I was making goodie bags for my daughters birthday. I really wanted some of those cute wax paper bags that you can buy online. Unfortunately I didn't have enough time to order them before the party, so I decided to make my own. These are so versatile and turned out so cute. I will definitely be doing it again.
Step 1: Get your roll of wax paper and cut it into long rectangles about 8 inches wide and 16 inches long. This is variable. You can make the bag whatever size you need for what you are putting in it. These are just the measurements I made them.
Step 2: Fold the wax paper in half so it should now look like a square (mine were about 8 inches by 8 inches).
Step 3: I decided to stamp a Thank You on the front of each bag. I used black ink and a cute stamp that had some little butterflies on it. The stamp will smear if you touch it right away. I stamped mine and let them dry overnight. They didn't smear after it dried. So stamp all of your bags.
Step 4: After letting your stamps dry, take the bag and sew a straight line along 3 sides of the bag. You could use different color thread, whatever you want.
Step 5: Fill up your bag with whatever you want.
Step 6: Sew across the top of the bag so it is now sealed on all sides.
That's it! You've got an adorable, custom made, wax paper goodie bag!
