how-to: recycled newspaper bags

here is my promised how-to for my newspaper out of town bags. i have to say, one of the biggest issues with this project for the purpose i intend on using them is the content of the newspapers i was using. if you live in a big city and have any free entertainment newspapers like the boston phoenix or the la weekly you know that the back pages usually list a specific set of services that may not be grandma appropriate - so just remember to look first!

  1. I'm going to have a go at this later i think, thank you kristy - i know the theory of the shape of bags like these but i've tried 3 times with changes on each one and its not working. then i remembered you wrote thise!
    i want to make them from brown paper for sweeties for the children at our wedding, so I'm going to scale it down a bit but keep the principle the same. thank you!
