Required tools and supplies:

  • X-acto knife and fresh blade
  • Detailing scissors
  • Good cutting mat
  • Metal straight-edge ruler to use to press against and make perfect creases
  • Tweezers
  • Fast-grab, quick-dry white craft glue that dries clear and a small piece of aluminum foil to use as a glue pot
  • A small artist's paint brush to apply glue

Instructions for Flour and Sugar Packs:

1. Cut and fold bag as shown here. Both the flour and sugar bags are constructed the same way.

If you are unsure of yourself and want a practice piece first, merely trace the unit on plain paper before cutting pieces. Make a practice unit with the plain trace.

2. Glue the side seam. Use tweezers to press the bond.


3. Glue the front and back pointed panels. There are four in all. See the second photo here for details. The glued edges do not need to be perfect, as demonstrated here.

4. Overlap the two squared-off tabs and glue into place. Repeat for similar tabs on bottom of bag.

5. Glue down pointed tabs on both the top and bottom of bag. You may need to hold these tabs in place while they dry.
