Paper Tote Bag Video Tutorial
Watch along with this video I created for all the details on making these bags, or keep reading for measurements and other info.
Materials To Prepare
To create one of these paper tote bags, you’ll need the following:
- 5″ x 8″ cardstock
- 1″ x 9″ cardstock
- 1″ x 11″ cardstock
- 4 1/2″ x 11″ designer paper
- 4 1/2″ x 9″ designer paper
- 2 – 1″ x 12″ designer paper
The designer paper I used on the bag above is from our Pattern Party paper pack, which is full of designs that are fun and bright on one side, and black and white on the other side. I am in love with them! They are a host exclusive, which you can get for hosting a Facebook party with me or by ordering $150 yourself or between you and a few friends.
What can you fill these bags with? I created three different assortments for a recent craft fair. They included:
My little girl tote bags included a notebook, sticker book, cute hand sanitizer, and fuzzy headband.
My faith bags included a notebook with an inspirational quote on the front, a magnet with a Bible verse on it, a mini calendar, and a highlighter.
The pampering sets I created included a face mask, foot scrub and cream, pedicure set, and bar of soap.
There are so many other ideas for these. Personalize them for everyone on your Christmas list!

Your links are not “in blue” so when I click on it, it does not work. What am I doing wrong?
Hi Joy, do you mean the link for the video? I think I fixed it, so try again. Please let me know if it still isn’t working. Thank you!
Video still not working… looks like fun, though!
Technical problems today! We are trying to get it fixed.
