For other patterns, you can use our design as a template: Trace it onto white paper, drawing fold lines between the dotted lines. Cut out, and trace again onto wrapping paper; score fold lines through the template.


  • Ruler

  • Bone folder

  • Scissors 

  • Glue

  • Waxed twine

  • Tissue paper


  1. Download and print template. Use a ruler and bone folder to score between opposite sets of dotted lines for folds. Cut out (trim top with pinking shears, if you like); cut slits where shown.

  2. Bend bag into shape, creasing folds. At bottom, tuck small side flaps under larger ones; tape. Tuck side tab inside; tape.

  3. Glue on waxed twine for handles. Wrap money in tissue; put into bag.
