If You don’t want to spend extra money for a paper bag – just do one by yourself. 
1. Fold both sides of sheet of paper (50cm/35 cm) to meet in the middle.
2. Stick the double side glue tape on the edge of the paper and put both sides together 

 3. Fold the bottom part about 5 cm wide.
4. Open it and crease the flaps inward.

5. Fold both flaps in the middle.
6. Stick the tape across the bottom of the bag.

7. Stick a piece of tape in the place where You gonna make holes. Then punch holes through the top of the bag. Use ribbons to make handles.
