Steps in Making Your Own Eco Bag

What a good way it is to give back and be good to Earth when we are being eco-friendly? That includes using eco bags, reusable things and skipping the use of plastics.

Of course, we don’t want to live in a world where we are going to eat whatever plastic is lying around… 20 30 50  or so years from now. That is why as art enthusiast we highly recommend to use or make your own eco-bag instead of asking for plastic bags when shopping for either grocery or for your personal things.

Today, we will awaken the artsy in you and help you create an eco-friendly tote bag or otherwise known as eco-bag.

Prepare Your Materials

You will basically need to prepare all your art materials first including the obvious scissors, glue stick and pen. for the bag we are making we can either make use of an old newspaper, an old denim jeans (large one) or any old unused clothing or material you prefer.

Measure and Cut

Measure the kind of length of the bag that you wanted and cut accordingly, do it neatly. A good measuring tool, tape measure, can help you sort that out cleanly.

Sticking and Folding

Stick the two materials together using double-sided tape, or you can also use clothing glue for that matter. Depending on the type of material you are going to use. Next is to fold them.

Tape the Base or Cardboard

Cardboard or any material you prefer as a base, tape it at the bottom for support to ensure that your eco bag won’t fall out.

Put it all together

Once you are done ensuring all the possible fall out corners of the bag, then your bag is good as ready for your next shopping! Nice art you got there!
