Make sure you have all your materials to hand before you start. You can see everything you need at a glance in our photo. If you don’t have a sewing machine, you can sew the edges of the bag with needle and thread, or glue it together.
Wash out the milk carton thoroughly and cut it open. Carefully remove the aluminium lining, taking care not to tear it. It’s a good idea to rinse the foil again at this stage. Now fold the foil sheet into a flat bag shape, with the silvery side on the inside. Sew together on three sides, leaving the top open.
You can now use the edding 1800 fineliner to decorate the bag in your own style. You’ll find the fine pen nib ideal for delicate black patterns and fine drawings.
