Gold Rush Pouch

Materials Needed

Lunch Bag
Leather String or Jute

                                                          Sponge and Water

Crush the lunch bag in half horizontally.   Crush the bag until it begins to look like faux leather.  Sponge the paper sack with a light amount of water and let dry.  Turn the top of the sack under about a l/2 " and glue the tip of the edges down so that you will be able to string the leather or plastic thread through the bag when it drys.  Sponge brown paint onto the crush faux leather bag and let dry.
