Sweet (news)paper bags

Ah, the web... The more I think about life before the internet, the more I wonder... What did we used to do? What are the chances I would have come across this amazing Vietnamese tutorial? And even, how would I have been able to read/translate Vietnamese in order to write this post?

Anyhoo, I am glad I found this. I know it came from this link, and in a wild guess, I'd say this is a TV channel website?! But I am really not sure. I am glad the images say it all.

Sweet (news)paper bags. You could make them out of brown paper too, great to hold baby or wedding shower favours
I love the fact this is very self-explanatory, but let me know if you need a hand

In Brazil, on the 27th September, we celebrate a Christian holiday that is somehow our "halloween". Kids hit the streets asking for sweets and toys and it is tradition to give them little bags filled up with all sorts of candies. I can't help but think these would be perfect for it. 

But they are great for birthday party favours as well. And, of course, you can use the same tutorial to make them out of brown paper, instead of newspaper, and they would be amazing for baby or wedding showers. In the UK, you can get a bag with 20 rounded doilies in 4 different sizes for only £1.
