bLOGInternet is one of the most beautiful things if you decide to use in the right way. We found this amazing blog which takes the paper bags we make and the paper bags all of you use to the completely next level.

We are thinking of adding this as an add on in all our paper bags. Let us know what do you think about it.

Materials: brown bag, scissors, white office paper, thread (embroidery or book binding), awl (or safety pin), watercolors to decorate, ruler

Step 1: Take 5 pieces of white office paper.
Step 2: Rip it in half with a ruler.
Step 3: Fold those in half.
Step 4: Cut out a piece of brown paper bag to fit the exact shape of the folded paper.

Step 5: Fit the office paper in the brown bag.
Step 6: Measure 5 holes evenly across the middle crease of the paper.
Step 7: Poke it with an awl or safety pin.
Step 8: Thread a needle and start binding by entering from the inside to outside of the middle hole. Leave about 2″ extra in the inside cover. There’s a larger picture below to show you more details of the pattern of the threading.

Step 9: I hope these drawings make sense below. The dotted lines mean the thread goes on the outside of the book and the solid lines show from the inside. The numbers indicate the sequence.
Step 10: When you get back to one, cut it off leaving about 2″ and then tie the first thread to the end thread.

To add some flourish, add some drawings or watercolor. I decided to add small lines of colors with watercolors.
