip the sides of flap if it does not sit in snugly into the box.
  • Seal flap to cardboard.
    • Use double sided tape and stick it to the flap as show here.
    • Remove the paper backing of tape and press over cardboard.
    • Do the same for all flaps.
    • That’s it. Your book stand is ready for action.
  • Can you use soft brown paper bag?
  • Yes, you can.
    • Take the cut out top and…
    • … open it up.
  • Reinforce the sides
    • Follow the same procedures for the 1 st book stand.
    • Then place the cut out top over the top of the bag as shown here.
    • You can staple the handle to top or punch holes to push the cords through.
  • Dual usage.
    • I can place it on the book shelf or…
    • … use it as a carrier.
  • So, before you throw…
    • Discover new uses.
