Taking a ruler, measure in 0.75″ from each side of the bag, and use a piercing tool to mark it as shown.

Cut two piece of 0.5″ x  6″ strips of paper and piece a hole on each end of both. These are the handles for the bag.

Push the brad through the hole at the top of the bag, then push the handle onto the brad legs on the inside. Twist the handle around to the brad on the other side and create a handle. Do this for both the front and back of the bag.

To close the bag at the bottom, push the two 1.5″ tabs inwards. Apply double sided tape to the outside of one flap, and the inside of the other, as shown.

Remove the tape backing, fold down the flap with the tape on the outside, and then the flap with the tape on the inside.
