Let’s start with making the cover of the bag using newspapers. Take a newspaper and fold it from both the sides. Press the newspaper and you will get a paper with three sections traced.  Cut the second folding so you will get a newspaper folded from the centre. Again cut this fold with a scissor and you will get three equal sized sections of the newspaper.  Keep the newspaper long and lean to prepare a stylish handbag.

Now, open up the pieces and take a drinking straw. Place it to the corner of the paper and roll it with the newspaper. While rolling the paper, when you reach the end of the paper, apply some glue to the corner of the paper and continue rolling. This will make the paper stick easily to the newspaper.

Remove the straw from the paper roll and use it for rolling the other newspapers. Perform these steps for all the papers you trimmed in equal sections. This way, you will get multiple newspaper rolls using a single straw! Here you are done with a huge task now!

Take the newspapers rolls and press these rolls flat, one by one, press the rolls and make them thin and broad. Now take a single roll from this bunch and apply glue on it. One by one, stick all the rolls on this roll in a vertical manner. Arrange all the paper straws with glue and let it stick properly. Stick one paper roll on the bottom of that one roll while another on the top of the roll. This way you will get a stick loaded with paper rolls on both the sides.

Step 4-

Its time you become a little tricky now! When you get all the rolls glued properly place it on the table. Bend the rolls on the upper layer into the opposite direction. Bend every alternate roll in the opposite direction and thus, you will get these horizontal rolls upwards as well as downwards. Also apply some glue on the main roll to stick these oppositely bent roll properly.

Now, apply some glue on all the rolls on the main stick facing downwards. You need to stick this roll in the bottom and then cover it up with the rolls you just raised in the upwards direction. Apply glue and reverse the rolls which you glued in the upwards direction. This way, the second horizontal roll you glued will get tightly sandwiched between the vertical rolls and you will get a strong upper part of this entire construction!

You will get a thick and beautiful criss cross pattern which will give the handbag a strong base. Trim the extra ends and part form the edges when you get this mat like structure.

To give this mat a perfect finishing, stick the roll ends with glue and make it perfectly square. Cover all the 4 sides and make it look perfectly done! Also make 2 such small mats with newspapers for preparing the sides.

It’s time to use the small 2 mats for sealing the sides of this handbag. Bend the large mat and take the measurements of its side on the small mat and cut it with a scissor.

Give these sides a perfect finishing while sticking the ends but let some ends remain as it is. This will help you help you stick the sides to the handbag easily. Now, stick these sides in the interior of the folded bag thoroughly. Press it nicely and let I get dry.
