{DIY} How to Make Paper Bag Cutlery Pouches

by Jillian Leslie on

This being Labor Day weekend, I thought I'd share how to make these cute paper bag cutlery pouches. They work great at BBQs, picnics, or any other kind of outdoor party. They're casual, but also add a touch of polish, and that's what I love about them.


  • Paper favor bags (I bought mine at PaperSource)
  • Cute napkins (I bought these pig napkins at Sur La Table)
  • Cutlery (I used plastic, but I love the look of bamboo)
  • Scissors
  • Tape
  • Stamp pads
  • Stamps

First I decorated my paper bags bags with a cutlery stamp using red ink, then added  a little extra shimmer with these silver hearts.

I folded up the bottom of my bag up about an inch and a half.

I folded in the two sides until they met and taped them.

I rolled my fork, spoon, and knife in the napkin, then tucked the whole thing in the bag. I tied them with a little bakers' twine... and finished! Cute and simple!
