Here we have described two craft instructions for you in detail, with which you can make yourself a mini school bag. The instructions are including pictures and a craft template for the bag shape.

At the beginning of school, at the beginning of a new stage of education or for professional changes, sugar packets are perfect gifts and decorative elements. Often, the small bags are also suitable as elements of a table decoration, which is why you also like to be able to turn something smaller. Of course you can also fill and give away these school bags. But you should then place large gifts in a large bag of sugar.

Step 3: Now fold the two corners, which have not yet been folded, inwards along the fold from step 2. The result is a dragon form. Open these folds again.

Step 4: Fold the point that points up here, down to the starting point of the two folds from step 3.

Step 5: Now fold the construct together. Lift the paper and fold it backwards at the diagonal from step 2. The tip from step 4 is outside.
