Supplies for everything needed to make this bat treat bag.

List of Supplies:

  1. Colored craft paper – black or grey or any colour of your choice
  2. White and pink coloured paper
  3. Craft glue
  4. Scissors
  5. Tape or Stapler
  6. Pencil – for tracing the template
  7. Template

A grey piece of construction paper folded.

Step 1

Firstly, select a craft paper for the project and cut out a rectangular piece out of it. I chose grey and mine was 12.5-inch x 7 inch. By keeping the 0.5 inch intact; fold the 12 inch into half. Remember, you can choose any colour you’d like!

Step 2

Secondly, apply glue along the 0.5 inch part. Fold and stick the glued part with the other open end of the folded rectangular paper.

Step 3

Fold up 2 inches of the current paper from any one of the open ends. Do not fold the closed ends.

Step 4

By keeping the paper on a flat surface, open the bottom of it from one side. This will create a triangular pattern on the side.

Step 5

Similarly, open the other side of the bottom and flatten the paper neatly. Now it has 2 open sides, like flaps.

Step 6

Hold any one of the open sides and fold half of it downwards, slightly overlapping the center line.

Step 7

Similarly, hold the other open side and fold half of it upwards, overlapping the previous side’s fold. Apply glue along the overlapped part to secure the bottom of the bag. Notice the 2 squares formed on both sides of the bottom.

The same grey paper is folded inwards on both sides.

Step 8

Create crease along the along the sides (left and right). Match the opposite corners of the squares on the sides of the bottom part to make perfect crease lines along the left and right. This will create crease lines on both the front and back side of the bag and a center line for each pair of creases.

Grey paper made into a bag and sealed.

Step 9

Unfold the folds created for the crease and carefully tuck the center line inwards. The open end can be secured by using clear tape or glue or staplers, whichever you prefer. Then the bag is ready!
